How Lost Horizon is Bringing the VR Music Experience to the Forefront

Jun 24, 2020 | AR & VR | 0 comments

The Covid-19 pandemic means that 2020 has been a bit of shit show for events organizers. Obviously, music festivals, sporting events, and more, have been cancelled due to public health concerns, but it does mean that many of us can’t get our fix. However, some events organizers are making do, and changing the landscape of music festivals forever. Here’s how Lost Horizon is bringing the VR music experience to the forefront. 

Lost Horizon is bringing the VR music experience

What is Lost Horizon? 

Glastonbury’s Shangri-La event organizers have put together a brand new virtual reality music festival called Lost Horizon. This isn’t some low caliber nonsense either, this VR festival is set to be pretty damn epic (and you don’t have to deal with the throngs of teenagers tweaking either). 

Lost Horizon is being described as “the world’s largest VR music and arts festival”. It’s free to attend, and you don’t have to deal with mud, rain, or drunk people causing trouble. I mean, idyllic right? 

Lost Horizon has a pretty stellar DJ line-up sorted for you, plus visual artists will be presenting some of their work in the VR environment. 

Even better is that all of the money raised from the festival will go towards The Big Issue and Amnesty International. So, it is free to attend but you can choose to buy a premium pass for $10, which will give you access to exclusive art, a virtual shirt from Instruct Studio (because who wants to be improperly dressed in VR?), and a whole lot more. 

If you don’t want to buy a ticket, consider donating at some point during the festival’s duration. 

Who is Playing Lost Horizon? 

Lost Horizon is scheduled for the weekend of 3 and 4 July, and it’ll take place daily between 15:00 and 3:00 +1 BST (UK). 

Lost Horizon’s organizers truly did not come to mess around. The line-up is pretty spectacular and includes Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Peggy Gou, and more (a lot more). 

This isn’t a pre-recorded event either. The organizers say: “recorded using green screen technology, artists can perform inside the virtual world as themselves or as a bespoke avatar. Inside this multiverse you can meet with your friends and make new ones, chat, dance and explore together, blag your way backstage or find a shady corner to hang out in.”

Lost Horizons is set to take place over a full weekend and four different stages. With 50 performances, you’re set for one major sesh. 

How to Watch Lost Horizon

 

If you want to see how Lost Horizon is bringing the VR music experience to the forefront, you’ll have to tune in yourself. 

Obviously you can use a VR headset. The festival supports all PC-powered headsets, like Oculus Rift and HTC VIve (apparently Mac is “coming soon”). To do so, you have to sign up and download the Sansar app, and all participants must be 13 or older. 

Alternatively, you can watch the festival by streaming it on your cell phone (with a separate app launching on 26 June), or via Twitch and Beatport. 

Tune Into the Lost Horizon Festival For a Seriously Good Time

If you want to see how Lost Horizon is bringing the VR music experience to the forefront, you should attend it yourself over the 3rd and 4th of July 2020. Covid-19 doesn’t mean we can’t have a good time, it just means that we’ll have to do it from the comfort of our homes.
