One of the most interesting sessions at the Midem conference this year was the panel on live-streaming, talking about how musicians are using services like YouNow and Periscope. Now there’s a Spanish startup aiming to provide that function just for musicians. It’s called Netstage, and armed with its ‘The Periscope for Music’ slogan, the Valencia-based company wants to get artists playing for and video-chatting with their fans. Its website reveals a Twitch-like interface with fans chatting on the right as they watch video on the left, complete with a ’selfie’ button to ping their face in to the chat panel. According to the site, Spanish collecting society SGAE is involved, as is startup incubation program Lanzadera. The company’s CEO and co-founder is Paul Dann, formerly an artist signed to Universal Music in Spain.
