Virtual reality gives music fans chance to be onstage with Kasabian
Using cutting-edge 360 video and audio technology, members of the public are being given the opportunity to experience the best seats in the house at a Kasabian gig. The new project is a collaboration between Visualise, O2, Columbia Records Sony Music UK.
Thanks to the latest in virtual reality and 360 degree sound and vision technology, fans can experience what it’s like to be on stage with the Brit Award-winning band Kasabian.
Virtual reality specialists Visualise partnered with O2 and Columbia Records to film the band at one of their December shows at O2 Academy Brixton. Three viewpoints were captured, giving fans the chance to ‘be’ on stage with the band as well as experience the gig from the press pit and amongst the crowd.
The result is an immersive 360 degree audio and video experience, getting fans closer to the band than ever before.
The online application has been built in HTLM5, allowing users to experience the content on their browser, mobile device or tablet. The gig will also be available to Samsung Gear VR headset owners.
