Additionally, in each artist's premiere week, the Virgin Mobile Live Facebook page will host an exclusive interview with the band conducted by Virgin Mobile Live's DJ and Music Supervisor, Abbey Braden about how they were able to build their social fan bases so successfully. The bands will also be featured on Virgin Mobile Live 2.0, Virgin Mobile's streaming music station available on all Android devices via the Android Market.
