AceShowbiz –The Killers and Khalid are to headline the world’s first immersive virtual music festival experience as part of this year’s Splendour in the Grass celebrations.
Splendour XR, which is scheduled for July 24 and 25, will also feature sets from Chvrches, Tash Sultana, Band of Horses, Charli XCX, Vance Joy, and Grimes. Also joining them are the likes of Denzel Curry, Phoebe Bridgers, Little Simz and The Avalanches among others.
A press release about the show reads, “Punters can dive into Splendour XR from the comfort of their couch and watch with family and friends from across the globe or purchase an XR Party Pack and create their own Splendour XR house party.”
“Build your virtual self and move through an imaginatively embellished but faithful recreation of Splendour’s Byron Bay venue. And just like Splendour IRL, you’ll create your own schedule, travel from stage to stage to watch your favorite artists and all while virtually meeting up and partying with your mates along the way.”
Co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco have also shared their thoughts on the virtual show. “We could not be more excited about Splendour XR and the opportunity to take the Splendour goodness online to our existing community and also to new audiences around the globe,” the pair stated.
There will also be a Global Village and Little Splendour will offer something for the kids.
Splendour XR has been created in collaboration with San Francisco, California based platform developers Sansar, the world market leaders in social virtual reality.
Fans can purchase tickets on Splendour XR website.
