Kendal Calling

Occasionally controversial video website Dailymotion is to screen several sets from this year’s Kendal Calling festival, it has been announced. Viewers will be able to live stream performances from Scrufizzer, Tea Street Band, Dutch Uncles, The Twang, Beans On Toast, Ash, Drenge and Primal Scream. There will also be footage of Basement Jaxx following their headline performance.

The performances are being screened as part of Virtual Festivals’ partnership with Dailymotion. MD of Virtual Festivals’ parent company Silver Bullet Digital Steve Wild told CMU: “The aim of Virtual Festivals is to bring the festival experience to as many people as possible and Dailymotion is a great means of achieving this, either through its own website or embeds on social and other media. We are highly confident that partnerships like this will increase the sponsorship opportunities available to festivals like Kendal Calling, helping them to grow even bigger and more compelling”.

Head Of International Content at Dailymotion Marc Eychenne added: “2013 is the Summer Of Festivals on Dailymotion – building on the 50 million hours of live music we have already streamed – and Kendal Calling is one of the leading events we are showing. Music fans around the world can watch great music from a fantastic event live on Dailymotion or embed our player onto their own social media pages to share with friends”.
