Festival promoter Danny Wimmer Presents partners with Twitch

Leading independent festival promoter and producer Danny Wimmer Presents has partnered with Twitch, a leading interactive livestreaming service. The DWPresents channel will feature original live content with music artists and global talent, reaching a worldwide audience.

The all-new DWPresents Twitch channel will start streaming at 7:30 p.m. EDT Thursday, June 3, and will stream original content six days a week. Shows will include “The Writer’s Circle” hosted by Fever 333’s Jason Aalon Butler and featuring Crown the Empire, Escape the Fate, Nothing More and Spiritbox, and “The Lab,” hosted by TikTok sensation and musician Jeris Johnson and SiriusXM’s Caity Babs. 

The DWPresents channel also will become the home for the already popular “That Space Zebra Show,” hosted by Bobby Schubenski (Blackcraft founder), Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit) and Josh Balz (Strange Kids, ex-Motionless in White). It will continue to broadcast four times weekly and incorporate new musical features, including Riff Wars with Wes Borland and Starving Artists, as well as launch the Battle for the Big Stage: Road to Rockville Edition, where a band can win a slot at the 2021 Welcome to Rockville event being held from Nov. 11 to 14.

On June 3, DWPresents will kick off its channel with a six-hour live broadcast from Musicians Institute’s LiveHouse Hollywood, hosted by “That Space Zebra Show” and unveiling the new programming. The program will include the conclusion of Space Zebra’s “Road to LA” competition, with two fan-chosen bands battling head to head live for the chance to win a demo deal with Alchemy Recordings. Throughout the day, viewers will hear from bands including Crown the Empire, Escape the Fate, Fever 333, Nothing More and Spiritbox, taking a deep dive into the programming to come. The day will be topped off with a headlining performance by Atreyu.

In addition, DWPresents on Twitch will feature four days of select performances and content from the Welcome to Rockville 4-Day Festival Livestream: backstage interviews, commentary with artists, games and trivia with bands. Fans should expect content from other DWP festivals and events, as well.

“We have been looking for the right partner to livestream our events and create original content,” said Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents. “Twitch’s focus on fan interaction and engagement allows us to bring our core mission of providing unparalleled experiences to the streaming space. I am excited about what we have planned and thrilled about this next step in DWP’s evolution.”

“Through our partnership with Danny Wimmer Presents, incredible artists and bands have the opportunity to continue to build their own brands, connect with fans live and form communities on a global scale in a way that has never been so accessible,” said Will Farrell-Green, head of Music Content at Twitch. “We’re looking forward to the incredible programming and what our communities create together.”
