Island Life 2017 – hundreds of artists, label staff and VIPs try MelodyVR

MelodyVR hosts The Shack at Island Record’s VIP bash

We’ve just returned from sunny Osea Island, where we showed MelodyVR to hundreds of managers, label execs, artists, fans and VIP guests of Island Records.

Guests tried out an interactive album sampler created with Oh Wonder; and live experiences with Youngr (below), Sigrid and Aquilo.

Island Records’ one-day escape to the highly exclusive Osea Island has become a summer fixture for the UK music industry. As well the chance to try MelodyVR for the first time, guests were treated to showcase performances; street food and cocktails; an all-day pool party; and the chance to play tennis with Sean Paul (of course).

Inside The Shack, we demonstrated MelodyVR across five Oculus Rift stations. While it was great to see people experiencing MelodyVR together, and to hear some great feedback about the app; it was truly special to see the VR music experiences spark so many interesting, creative conversations amongst Island Life guests. We’re looking forward to continuing those conversations back on the mainland!

A big thank you to everyone that dropped in, and to Island Records for hosting us on Osea.
