Last August we created the first ever Facebook Live music festival. The RCM Takeover Festival featured 22 artists from 5 countries, taking over our Facebook news feed to play LIVE across one incredible weekend.
At the start of this project, our aim was to create a live format that gave power back to unsigned artists. No dodgy promoters, or half empty rooms. We wanted to allow unsigned artists to play from their homes to a global audience.
We achieved it. Over the weekend, we reached over 30,000 people, spanning over 80,000 miles.
Now we are launching monthly Takeover Sessions. All you need to take part is an Internet connection and a Smart phone or tablet. We supply the admin rights to our page and of course the audience. We’ll be promoting the sessions across our blog and social media pages.
We are delighted to announce the first session will feature The Nectars. Conceived in the shadow of New York City in late 2016, The Nectars climbed out of the tangled New Jersey suburbs and into the local alternative rock consciousness.
The debut single ‘Heaven’ caused a storm when we posted it on RCM with our editorial team enthusing….
“This New Jersey four-piece ooze energy and excitement, while sassy front woman Jessica Kenny evokes the spirit of ‘Don’t Speak’ era Gwen Stefani on hiatus with the Strokes”
Watch The Nectars play exclusively live for The Takeover Sessions at 9pm UK / 4pm EST on Tuesday 27th February at the Right Chord Music Facebook page
