ccMixter BIG Summer Music Fest Kicks Off Today
Virtual Music Festival Creates and Shares a Universe of Music All Summer Long
By: ArtisTech Media
Imagine visiting an intimate stage in a tented room featuring unplugged singer-songwriters;
“The ccMixter BIG Summer Music Fest is, well, big!” stated Emily Richards, CEO ArtisTech Media, and the ccMixter artist known as Snowflake. “With artists all around the world contributing, remixing and broadcasting our collective creations, I can only imagine the new kinds of music that will emerge.”
Every two weeks, artists will focus on specific genres to fill the virtual tent with music. Along the way, artists and listeners alike are encouraged to curate playlists and host podcasts to share the new musical creations. Artists are invited to add their creative contributions to ccMixter's new (and always optional) ccPlus music library to offer commercial-use options for visitors to dig.ccMixter.org and ccMixter.org.
Playlists by genre that include ccPlus content will be featured on Jamendo and FMA. The ccMixter BIG Summer Music Fest will culminate with a set of albums that will be mastered and distributed on iTunes, Amazon, Jamendo Pro and more.
