Livestream brings music fans worldwide the best seat in the house for the legendary Swiss music festival
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveXLive Media, Inc. (LIVX) ("LiveXLive"), a global digital media company focused on live entertainment, today announced that it would livestream the acclaimed Montreux Jazz Festival for the second consecutive year. Pursuant to a five-year content and distribution partnership agreement announced in May 2018, LiveXLive will livestream from Lake Geneva on July 1, July 4-5, and July 13, the festival's closing night. The livestream is exclusive to LiveXLive outside of Switzerland.
The Montreux Jazz Festival, now in its 53rd year, will draw more than a quarter-million concertgoers. Exploring current sounds, and celebrating timeless music, more than 300 artists will perform at the festival, including Elton John, Slash, Janelle Monáe, Sting, Chemical Brothers, Cat Power, ZZ Top, Miss Lauryn Hill, Janet Jackson, and Thom Yorke. Montreux Jazz Festival's co-curator and global ambassador, Quincy Jones, will play on the festival's closing night. In addition to performances, LiveXLive will bring viewers artist interviews, behind-the-scenes exclusives, commentary, and segments highlighting the beauty of the festival's Lake Geneva backdrop.
"The Montreux Jazz Festival is hands down, my absolute favorite festival, and this year will mark my first time playing there with a full symphony orchestra!" Quincy Jones said. "We've got a star-studded lineup and will be performing all of the hits! I know it's going to be a very special night, and I hope as many of you as possible can join us there in person. But for those of you who can't make it to Montreux, it makes my soul smile to know that you can still experience some of the concert's magic through the LiveXLive platform, from any corner of the planet."
"Last year's Montreux Jazz Festival was a tremendous success, generating 4.5 million views," said Robert Ellin, Chairman and CEO of LiveXLive. "As we have continued to expand our global footprint and curate more and more exclusive festival rights, we fully expect to draw a much larger audience for this amazing event."

It can also be accessed via the network's OTT channels on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV, and on YouTube, LiveXLive's Twitch channel, and other social platforms.
