Crackle’s New Channel is Dedicated to Concerts and Music Festivals





Today the free streaming service Crackle announced its newest channel, “Sounds of Summer” launching July 1, 2020. The hand-curated channel will be sort of an ode to music festivals and concerts since most of the live events this year have been either cancelled or postponed.

“When concerts and festivals are otherwise cancelled or worrisome to attend, we’re thrilled to bring footage of some of the most influential musicians of all time right into the living rooms of our viewers,” said Philippe Guelton, President of Crackle Plus. “We know that our audience wants to see their favorite artists, and Crackle is working to make it happen.”
