|If you're not going to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza or Austin City Limits this year, you'll still have a good chance to catch them on a live stream webcast brought to us by YouTube and Dell. They'll feature a combination of live stream and archived webcast videos for all four of the music festivals through dedicated YouTube channels, creating the ability to watch YouTube music videos dedicated to each of the music festivals.
The basic arrangement is simple: the YouTube music videos platform through youtube.com combined with Dell onsite hardware makes the music festival experience possible. Together they'll create the ability for everyone on the Web to watch the music festival experience with "multiple live channels, behind-the-scenes content and exclusive artist interviews."
The YouTube live streaming capability was added last year, giving YouTube the ability to create a live video webcast platform. It did the music festival webcasts for Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza or Austin City Limits then, so it makes sense that they'll do it again. The YouTube music festival video experience involved multiple YouTube channels for each music festival, allowing users to choose between multiple live stream and archived video performances during the music festival weekend. It'll be interesting to see how the new YouTube channels features in recent YouTube updates will affect the ability of users to slice up performances and add them to their own YouTube channels. Wait and watch.
