I also think that certain styles of music are more forgiving than others for this kind of thing. Unfortunately because of the physics involved it can't be totally solved for every use case by technology improvements, though the increased availability of fiber based internet service will help somewhat for more localized use.
I agree that music style, tempo and rhythmic complexity influence the success factor. You can see a video recap of JamKazam's festival here. The fourth band in particular (Before the Calm) is a great performance example.
