Loop Announces Virtual Music Festival with Twitch Benefiting MusiCares
He’s not just a rock star CEO, but someone who really loves good music. In fact, he recognizes that most people enjoy listening to music and watching music videos. Jon Niermann takes a moment to discuss his new company Loop TV, the innovative streaming media company focused exclusively on premium short-form video. Niermann stated “I enjoy working with and providing a platform for rising artists, but I am open to working with established artists as well.”
“Loop TV is so excited about sharing video for their audience that the company is hosting the first ever Loop.TV Music Festival” in partnership with Twitch, the leading service and community for multiplayer entertainment . On April 25th, audiences can stream rising artist favorites directly in-home via the Loop TV channel and Twitch’s main page.
The festival will feature live streamed performances of both rising and favorite artists including Hanson, Francesco Yates, NETTA, Louis York, Kierra Sheard, Sharaya J, DJ Lizzy, Shawn James and many more. Viewers are encouraged to make donations benefiting MusiCares through Tiltify to help support the artists involved in the festival. A portion of Loop TV’s sponsorships will be going towards MusiCares to help all the artists and musicians affected by COVID-19. Talkhouse–the podcast and live event media company that gives top talent the space to discuss culture and art in their own words–will be partnering with the event to create new live podcast content.
“As COVID-19 continues, so many people are affected in so many ways including artists and musicians losing revenue due to cancelled tours,” said Jon Niermann, CEO and Co-Founder of Loop Media. “While we’re all looking for new ways to entertain ourselves at home, now is the perfect time for audiences to sit back and watch the great live acts they’d otherwise be missing. Through MusicCares, the Loop.TV Music Festival will allow fans to directly support artists along with everyone else during these tough times.”
With Loop TV, audiences can enjoy the world’s largest music video library or broadcast your own 24/7 music video channel with the free Loop app for iPhone and Android. Loop is also available on all popular connected TVs including Amazon Fire TV and Android TV supported sets such as Sony, Sharp, Philips and more.
Loop is available as both a free ad-supported service or a low-priced premium subscription. Full lineup of artists and more details on the event can be seen here on the website, and viewers can live stream the festival on April 25th here on the Twitch website.
