Keep in mind FANS.com, the social networking platform devoted to reside music and sharing present experiences and importing pictures and ticket stubs and whatnot? They’ve introduced they’ll be archiving the previous platform and shifting to one thing new, so should you have been a giant fan and an influence person, this announcement might be a little bit of a bummer.
They’re pivoting to one thing else that’s sorta like a social community however this time it’s going to be based mostly round live-streaming. In line with their new web site design, “FANS is an immersive livestreaming platform altering the way in which music is created, shared, and skilled, regardless of the place it finds you.” Okay. That’s new.
Undecided finally what this may appear to be but, however the unhappy information for anybody that was utilizing the platform earlier than is that you simply solely have a brief period of time to hop into the archived previous platform and obtain the present information you have been amassing. Everybody will get shut off on April 29th.
As for the brand new product, it appears to be like like tomorrow, Wednesday April eighth, might be everybody’s first likelihood to see what the brand new factor appears to be like like. The group might be streaming a full day of programming from veteran jamband moe., together with previous reveals, interviews, further stuff, and so forth. They’ll be doing the identical factor on Friday, April 10th for Darkish Star Orchestra, the Tier 1 veteran Grateful Lifeless cowl band. I’ll in all probability tune in and see what the fuss is about, however I hope for his or her sake they’ve created a novel expertise that sustains by means of the brand new live-streaming gold rush.
