2014 RCMHangout Festival – Apply To Play

RCMHangout Festival

Frustrated with bad promoters and bad live music experiences, we decided to create a new live music platform.

In 2013 we launched RCMHangout Sessions and The RCMHangout Festival, one of the first online-only music festivals using Google+ Hangouts On Air. Bands and artists played live from their homes to the world via the RCM music blog.

Over the festival weekend, we streamed 27 different artists, from 4 different countries to viewers in over 20 different countries, giving independent artists access to a truly global audience. It was a huge success and we even caught the attention of the BBC and Google.

“A fantastic way to discover your new favourite bands, The RCM Hangout Festival creates an innovative and engaging way to immerse yourself in a festival without leaving home.  It successfully supports new music at the same time as taking the digital coverage of events into new realms.”
 Rory Connolly, Digital Editor, BBC Music Events and Introducing.
“RCM is a valued member of the Google+ Community showing best use of our Hangouts on Air streaming product.”
James Howard, Google Music

This year we’re going even bigger.

To be eligible to perform, you just need a webcam and a reliable, fast broadband connection.
