Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2014
Fans who cannot attend the BUKU Music + Art Project can still experience the event thanks to the partnership between Huka Entertainment, Winter Circle Productions and Live Media Group, who will be making the event accessible online and in real-time. Thousands will be attending the New Orleans event on March 21-22 and for the first time Huka Entertainment and Winter Circle Productions are bringing this event to online viewers all over the world with the development of Live Media Group’s Virtual Wristband®. The one-of-a-kind technology creates an unlimited amount of ‘virtual tickets’ that online viewers can purchase to experience this event live as if they were there.
LMG’s Virtual Wristband® - a live online pay-per-view model - provides online access codes so viewers can have access to multiple live cameras from their web enabled mobile device, computer or other second screen device. All featured artists’ performances will be streamed online and will generate the same enlivenment of being in the crowds at BUKU Music + Art Project. Viewers can select their own camera view to create their customized experience to feel and witness the energy and the excitement at the event.
“Live Media Group has an amazing product in Virtual Wristband and we are ecstatic to provide the madness that is BUKU to both fans onsite and online,” says Dante DiPasquale, Winter Circle Productions and BUKU Co-Founder.
With Virtual Wristband® fans can see and experience exciting performances, live from headliners Carnage, Paper Diamond, Conspirator, Blue Sky Black Death, Young and Sick, Gravity A, and many more.
“We’re excited to offer fans that aren’t able to physically attend BUKU, the opportunity to still attend virtually. Producing this live festival webcast enables people from all over the world to experience BUKU Music + Art Project and the city of New Orleans,” said Jeff Kreinik, COO of Huka Entertainment.
Over the past few years, LMG has been transforming the entertainment broadcast experience into a 360 degree personalized look. Known as an innovative and fast-moving company, LMG working with Huka Entertainment acknowledged the demand for more accessible events and are now paving the way with Virtual Wristband® at BUKU Music + Art Project.
“Virtual Wristband® creates unlimited, affordable tickets. With this technology, the on line viewer who for some reason cannot attend can watch the artists’ performances and experience the vibe of the event with on-line affordable access,” says Brad Sexton, President and CEO of Live Media Group. “Virtual Wristband® was tailor built to industry and consumer needs so we are extremely excited to showcase its capabilities working closely with Huka Entertainment for the BUKU Music + Art Project.”
