IBS-Palooza will allow multiple stations to share and play each other's live content. This is expected to become an annual event on the IBS-SRN. IBS-Palooza will be available online from each participating school's website as well at WIBS and Apple's Itunes Radio, College Radio category; Sept. 19-21, 2008.

Backbone Networks provides the steaming capability to IBS-SRN. Most bands will be performing live at their host school's campus while live on the air, and some schools will combine their efforts to create a larger live concert event.
