Today’s Music Monday is dedicated to Ultra Music Festival. Over the weekend, I had a chance to tune into the electronic music event in Miami. And to my surprise, there were hosts during the live stream… or more like side-line reporters without any knowledge of the basketball players. These Ultra VJs were asking questions like “What are you wearing?” and “What did you think of the songs you just played?” Additionally, there was one point where they asked Nicky Romero to blow a kiss to the camera… looked like it caught Nicky off guard. Not the most informative or interesting for the Ultra live stream viewers in my opinion. I would have liked to see more detailed Qs.
Remember, if you are hiring hosts for a live stream or event, prep them with as much information about the subject beforehand. Or use social media to your advantage by crowdsourcing (better)questions from the viewers. With more than 1M viewers tuning in from all over the world, this would have been the perfect opportunity for Ultra to let the crowd do the work for them.
Alright, back to my music Monday picks! Here are my top favs from the lineup. Let me know what you think in the comments. Enjoy!
