Live stream behemoth Boiler Room are stepping into the 21st Century with a new virtual reality venue.
Launching in early 2017, the venue is designed to film and stream shows in virtual reality allowing for a space the company can host its events in one communal space and in real time. Having partnered with vR company Inception, an entertainment company dedicated exclusively to the virtual space, will deisgn the venue.
In their official press release, Boiler Room says,
“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. We’ve always been driven by using technology to showcase the music we care about in the most authentic way we can.”
With Boiler Room’s founder Blaise Bellville going on,
“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.”
