Proceeds from the live stream will benefit Teen Cancer America, a charity founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who which aims to educate and support hospitals and outpatient facilities in the development of specialized units for teenagers undergoing cancer treatment.
At Mountain Jam next week, fans will be able to live stream four days of live music. Viewers can donate what they want ($5 per day minimum) to watch the festival live with proceeds supporting the charity. Also, fans will be able to tip the artists during their performances and the high tipper during certain sets will receive a prize pack containing signed artist memorabilia. The live stream will be broadcast in HD and will be available on computers, televisions and mobile devices. Fans can tweet, post, and chat with others who are enjoying the festival as well.

According to Matt Henderson, co-founder of Tourpedo, “We are proud to be partnering with Mountain Jam for the second year in a row to live stream this awesome festival. It’s a good feeling to know that you can provide fans with over 30 hours of live music while also raising money to support Teen Cancer America through our versatile streaming platform. The artists and Tourpedo are excited to be a part of such a great festival that supports a great cause.”
