NEW YORK (Hypebot) — MashupFM is hosting a live mashup music festival on Turntable.fm called Mashtival taking place this Wednesday, December 7th, from 7 pm till 1 am EST.
Starting at 7, five up and coming artists will open in each of three Turntable.fm mashup rooms and at 8 headliners will take the stage. Considering the potential popularity of such an event, it may be yet another sign that Turntable's 200 capacity limit per room needs to be rethought.
Though it's neither the first "online music festival" nor the first "music festival on Turntable.fm," MashupFM's Mashtival may well be the "first online mashup music festival." But why don't we just settle on it being a cool development on Turntable.fm and leave it at that?
