Cohort 9 (Jan-May 2018)


AndMe.TV is a virtual meet & greet platform that allows musicians to engage with fans on a whole new level. Our talk show style, interactive broadcast enables fans to meet their favorite artists face-to-face, through live, exclusive video sessions. Musicians can host Q&A’s, take fans behind the scenes, throw a virtual album release party & more. They can broadcast from anywhere, on the go, with no fancy equipment—just a webcam, laptop, or mobile device with an internet connection, while fans tune in from home. AndMe.TV and their artists have one mission—No Fan Left Behind. This campaign strives to bring VIP experiences to fans who cannot physically attend events or meet the artists they love, due to distance or other obstacles.
