Blog, Live Streaming, Music, Technology

The Detroit Jazz Festival has received a $200,000 grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to expand its current mobile app to provide live streaming of performances from the downtown festival beginning with this year’s event on Labor Day weekend.

Festival spokesperson Steve Blow said details are still being worked out, including how much of the festival will be available, how it will be packaged and what the cost will be to consumers. But the idea is to offer audiences around the world real-time video broadcasts from the downtown stages at the festival. The festival’s current app only provides basic information like the schedule, artist biographies and the like.
