The Fan Engagement Challenge

Generic intro: 

Live Music is all about full personal immersion in a collective unpredictable experience. Today, Livestreaming has become a commodity but also, by default a new window of expression for confined artists. Live music online can be a lot more than few cameras in front of a band performing. A deeper approach on fan engagement and interactions with third party services and new devices needs to be explored as well as a proper curatorial approach to the content design and storytelling. Can Festivals & Venues reinvent their online environnement as an extension to physical gigs ? 

It's time to move the live music online forward. We are looking for startups / teams / individuals to come up with novel ideas, concepts and solutions for 3 subtracks.
