LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- IROCKE, the #1 source for live streaming concerts worldwide, announces the schedule of live streaming concerts to be broadcast during week-long FOREVER FESTIVAL, Earth's First Live Digital Music Festival, from Sunday, August 4, 2013 at 5:00pm PDT to Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 11:59pm PDT.

Live music fans tuning into the FOREVER FESTIVAL website www.4evrfest.com and partner sites will discover and enjoy over 200 free and PPV performances by a wide range of artists in collaboration with more than 30 leading live digital concert venues in more than 10 countries around the world.

FOREVER FESTIVAL is organized by IROCKE in association with the world's leading live digital concert venues and pioneers including: Austin City Limits Live, Beta Nightclub, Beatport Live, The Bing Lounge, Bulldog Digital Media, Concert Window, Cheetah Lounge, GoPro, Livebeats, Livestream, MoonTunes, MobileRider, Renman Live, The Roxy Theatre, Saint Rocke, ShowGo.tv, Silverback Music and Management, SimplyNew, SkyRoomLive.com, Springboard Productions, Stageit, Stageside Live, TRI Studios, USTREAM, and more.

Bob Weir, founding member of the legendary Grateful Dead and 1994 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee said:

"So, we're looking at some Big Fun here with Forever Festival: live music from around the world, much of it going down at the same time, like the regular festival, without the mud. If you're not into what's in front of you, you go to another stage, only you let your fingers do the walking and stay on the couch, or on the bed, or whatever..."

On August 7, 2013 at 5:00pm PDT, Weir will share his insights as an artist and live digital concert pioneer during a special Weir Here 'Forever Festival' live interview from his state-of-the-art, world-class video streaming venue and recording facility, TRI Studios near San Francisco. Following the interview will be a performance by "Scaring the Children" featuring Weir, Rob Wasserman and Jay Lane, with special guests Jeff Chimenti and Lukas Nelson.

IROCKE also announces the winners of the FOREVER FESTIVAL open audition, including blue-eyed soul singer/songwriter Jamie Lono of NBC's The Voice. "I'm stoked to play in the FOREVER FESTIVAL whose audience spans beyond the usual geographic limitations. This is an opportunity to connect with fans both old and new in a way that I haven't before," said Lono. Other artists selected to perform based on their auditions include V Michaels (USA), Sully (USA), Remolacha Beets (Guatemala), Delite01 (South Africa), and others.
