The First Ever Live Gig on Meerkat
March 24, 2015
A new video streaming app called Meerkat has been the buzz of SXSW and we were keen to see what we could do with it. We tempted a trio of local Liverpool musicians down to our office with the offer of free beer and the chance to be part of the first ever live gig streamed through Meerkat.
Idle Frets, Emilio Pinchi and Mikey Gormley took up the opportunity and each delivered a stunning acoustic session that left a lasting impression on people watching from all over the world. One record exec from Nashville got in touch to say these boys had some serious talent.
The simplicity of use of Meerkat is what has impressed us most about this revolutionary new app. We were able to deliver a really slick video stream to over 100 people. Which aint bad for the pilot show!

In fact the video stream was SO succesful we have decided to make it a consistent feature. Every Wednesday the Liverpool office will be Live Streaming interviews with music industry experts talking about their experiences as well as tips & tricks on how you can follow in the footsteps of Ditto graduates such as Royal Blood, Sam Smith and Louisa Wendorff. We will also be hosting live gigs every Friday to showcase the talent of our Ditto Music artists. That's right, YOU!
