What is Moshcam?
If you’ve ever loved live music, you will love Moshcam.
Moshcam professionally films concerts in full HD with high-quality mastered audio, in conjunction with artists and venues around the world, and streams them straight to you, on demand, for free.
Moshcam’s mission is to be the global home of high quality live music video: a site for live music fans, created by live music fans. We distribute our concerts via our website, our YouTube channel and our iOS and Android apps. So, you can access high quality, professionally shot live footage wherever you are, whenever you want.
Moshcam looks to capture the world’s best artists wherever they happen to be – we shoot in many places around the world, but we focus on Sydney, London, New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC. We’ve filmed such artists as Slash, Mayday Parade, A$AP Rocky, Major Lazer, Royal Blood, Alexisonfire, Karnivool, Emilie Autumn, Bloc Party, Blondie, The Pretenders, Alice Cooper, Megadeth, Flogging Molly, The Living End, and many, many more. You can also watch some pretty hilarious interviews, check out some epic live shots and catch up on the latest live music news over on our blog.
What is the Moshcam Story?
Way back in 2007, three friends – Paul Hannigan, John Reddin and Elia Eliades – met in their local pub and bonded over their love of great live music. Wistfully remembering their best all time gigs (OK, outdoing each other), and lamenting the fact that so much live music perfection is alive and then gone in 90 minutes, it soon became apparent that they needed to find a way to capture the brilliance of a great live concert. Thus the idea of Moshcam was born, and that very same year we recorded our very first live concert video… somebody that we used to know: Gotye!*
Since those early days, Moshcam has captured more than 1,500 full-length live concert videos, interviews and features, which reach millions of live music fans across the globe every month. From our small beginnings in inner Sydney, Australia, to crews all around the world, Moshcam consistently captures the very best live performances from the world’s leading and up and coming artists.
*Sadly for all of us, the contract for the Gotye show ended in 2012 so we can no longer show you his concert. But you can still see his work on a platform called YouTube, where he’s apparently doing quite well.
