Hardwell to host EDM’s first-ever live-streaming performance in virtual reality
Hardwell has teamed up with companies Littlstar and LeaseWeb to break new ground in EDM territory: virtual reality (VR) live-streaming. His upcoming performance on March 16 at Nikki Beach during Miami Music Week will be filmed using state-of-the-art cameras which capture 360° footage to allow fans to feel as if they’re experiencing the event in person. With cameras situated behind Hardwell, those watching will be able to view the set from his perspective.
Hardwell has been quite active as of late; he recently premiered his new single “Mad World” on his home country’s hit show The Voice of Holland, and also earned acclaim for his efforts in raising enough money with his “World’s Biggest Guestlist” to benefit 18,000 children in India. His VR set will be accessible for viewing for anyone using iOS, Android, or their own VR headsets, while videos from the event will be posted on Littlstar’s website.
