(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — RealNetworks has launched several Europe-based online radio stations devoted to the mobile-phone manufacturer Nokia’s live music events in 2005.
Each of the new Nokia Raw stations is dedicated to the five main events, including the Nokia Urban Music Festival, the Nokia Isle of Wight Festival, the Nokia Unleashed Music Festival, the Carling Weekend (Reading and Leeds Festivals), and the Nokia Raw Tour.
The four of the five stations feature content from each festival’s artists, with tracks selected from RealNetworks’ European catalog of licensed music.
The fifth station, dedicated to the Nokia Raw Tour, is devoted to emerging and breakthrough acts such as El Presidente and the Needs. These acts played the Nokia Raw Tour, which began in September and comprised more than 150 gigs throughout the U.K.
Listeners will also be able to download free MP3 recordings from live performances on the tour. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
