The Social Media Experiment will fuse live music, DJ sets, spoken word, comedy and art with various online and social media platforms on Glastonbury's 40th Birthday party. This
merger will occur through the Igloo Domes high definition visuals and Dolby 6.1 surround sound technology. It will incorporate a variety of different social media platforms, streaming technology and Bluetooth, making the experiment a truly immersive experience.
The Social Media Experiment will take place on Friday the 25th June between 1pm & Midnight, and will feature a number of comedians, musicians, performance artists and live shows incorporating social media and interactive web technologies. Such events include a stand-up comedy act using Chatroulette Live. Other highlights include a virtual art gallery and a range of musicians using social media within their performances. The Social Media Experiment's Perform at Glastonbury 2010 facebook competition gives entrants the chance to perform live on the Glastonbury stage. In order to win, visitors to the site are asked to join the competition group on Facebook. The winning act will then be chosen from the group at random in this flash mob style competition.
