LiveMusicStage is making some noise in London after partnering with leading UK music industry bodies Metropolis Group and PRS for Music. The Helsinki-based company specialises in providing interactive online versions of concert experiences, which viewers can watch streamed through their computers.

LiveMusicStage prides itself in providing high sound and video quality, making their service the closest thing you can get to actually being at the venue. Though LiveMusicStage you could watch your favourite bands tour abroad, and keep in touch with them through a Q&A service they intend on implementing.

For venues, festivals and other event organizers it’s a platform for broadcasting and monetizing their gigs and concerts.

Metropolis Group works with about half of the UK top 40 on average and is one of the most successful independent recording facilities in Europe. PRS for Music represents some 85,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers in the UK. For lovers of live music the new partnership couldn’t get much better”, says Antti Eronen, CEO of LiveMusicStage.

The integration will launch on September 4th, where you can check out “smooth voiced Kersha Bailey, the cinematic folk group Southern, harmony sisters The Edmondsons plus fresh talent Asha.”

Some venues have been upgrading their video service to the point where much of it can be easily controlled by one operator, so a service like LiveMusicStage needs to exist where they can monetize their investment. I believe fans will be receptive as well, especially for high schoolers or working people who can’t take a whole summer off to follow a Grateful Dead tour.
