One of the more recent trends in music festivals, aside from attempting to create a festival experience on a cruise ship, has been streaming live broadcasts from the festival online. Festivals such as Bonnaroo, Coachella and Lollapalooza have offered up live streams for free allowing fans who aren't able to attend the popular destination fests the chance to enjoy some of the action from the comfort of wherever they can get Internet access.
Today it was announced that two more fests are getting in on the live streaming action: Budweiser's Made in America festival, which will go down Sept. 1 and 2 in Philadelphia, and Bumbershoot, which is happening Sept. 1-3 in Seattle.
Made in America is curated by Jay-Z and it's making a big splash during its inaugural year. The festival will feature sets by Jay-Z, Pearl Jam, Calvin Harris, Maybach Music Group (Wale, Rick Ross and Meek Mill), D'Angelo, The Hives, Jill Scott, Odd Future, the newly reunited Run DMC and many more big names. Selected sets from the festival will be streamed on YouTube and Pandora. You can access the YouTube stream here and the Pandora station can be found here.
Bumbershoot is in its 42nd year and it boats a rather diverse lineup with headliners such as Tony Bennett, Skrillex and Jane's Addiction. The festival won't be streamed on YouTube but selected sets will be streamed by the online radio network, TuneIn. Some of the sets slated to be broadcast include: Passion Pit, M Ward, Mudhoney, King Khan & The Shrines, THEESatisfaction and Niki and The Dove. TuneIn's Bumbershoot station can be accessed here.
