Livestream: Ways to View

All concerts will be streamed to our website at bowdoinfestival.org/festivalive, and on our Facebook and YouTube channels.

Internet Requirements: We recommend using a wired ethernet internet connection for the best experience, or a strong, stable Wi-Fi connection and/or cellular data. Check the speed and strength of your Wi-Fi at speedtest.net; connections of at least 20 mbps (download) and 10 mbps (upload) are best.

If you are having trouble viewing a livestream, it’s possible the stream is at a bitrate higher than your connection can handle. Check your download speed at http://www.speedtest.net/.
