Who Killed Summer? Episode 9
It's time for episode 9 of Who Killed Summer? and in this episode, the crew hits the Relentless Boardmasters festival! (Warning: contains mature content that may not be suitable for children)
Check out the Video for a sneak peak, and if you're not familiar with the show, visit the official Web site to see previous episodes and b-roll video clips. You can also use the map on the site to follow the course of the crew and check out the pictures they take as they go.
The contestants are six young music lovers with one dream - to spend a summer on the road around Europe touring the festivals that include Benicassim, Global Gathering, Relentless Boardmasters and Bloom Festival. The show has a reality show feel, with the contestants thrown together for the first time for their first festival. But there's a twist - one of them will be killed. That's right. It's a reality TV murder mystery.
Better still - this "reality" show is driven in a whole new way using social media to keep it exciting. Each of the contestants has a blog on the site. You're also encouraged to follow the crew on Twitter (follow their every move!), Facebook (interact with the contestants!), Flickr (check out the pictures taken on their nine-week-long whirlwind of music festivals!) and YouTube (watch all the episodes and extras!) to keep up with every bit of the action. Users in the UK, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Denmark can even download a mobile app for their phone to receive each episode and more.
If you're into reality shows, this new, multi-platform online reality drama takes the concept to a whole new level!
