Isle of Wight Festival 2019 has revealed that it has teamed up with The Beatles Story, Liverpool to premiere an immersive virtual reality experience dedicated to The Beatles.
Christened ‘Become The Beatles’, an official press release stated that the experience “will allow fans the opportunity to learn more about the Fab Four and witness Beatlemania through the eyes of John, Paul, George and Ringo.”
The experience will be available across the Festival weekend (June 13 - 16) in Strawberry Fields and will give fans the chance to virtually perform Twist And Shout live in front of screaming fans on stage.
Speaking about the launch, Diane Glover, marketing manager at The Beatles Story, said: “We are very excited to be launching our new virtual reality experience at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival on the anniversary of The Beatles’ visit there in the summer of ’69. What better way to celebrate this occasion by giving festival-goers the chance to virtually become one of The Beatles, playing to an audience of adoring fans on our award-winning attraction’s replica Cavern Stage.”
The Isle of Wight Festival takes place 13 - 16 June at Seaclose Park, Newport. Among the acts scheduled to play are Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, George Ezra, Biffy Clyro, Fatboy Slim, Madness, Hacienda Classical, James and Rick Astley.
