In virtual reality you’re not just watching the action unfold, you’re part of it. VR transports you inside new realities and makes you feel like you’re actually there – completely surrounded by the experience.
You need a VR headset to get into virtual reality.
The virtual reality headset creates the illusion of a life-like, three-dimensional world in which you can move around, make choices and interact with your surroundings.
AR (or augmented reality) superimposes computer-generated images onto a real-world view, while VR transports you to a new world altogether.
It’s unlikely to. Some people report feelings of mild nausea with VR experiences involving lots of motion. But in an experience like MelodyVR – where you control how and when you move – there’s not much to worry about.
MelodyVR is a completely new way to experience music. We’ll get you into sold-out gigs, transport you to far-flung festivals and show you secret, VIP performances – all in stunning virtual reality.
You’ll find a huge line-up of live Shows in our app, brought to you from sold-out stadiums and festival stages, intimate venues and underground clubs.
You’ll also find exclusive, only-in-VR Originals – including secret gigs, VIP sessions and interactive worlds.
Finally, explore our Journeys, specially curated VR playlists to suit any mood.
With MelodyVR, you’re completely in control. You can choose what you see and where you stand in a venue – whether that’s down the front, deep in the crowd, or even up with the band onstage.
To get MelodyVR you’ll need an Oculus Go or Samsung Gear VR virtual reality headset. If you’ve got one of these, go to Get MelodyVR, download our app for free and start exploring our line-up of performances. You’ll need to have a wifi connection for MelodyVR to work.
