/PRNewswire/ — TuneIn, Inc., the leading global streaming live audio service, today announced its role as the exclusive streaming audio partner for some of the top summer music festivals, starting with this weekend’s Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama. In addition, TuneIn has partnered with Francis Ford Coppola Wines to present three festivals — Newport Folk Festival, Newport Jazz Festival and Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival — during this summer’s slate and produce a six episode podcast series called “The Sense of Adventure.”
“Curation and music discovery is the foundation of the best music festivals and is at the core of what TuneIn listeners want,” said Charles Raggio, Head of Music Partnerships and Branded Content at TuneIn. “When we are able to work with amazing partners — from the festival organizers to brand partners like Francis Coppola Wines — to bring the live-stream element into people’s pockets and connected homes on festival weekend, it takes the entire experience to a whole new level.”
In addition to Hangout Fest (May 18-20), TuneIn will launch stations for, and be present at, Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware (June 14-17), Newport Folk (July 27-29) and Newport Jazz (August 3-5) in Newport, Rhode Island and Outside Lands in San Francisco, California (August 10-12).
Each dedicated festival station — available to all TuneIn listeners — will launch one month prior to the festival with expertly curated and human hosted, 24/7 streams to help get listeners ready for the festival. These one-of-a-kind stations will include music from artists from previous years as well as the current lineups in heavy rotation. TuneIn will also be on the ground at each festival broadcasting select live performances and in-depth, behind-the-scenes artist interviews.
“We love having an audio extension of Outside Lands that highlights our booking team’s incredible curation. Each year our partnership has grown, so much so that we are now in our third year partnering with TuneIn,” said Kate Roberts of Another Planet Entertainment. “To hear an artist talking about their songs and our festival on a 24-7 station that is promoted nationwide to TuneIn’s millions of listeners is huge!”
TuneIn listeners will also be able to check out “The Sense of Adventure,” the Francis Ford Coppola Wines-sponsored six episode podcast series, which takes a “road to” travel log approach to highlighting 2-3 artists that are playing at Newport Folk, Newport Jazz, and Outside Lands. The episodes will premiere on their respective festival station page throughout the summer.
“We are thrilled to work with TuneIn to create and launch ‘The Sense of Adventure’ podcast series this summer,” said Gabriela Becker, VP of Marketing for Francis Ford Coppola Wines. “This artist driven content allows us to engage with our consumers in fresh and fun news ways.”
