“The opportunity for Cinsay to be part of this festival is significant to our technology and we continue to be very excited about the growth of this entertainment trend and the opportunities developing inside the music industry. After the success of this year’s Mick Fleetwood Blues Band and Under the Sun concerts, we are seeing the audience growth, fan engagement and conversion for online sales continue to increase,” said Christian Briggs, founder and CEO of Cinsay.
During the 20+ hours of interviews, behind the scenes and live concert, fans can also share the HD video and embed it on their own Facebook feed and tumblr pages.
