LOTON CORP’s (OTC: LIVX) LIVEXLIVE subsidiary has entered into an agreement with KAOS CONNECT and SCREENVISION MEDIA to exhibit its “Best of the Fest” music festival series, showcasing LIVEXLIVE’s produced and curated content from leading music artists and labels. “Best of the Fest” will roll-out in 2017 to select theaters within SCREENVISION MEDIA’s network of more than 14,300 screens. LIVEXLIVE has already partnered with ROCK IN RIO, OUTSIDE LANDS and other festivals to present performances of artists such as KATY PERRY, RIHANNA, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, MAROON 5, RADIOHEAD, CHANCE THE RAPPER, METALLICA, ELTON JOHN, AVICII and PLACIDO DOMINGO.
The alliance will be spearheaded by former NCM/FATHOM executives DAN DIAMOND and SHELLY MAXWELL of KAOS CONNECT.
“Our alliance with KAOS and SCREENVISION MEDIA extends our platform beyond the realm of personal screens and onto the silver screen where fans can share a larger than life experience,” said LiveXLive FoUnder/Chairman ROBERT ELLIN. “We believe the growth of the live music business is just like the sports world’s hockey stick-like growth 30 years ago. The number of live music events, tickets sold, and sponsor dollars spent is soaring –and we are only at the beginning of the digital side of this revolution. We expect to extend the platform to OTT, Cable/Satellite, VR and beyond.”
