We’ve seen plenty of startups with platforms for creating apps for artists, but not so many focused on festivals and other music events. SecondScreen is exactly that, with the UK-based startup having launched its first app last week for the Isle of Wight Festival. The app was downloaded by more than 17,000 festivalgoers over the weekend of the event, with SecondScreen saying its platform offers event organisers features including photo and video-sharing, ticket and merch purchases and news-feeds on the artists playing. “As social media became more prevalent and fans were uploading content to various channels, I felt there was a step missing, a gap where we could create a product that was immediate and intimate for music fans,” said SecondScreen’s founder Niall Green, who is working with veteran talent agent Solomon Parker on the startup.
