NEWS: 02 Wireless Festival to be broadcast live online

Are you a fan of The White Stripes? How about Kaiser Chiefs? What about Daft Punk, or even Faithless? If you answered 'yes' to all those questions, you really should have tickets to the 02 Wireless Festival, which runs from the 14th to the 17th of June. If you don't have tickets, however, you'll still be able to watch the festival from the comfort of your own home.

The free live webcast is the result of a deal between internet provider Tiscali and music promoter Live Nation. The festival, which takes place in London's Hyde Park over four days, will broadcast live on the internet from the festival's main stage.

But if a free live webcast isn't quiet good enough for you, you can buy tickets for the festival in Hyde Park, or the other leg of the festival which takes place in Leeds, at the 02 Wireless Festival website.

At the Hyde park event, Tiscali will also be recording exclusive live sessions from a backstage tent in the festival's VIP area, which will be viewable on-demand a few weeks after the event. So presumably the musical highlights will be complemented by footage of celeb musicians in increasingly amusing states of disrepair. We can't wait.
