Description: Have you attended a music festival or concert recently? If so, you've probably noticed an increase in technology and smart phones to provide a more enjoyable experience during the event.  This article from Billboard details how technology will continue to shape the future of music events and includes two engaging interactive images that increase the time readers spend within the article.  Unlock an interactive map that previews the use of VR chill out tents, wired wearables, and location-based tips at events.  Also, learn more about the first smart guitar via an interactive graphic.

Tip: Using animated GIFs as hotspot icons is a great strategy for capturing the attention of your readers.  The pulsing info icons used by Billboard drives curiosity within readers and guides them to engage with the extra content. This strategy will increase click-throughs and time spent from your interactive projects.  Read this blog post for 3 ways to use GIFs in ThingLinks
