On Saturday the 13th of June 2009 Stream UK’s team of experienced webcasting professionals filmed LIVE from a bedroom in Gravesend which was then streamed live via satellite link to 50,000 Rockers viewing the live stream on big screens at the Download Festival in Nottingham.
For any unsigned metal or rock band, the thought of playing the main stage on Saturday night at Download in front of thousands of people is a distant dream. For one band, that dream became a reality.
Red Bull Bedroom Jam have been running a very special competition where one lucky band would get the chance to play live at Download 2009. The winning band was selected from hundreds of uploaded videos from unsigned under 18 year old musicians.
However instead of actually turning up in Nottingham, the band would play live from their…bedroom, streamed up to space and downloaded at the Download festival.
Production included multi camera shoot, video editing and live vision mixing with video inserts and full project management of the production and satellite feeds.
