Boiler Room has teamed up with “leading provider of 360 and VR entertainment content” Inception to create the world’s first virtual reality music venue, according to Dazed. In development right now, the new VR venue is set to launch in 2017, with unique events curated by Boiler Room and Inception that viewers will be able to access from anywhere in the world.
Boiler Room has been filming club experiences across the world for years and is looking to make the experience even more immersive and more universal. In a press release, the company’s CEO Blaise Bellville said: “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.”
