The acts already announced to be featured in the live stream are US Hip Hop group Arrested Development; Portuguese fado chanteuse singer Carminho; Algerian activist singer Rachid Taha; and Sydney-based Assyrian-Iraqi Band Azadoota.
The company expects to finalise more live streaming agreements before the festival commences on March 7.

The ISP will provide on the ground technical skills and equipment to enable the live streaming as well as negotiating full rights clearance with all artists involved.
