LiveXLive Media, Inc., a global digital media company focused on live entertainment, and Dash Radio, a digital radio broadcasting platform with more than 80 original live stations, announced today that they have partnered to launch Dash channels across LiveXLive’s subsidiary Slacker Radio (“Slacker”), a streaming music and personalized radio subscription service. The introduction of Dash content marks the first time live radio is being made available to fans across the Slacker platform, including Dash’s custom partner channels featuring Snoop Dogg, Odd Future, Lil Wayne, Oscar De La Hoya, and many more artists. The agreement also provides Dash with increased visibility and access to Slacker’s robust audience of users along with the ability to broadcast live from select LiveXLive partner festivals.
LiveXLive delivers premium livestreamed, digital audio and on-demand music experiences from the world’s top music festivals and concerts, including Rock in Rio, EDC Las Vegas, Hangout Music Festival, and many more.
Dash offers millions of listeners non-stop, live broadcasts and original stations across multiple genres and categories. Its stations are hand-curated and powered by some of the biggest artists, DJs, radio personalities, musicians, and music tastemakers in the world.
The Dash integration provides Slacker users with seamless access to new music and original programming across a variety of Dash’s live streaming stations. As one of the industry’s leading live music streaming platforms, LiveXLive will also provide Dash with onsite access to some of the world’s biggest music festivals for the purpose of creating co-branded audio and video shoulder content such as artist interviews with Dash hosts. The exclusive content will broadcast across Dash, Slacker and LiveXLive channels to promote each festival’s live stream as well as the collective content suite.
In addition to bolstering Slacker’s relationships with key talent across music and entertainment, the agreement also strengthens Dash’s distribution, content, and market presence. The integration provides Dash with access to a new base of consumers and music enthusiasts through Slacker’s proven programming and personalization platform.
