For this show, Stageside partnered with Facebook to create the social media site’s first ever pay-per-view event to create a truly “widespread” show by streaming to 19 countries worldwide. After the show, ACL Live experienced a 40% increase in fan growth, and Widespread Panic gained 20,000 more fans on their Facebook page. More than 1,900 comments were posted during the show.
“Seeing your favorite band in concert is an inherently social experience that’s always been better with friends...ACL Live has brought that excitement to Facebook.”
