MelodyVR partners with Wireless Festival for public launch of MelodyVR Mobile App

 

EVR Holdings plc (AIM:EVRH), the leading creator of virtual reality entertainment content and operator of the MelodyVR platform, is pleased to announce that it has entered into partnership with Festival Republic, a division of Live Nation, to broadcast Wireless Festival ("Wireless") live via the MelodyVR platform.

 

Wireless Festival is the leading event for urban music and hip hop, which this year features a number of the world's best-known urban artists including Cardi B, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, Stefflon Don and Migos. MelodyVR will be the exclusive streaming and VR partner for Wireless 2019, live streaming from the festival across the globe, giving an infinite number of fans the best view in the house as the festival takes place between 5 - 7 July 2019. As part of this unique launch event for MelodyVR's mobile app and for the very first time, users will be able to instantly join the Wireless Festival live in VR on their smartphones.

 

Having sold out in record time, Wireless will now offer music lovers an alternative way to experience the incredible live performances at the same time as the audience in London's Finsbury Park itself. With MelodyVR's unique 'Jump Spot' technology placing the mobile and VR audience fully in control, able to move themselves from the photo pit, to the side of stage, to the crowd, all at the touch of a button.

 

Around the festival, the coverage continues in full 360°; capturing the vibes and atmosphere that make Wireless the most contemporary music festival in the UK. In a world first, the backstage area will allow fans to virtually step into a specially created VR space, where they can 'hang out' with some of the biggest names at the festival, in VR.

 

Melvin Benn, MD of Festival Republic said "Wireless Festival has cemented itself as the leader in the festival market, selling out in less than 24 hours the past two years. This festival first collaboration with MelodyVR is taking Wireless to a global audience, giving all fans the chance to be there whilst bringing together ground-breaking technology with a tech savvy music loving audience"

 

Anthony Matchett, CEO and Founder MelodyVR said "Wireless has always been forward thinking and for their audience the connection between technology and music is a perfectly natural one. It's a pleasure to be working together and using this sold-out event as a launch platform for our new mobile app, opening up the exciting potential of VR to a bigger audience than ever before."
