Northern Online Broadcasts 1 - 5 May 2018
From Nigel Slee at Jazz North
Next week sees the return of Jazz North's Northern Online Broadcasts festival week. Over 5 days starting on Tuesday 1 May Jazz North will be broadcasting a programme of pre-recorded performances featuring artists from their northern line touring support scheme.
There will be a total of 32 bands featured in 20 programmes broadcast at four times of day over five days. The broadcast times run from 0800 UK through to 1900 UK with evenings left free to avoid clashing with ‘real’ gigs that might be taking place.
Nigel says “The idea isn’t to replace the live experience with online streamed gigs but to use online broadcasting to stimulate interest in the artists and the vibrant northern jazz scene”.
Qwest.tv are sponsoring an online quiz competition that’s open to anyone who visits the festival website between 1-5 May. The winner will receive a 12 month subscription to the new 'netflix for jazz' broadcaster Qwest.tv.
The programmes will be broadcast in 1080p HD on Jazz North’s YouTube channel with other festival activity appearing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
