WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveXLive Media, Inc. (LIVX) ("LiveXLive"), a global digital media company focused on live entertainment, today announced that it will livestream "Escape: Psycho Circus" as part of the company's broad genre-leading partnership with festival creator Insomniac Events. The fourth of five Insomniac festivals that LiveXLive will stream this year, "Escape: Psycho Circus" takes place at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA on Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27, the weekend leading up to Halloween. "So stacked it's frightening," the festival features performances by more than 50 artists, including Diplo, Kaskade, Martin Garrix and Galantis.
A Halloween tradition since 2011, Escape 2017 drew an audience of 125,000 music fans. With four stages—Slaughterhouse, Ghouls' Graveyard, Chopping Block, and Cannibal's Tea Party—Escape: Psycho Circus is celebrated for both its musical lineup and over-the-top dedication to frightening festival attendees with nightmarish on-site experiences such as the Asylum, 32,000 square feet of movie-quality set designs and special effects that features 30 distinct environments inhabited by more than 120 costumed performers.
Bringing the best seat in the house to music fans worldwide who can't attend the festival in person, LiveXLive will livestream performances and original content throughout the multi-day festival. The livestream can be accessed at www.livexlive.com/live-events/festival/escape-psycho-circus and through the LiveXLive mobile and OTT apps for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV. The stream will also appear on YouTube, LiveXLive's Twitch channel, and other social platforms. An audio stream will be available on LiveXLive's Slacker radio platform at www.slacker.com. The start time and livestream lineup will be announced on www.livexlive.com and LiveXLive's social handles and apps.
LiveXLive plans to stream more than 27 music festivals and concerts across the globe featuring over 350 hours of live content during its 2019 fiscal year. Escape: Pyscho Circus will be, by far, the scariest.
