Every creator can now use live video to connect with backers. Stream from your studio, rehearsal space, or wherever you work. Streams integrate seamlessly into your project page. Just a few clicks and you’re live.
Made to bring communities closer together.
Kickstarter Live was built for personal interaction. Viewers can ask questions, chat with the host, or pledge to the project right from the live broadcast.
A new stage for your work and process.
Creators are using Kickstarter Live for musical performances, cooking shows, product demos, game demos, rehearsals, and much more. It brings the creative process into the light and inspires new backers to join the fun.
Preview your newest songs in an exclusive performance
Celebrate the final hours of your project with a countdown
Invite collaborators to be co-hosts.
You can have up to four people broadcasting at a time — just be sure to test the live stream with everyone involved before the broadcast date.
Promote your live stream beforehand.
Tell people about your upcoming event in project updates, social media channels, newsletters, and any other outlets you use to communicate with your community.
Test your setup in advance.
Create a test live stream with the same equipment you’ll be using for your broadcast to make sure everything is golden before you go live.
Authenticity and transparency are great ways to connect with your audience, inspire confidence in your backers, and invite prospective backers into the fold.
Integrate with Facebook.
Broadcast to Facebook simultaneously (beta) so viewers can watch live on Facebook too. Afterwards, your stream will automatically become a video on your page once the event is over. If you don't stream to Facebook, you can still share the replay link or upload the video file directly to Facebook as well.
Let people know about future broadcasts.
Before your live stream ends, share links to upcoming broadcasts and ask people to subscribe to stay in the loop.
