What is a metaverse concert?
First things first – what exactly is a metaverse concert? A metaverse concert – or a virtual concert – is a performance that takes place in a virtual world. During a virtual concert, the artist is transformed into an avatar and performs on a virtual stage, to fans who are also represented as avatars.
It’s a good way of reaching fans who might not be able to attend a real-life concert. It’s also an excellent way to utilise resources, as you’re reaching thousands of fans without travelling.
Metaverse concerts are quickly gaining ground. Artists such as Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, BTS and Travis Scott have all hosted metaverse concerts. MTV has recently added a new metaverse concert category at the 2022 edition of the MTV Awards. Therefore, it’s safe to say that this is just the beginning for metaverse concerts.
About the “Into The Metaverse” competition
The Into The Metaverse Competition will give one winner the chance to perform at their own live metaverse and IRL concert using Condense’s volumetric 3D capture technology. Unlike other metaverse concerts that use pre-rendered graphics and audio, Condense will capture the winning artist live and reflect what the artist is doing in real-time, in the metaverse.
In addition to metaverse-related prizes, the winner will receive $500 worth of studio credit at any PIRATE.com studio in the world. Furthermore, they will get exclusive access to AmplifyLive’s groundbreaking Web3 technology. This will enable them to earn recurring revenue from their concert on an ongoing basis, as well as a coordinated marketing campaign.
What’s more, we’ll cover travel and accommodation from any country in the world to the metaverse concert capture and live show in Bristol. You’ll also be featured in our event-related content. This includes a mini-documentary, PR and marketing campaign to put your music in front of the right audience.
