blinkx, the video engine, has formed a partnership with Ustream, the technology platform for live social video streaming. Through the partnership, Ustream events will now be available live on blinkx.com. To kick off both the partnership and 2013 summer concert season, the 2013 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee will be streamed live to blinkx.com.
The festival, featuring acts such as Paul McCartney and Mumford & Sons, starts in June 13th.
“We’re very pleased to partner with Ustream to broadcast live events, and thrilled to launch this opportunity by bringing a legendary festival like Bonnaroo to blinkx.com,” said S. Brian Mukherjee, CEO of blinkx. “Ustream’s live Bonnaroo coverage will allow music-loving blinkx users around the world to enjoy the same fantastic line-up on their laptops as enjoyed by fans camped out on location in Tennessee.”
