The Glitch Mob To Perform Live In VR For The First Time

Fans can expect a never-before-heard set, virtual pyrotechnics, and zero gravity.

LA-based electronic music trio The Glitch Mob will make their VR debut tomorrow afternoon (5PM PT/8PM ET) when they perform a live 1-hour set on VR social platform Sansar.

According to the ticket page: Be there when the Mob plays every city in a single night in Sansar – complete with a custom set, breathtaking virtual pyrotechnics, and yes: zero gravity! Your chance to not only see them perform live, but to interact with them one-on-one in an out-of-this-world virtual venue that’s unlike anything you could expect from a real life tour.

Tickets are free for registered Sansar users, though space is limited so you’ll want to reserve your spot sooner than later. There’s also a VIP pass that includes a one-on-one VR meet-and-greet with the group; make sure to enterSPECIAL FAN CODE” during checkout to avoid the semi-outrageous and totally real fee of $9999999.

While tomorrows event will mark the groups first live performance in a virtual space, it’s far from their first time working with VR technology. In June of last year, the electronic music pioneers released a psychedelic VR music experience accompanied by a 20-minute custom mix of their latest album, See Without Eyes. Powered by the social music festival platform TheWaveVR, fans were able to interact with the visually-captivating experience, as well as each other, as they ventured deep into an intergalactic acid trip that blended powerful electronic music with mesmerizing abstract visuals.

Earlier this month Sansar announced a collaboration with major EDM music label Monstercat to host a series of live performances featuring the labels stacked lineup of electronic musicians.

Sansar is available free on all major PC VR platforms, including SteamVR, Oculus, Windows Mixed Reality, and standard desktop.
