Isle of Wight Festival and Festival Broadcast in 3D

Would You Watch a Music Festival From Home in 3D?

There's no doubt about it — music festivals are a big deal around the globe. This year, fans who couldn't make it to the annual Coachella Music and Arts festival were treated to some live streaming via YouTube, which brought their favorite artists' performances into their living rooms. Similarly, the UK's Isle of Wight Festival will be broadcasting live thanks to Sky Arts, but with an extra twist: 3D.

Starting on June 10, Sky Arts will be the first to broadcast two hours of 3D performances (including Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, and Pulp) during each day of the festival. Viewers will of course need to grab their own pair of 3D glasses and have a 3D-ready TV to fully enjoy the three dimensions of goodness, but tell me — would you even bother watching a music festival in 3D from home? Of course, there's nothing like being there to see the performances live (the pulsating music, the energy from the crowd), but I can't imagine that the 3D effects would significantly benefit viewership from home. What do you think?

The fun of music festivals is going there to soak in the atmosphere - the noise, the sweat, the elation at seeing your favourite artistes up close. 3D? No thank you!
