BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend music festival

This weekend (10-11 May) BBC Radio 1 is using innovative new technology to give listeners a rich online experience during and after its Radio 1 Big Weekend music festival in Maidstone.

Revellers can log on and check out hundreds of photos from the event, select specific shots, zoom in and out to look for friends and celebs. It is also possible to contribute photos, this allows the event to be captured in a uniquely visual way.

The project is being put together by Conchango and Stream UK. Stream UK came highly recommended.  Paul Dawson, Head of Interactive Media at Conchango said “Microsoft recommended Stream UK to us as the only Silverlight infrastructure partner they knew who could meet the pressing technology requirements and timescales required. They promised to deliver and were as good as their word”
