Dubstep producer Xilent has performed the first fully live immersive VR concert. The Monstercat affiliate performed live via the VRJAM, a platform app for immersive VR and augmented reality and performances. Using custom-built CGI content, VRJAM and Xilent created a live DJ set for fans to watch inside a virtual nightclub environment, streamed via Agora. It's a glimpse into the potential future of live performance – fans were invited to participate via a custom-built app that works with any VR headset.
Once you're in, you're visible to other participants via a dancing avatar on the dancefloor. Watch the video below to catch a glimpse of the performance.
Daft Punk's 'One More Time' was recently turned into a virtual reality rave – find out more about that here.
