Daniel Fahey - 12 April 2011
The broadcast company are set to film 12 events in high-definition over the summer including Download,
Hard Rock Calling, Latitude and Lovebox.
Channel bosses have only decided to use 3-D technology at the Isle Of Wight Festival and Bestival though.
“The festivals we have chosen to partner attract some of the biggest and most exciting acts. We are particularly excited about Bestival and the Isle of Wight festivals, where we’ll break new ground by bringing them to the life through 3D,” said John Cassy, Channel Director of Sky Arts and Sky 3D. “Broadcasting live in 3D is an amazing opportunity to bring viewers closer than ever to the real festival experience.”
Here’s where Sky Arts will be filming:
Isle of Wight (3D & HD)
