Moverz, a community that collaborates to grow brands they believe in, Viola Media, and Limelight Music, the new video live streaming social media platform for music, celebrated creativity and helped raise money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) by throwing a two day virtual event featuring live music and comedy for lovers of music festivals, with aim to promote health alliance.
Virtual STATTFest was live on limelight for more than eight hours each day! Utilizing technology that will soon be available to the average limelight user, the show was streamed with professional studio equipment, thanks to Celia Werner Productions, and sets were broken up with commentary from the hosts, interviews, and all sorts of other gems. The whole event transported us back to the golden era of music television, when the Buggles first broke onto the music video scene, only this time, it’s live streaming that killed the radio star. With everything from the creative pineapple commercials of Viola Media between sets, to the fantastic live music performances, this event was one for the record books.
The virtual event was held in Long Island at West Industry Studios, under tight security, with only authorized artists and crew allowed in, while viewers were able to watch the festival livestream on Limelight Music. But miraculously, limelight’s co-founder RJ Hammond managed to sneak his way on set, and surprised everyone with an on-camera interview discussing limelight’s platform and its budding place in the industry.
In addition to limelight, the event was also livestreamed on YouTube and Facebook, but the audio and video quality was noticeably better on Limelight, and most importantly, so was the fan experience. Through limelight, STATTFest viewers were able to tip in-stream with all proceeds going to NAMI, and if you missed the chance to show your support, don’t fret! The shows are readily available to rewatch on limelight, and all tips sent, even those sent to the video on demand, will go straight to NAMI!
