Boiler Room is taking the online gig experience to the next level with the launch of the first virtual reality music venue.
Created by VR developer, Inception, the venue is set to go live in 2017, and promises to offer an immersive experience like no other.
“Most of Boiler Room's audience is made up of global online users who tune in to watch music events they can’t attend in person," say Boiler Room via press release. "We’ve always been driven by using technology to showcase the music we care about in the most authentic way we can.”
Boiler Room founder, Blaise Bellville, continues: “Building the first ever music venue born for VR is a big evolution of that, creating immersive online experiences that bring people even closer to what it’s like being at a sweaty rave or an amazing concert half-way across the world."
While being in a sweaty rave is,of course, an experience that will never be beaten, for fans half a world away from their favourite acts this is certainly an exciting development.
