The rising popularity of live webcasts and podcasts is a result of this. Here are ten websites you could use to watch concerts online.
A very neat and tidy looking website, Concert Videos has a very good collection of concerts. You can search for them from a search box or through the top menu options. The accompanying articles too are a good read.
For $8.99 a month you can sign up to this website to watch live concerts online from a select list of venues. And if you don’t like to subscribe, you can buy a ticket to watch the concert online for $3.
As the name suggests, this site specializes in rock concerts. Some even dating back in time to the earlier part of the last century. You can watch the full concerts as well as interviews for free or tune in to Rock TV webcasts.
Concert Vault (Paid)
This is one website which has an immensely huge collection of concert videos - from David Byrne to Eric Clapton. You can select from 6 genre options or watch an interview. For $2.99 a month, it’s certainly worth your money.
A very simplistic site that adds new live music concerts every few days. However, no search box or menu options mean that you would have to manually scroll through tonnes of clicks to find that concert by date. However, you can also discover something new when you are at it.
Juke Zoo (Free)
This site albeit poorly built and with plethora of ads thrown in, can be quite an eye-sore. However, it has a good collection of concerts and webcasts to browse through on a lazy weekend. You can search for Bands, Music, Videos and Webcasts through the overhead menu.
Daytrotter itself records live music sessions and has a good collection of both new and old bands alike. You can watch concerts, as well as shop for memorabilia here. Just like going to an actual concert and all this for just $2 a month.
This website for NPR radio station has it all. You can watch recorded videos of artists live on air or the special ‘Tiny Desk’ concerts where indie bands are invited to play in the office surroundings. It may not be an actual concert, but is still fun.
Baeble Music (Free)
This is one website that is tailor made to watch videos and search for them without hassle. Just pick your favourite concert and you would get some suggestions to watch other categories, similar videos or just more of the same artist. The reviews and articles add to the experience and you could easily spend hours browsing through huge amount of content that is available here.
Mosh Cam (Free)
Of all the above, this one would be my favourite pick. It features HQ concert videos, interviews and much more. A lot of genre options to discover new music and also an iPhone and iPad app that lets you watch Live concerts anywhere on the go. Could it get any better? I guess not.Share your own concert experiences with us on Twitter or something else that you would like us to write about.
