The ARIA awards are happening this weekend, and all this week to celebrate, Apple and ARIA are putting on a series of concerts in the Botanic Gardens in Sydney. And they’re streaming the shows live via a free app on the App Store.
So far, John Butler and Washington have already played, with Guy Sebastian playing tonight, Sia tomorrow night and Angus & Julia Stone playing on Friday. Once the live stream’s finished, the concert is available to watch for free for another week.
The app has links to artist profiles and links to buy their music via iTunes.
Streaming quality is great – I watched the John Butler concert on the train to work streaming over NextG and the video only dropped out a couple of times, but the audio stayed for pretty much the whole time.
