Spacebar Brings Live Concerts to your iPhone

Spacebar Brings Live Concerts to your iPhone

There are many ways for us to listen to music. We can purchase it, rip it from CD’s, and stream it online through applications like Slacker & Rdio. However, what if you want to listen to live concerts. Many use Archivist, an application that roughly houses 75,000 live concerts in archive that users can listen to. Spacebar takes it a step further and offers customers to listen to live concerts as they happen. 

You heard me right the first time but just case you did not understand, Spacebar allows users to listen to live concerts as they happen. There are no archives in Spacebar. You can only listen to a concert as its going live. Once the concert is over, it is over. It gives you the feeling at the concert from your iPhone.

Part of the policy requires the user to agree to the conditions that they will “not to record, copy, or distribute the live stream” in order to be able to use the service. According the Techcrunch, “the policy helps Spacebar avoid costly licensing deals with publishers.”

Live concerts not only include indie group but also much popular artists like John Legend & Kanye West. Popular artist joined Spacebar through partnership with Backplane. Many more artists are planned to join Spacebar in the future.

The Spacebar application allows up to 5 minutes free of charge per concert. If you want to keep listening, all you have to pay is $0.99 per concert. The fee is paid via PayPal and is split between the artist, venue, & Spacebar at the end of the concert. Those of you that are extra generous are able to “tip” artists.

Spacebar is unique but its mass popularity will depend on whether or not popular artists adopt Spacebar. The quality of the sound is said to ranges up to 256Kbps but until it picks up it is hard to say how reliable the quality & stream will be under heavy use. The application is free on iTunes.
