RadiumOne makes sharing your festival experience even easier with Via.me

London, UK – June 2012: Via.me, the first social media platform that lets you share and filter pictures, videos, audio and text content across multiple social networks, is the social media partner at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival
.

Taking place between the 21st and 24th June, the iconic festival will host show stopping performances from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Pearl Jam and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on its main stage. Via.me will help festival-goers record and share their experiences with their fellow music-lovers as well as friends and family that aren’t at the event.

Via.me makes this especially easy to do because the action is completed in one place – you can share your story in pictures, video and sound through either (or both) your Facebook and Twitter accounts at the touch of a button.

Festival-goers can visit the dedicated Via.me page via.me/IsleofWightFestival for official posts, videos and images as well as behind the scenes footage. They can also follow the antics of others by using the festival hashtag #iowfest on their own social media updates.

With Via.me, ticket holders can far more easily and effectively share their memories from one social media platform. I’ll be keeping the Via.me followers up-to-date with the backstage shenanigans too, so the app will make the event even more exciting by bringing music fans closer to the action.”
