To get you through the festival season, the Nokia Music Mixmasters have created the ultimate virtual festival.
How does it work you ask? Well, in the spirit of some of the larger worldwide festivals there are Mixes dedicated to different genres, for example the Jazz Bus and The Rock Temple.
All you have to do is choose your virtual tent of choice and enjoy listening. Pop it on to get you in the mood whilst packing for your festival or avoid the muddy fields by listening in your back garden. It’s live now, so tune in and fill your ears.
We talked to Sharon Jackson, one of our Mixmasters, about the Ultimate Festival mixes.
“It’s been exciting helping to launch the first Nokia Music Festival. We’ve researched the world’s biggest and best festivals and the team of mixmasters has really learnt a thing of two about our global festival culture. Hip-Hop & reggae lovers would be in heaven over at Germany’s Splash! Festival, while Sonar in Spain is dedicated purely to house and techno.
Our virtual Festival is varied in its stages and rich in content – from the Swing Stage, to the Indie Tent, people can enjoy whichever type of festival they prefer all in one place. It’s pretty awesome!”
So as you can see, it’s not just for UK festival goers. The Mixes have been localised with the help of the local editors to make sure each festival experience works for all territories. Carolien Bastiaans, our German Entertainment Manager, explains:
“Creating an ultimate lineup for the German version of the Nokia Music festival was not easy – so many great artists from Germany and abroad take onto festival stages every year. The goal is for our local audience to recognise some of their favourite acts as well as be surprised and discover new names.”
