The World Music Contest 2022 in Kerkrade has announced that IBB Media Ltd will be the livestreaming and recording partner for all indoor events for this year's event.
It will include those for brass band, concert band, fanfare band and percussion ensembles in addition to many of the midweek concerts from the Roda Hall and Theatre. All events will be available both as livestream and 'on demand' catch up.
IBB Media will also broadcast daily from the WMC Village in the city park of Kerkrade.
It is understood that a new subscription platform will be developed by IBB Media exclusively for the WMC.
Whilst the coverage of the showband, marching and marching parade events in the Parkstad Limburg Stadium will be recorded by a separate partner of the WMC, all the coverage of stadium events will be streamed by IBB Media through this new platform.
WMC, General Manager Marcel Andriolo commented: "We are very pleased with the partnership with IBB Media Ltd. As an international wind music festival, we think it is important that our content — the live streams of the performances — is available for music fans everywhere.
We believe that IBB Media has the experience and knowledge to help us take the next step in building an even stronger online community in the world of wind music."
