Do you often look beyond traditional live shows to connect with your favorite artist? Well, the team behind Glastonbury’s Shangri-La experience is all set to deliver the music festival of the future. For its 11th incarnation, and in response to the global pandemic, Shangri-La is turning into what the team claims to be the world’s largest virtual reality festival called Lost Horizon.
Launched in partnership with Sansar and VR Jam, Lost Horizon is scheduled to take place on July 3-4. The festival is said to open up a new realm of possibilities for artists and fans – filled with wild dancefloors, secret headliners, hidden venues and a visual feast of art and performance.
Replicating real-life attractions from Shangri-La, including the Gas Tower, Freedom and SHITV stages, Sansar will premiere their mobile platform with multiple camera angles from each stage, allowing the viewer to switch between performances.
The global lineup will include performances from Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and more at the Gas Tower, with additional acts (including Coldcut, A.Skillz, Krafty Kutz, Henge, Alabama 3 and My Baby) appearing on the Freedom Stage.
A new stage, Nomad, will celebrate the rich history of underground UK culture and feature artists from drum-and-bass labels like Hospitality, Critical Records, Born on Road, Run Tings Records and more.
One can avail the tickets for the event at sansar.com/losthorizon, which will be streamed live via Beatport and other streaming partners.
