The virtual BEYOND series will feature live avatar performances from artists such as Speaker Honey, Rinzen, Marbs, SOHMI, Worthy, and more.
Beatport has teamed up with Wave, the leader in interactive virtual entertainment experiences, for a collaborative virtual performance series that will bring more immersive and interactive experiences to electronic music fans. Through Wave’s cutting-edge broadcast and performance technology, the BEYOND series will transform its fantastic lineup of talented DJ/producers into digital avatars, performing live in a unique virtual world and interacting with fans in real-time.
Throughout the BEYOND series, fans will have the opportunity to interact with their favorite DJs like never before — participating in live Q&A, voting on virtual scene changes, and even seeing themselves featured in the show. Fans can also influence the live event, offering virtual gifts throughout the show that artists can incorporate into their sets to create a truly collaborative experience.
Our third act SOHMI will perform on Thursday, June 3rd, and the series will continue throughout the Summer. Other artists spotlighted throughout the ten-show series include Durante, Haywyre, Marbs, Reid Speed, VNSSA, Worthy, and more.
Fans can go to wave.watch/beatport and RSVP to the SOHMI show now.
Ahead of his show, Rinzen, stated, “We are experiencing a rare, liminal moment in history where the threshold between physical and virtual performance is being definitively crossed. I am amazed by the new technology I am seeing from companies like Wave and honored to be part of this new partnership with Beatport.”
Speaking about her upcoming Wave performance, Beatport NEXT artist, VNSSA, said, “Streaming and online concerts have been bringing people around the world together, and it’s amazing to watch all of this new technology unfold. I think the Waves with Beatport could be a real change in the way we experience live music and propel us into a fresh future of concert streaming.”
