AEG has announced some details about the festival coverage that will be aired on the US TV channel in which it has a stake during 2015.

AXS TV, which shares its brand with AEG’s ticketing platform, broadcast from the second weekend of Coachella earlier this year, and will do so again next April. Though AXS TV will also be filming content at the Stagecoach, Jazzfest, Rock On The Range and Firefly festivals next year too, amounting to about 70 hours of coverage.

Confirming all of this, AXS TV Founder Mark Cuban said in a statement: “AXS TV is committed to delivering the best in live music, and we’re proud to continue that legacy with this groundbreaking line up. Nothing compares to a live music event, and now our audience will get a front-row seat to five incredible festivals, as we bring the ultimate concert experience to our viewers”.
