Groundbreaking virtual reality music platform MelodyVR is now available in the UK and US.
The app offers music fans immersive performances of the likes of The Chainsmokers, Kiss, Wiz Khalifa and Bebe Rexha, created with multiple vantage points, to give fans control over what they see and where they stand.
Currently available via Oculus Go and Samsung GearVR devices, it gives users a selection of pre-recorded performances, original content and curated journeys to choose from and purchase.
“MelodyVR was founded to deliver new and amazing ways for music fans to connect with the artists they love. We’re thrilled to have launched our platform in the US and the UK and we look forward to launching globally over the coming months,” said MelodyVR founder and CEO Anthony Matchett. “We’re hugely excited to provide music fans across-the-globe with amazing, immersive VR performances from the world’s most recognisable and loved artists.”
MelodyVR, which has teamed up with artists such as 2 Chainz, Rag‘N’Bone Man and Niall Horan, will live stream concerts via VR and offer virtual tickets to sold-out shows in the coming months.
With parent company EVR Holdings, it has announced a fundraise of $30 million (£22m), taking total funding to over $70m to-date. The additional capital raised today will be used to fuel corporate expansion globally and to launch the MelodyVR product in additional international markets.
