What’s unique about the MTV’s Wonderland is that not only will audiences get up-close and personal with live performances, but also MTV is providing content on multiple social platforms, says the network. MTV’s Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram accounts will serve behind-the-scenes and live-performance coverage on the same night as the show airs so that viewers can get an immersive point of view.

Wonderland debuts on MTV for its first 10-episode season on September 15.
