Ever dreamed of being able to fully attend a gig without dealing with the sweat and the people? Your prayers have just been answered.
The Boiler Room is an online community which broadcasts performances from all around the world. In partnership with Inception, an app based on the movie by Nolan, the website is working on launching a VR (virtual reality) Space. In this space anyone across the globe will be able to tune in with a VR headset and experience events without leaving their place, work or bed.
CEO Blaise Bellville said, ” We’ve always been driven by using technology to showcase the music we care about in the most authentic way we can.”
Boiler Room is known for pushing the limits of live music and this VR space is just another step towards the future of music.
