Boiler Room has built an audience of millions of people around the world who tune in to watch music events they can’t be at in person. Broadcasts started via a webcam, with virtual reality offering the biggest evolution yet of Boiler Room’s ability to give fans a truly immersive experience and transport them right into the heart of an event.Through the partnership, Boiler Room will be able to create an interactive world on the Inception platform that reflects and builds on the experience of being at a Boiler Room show in the flesh.

With the new made-for-VR venue, Inception and Boiler Room will create music content that’s conceptualized, designed and filmed with VR in mind, allowing artists to create a dynamic and interactive experience that goes far beyond passive 360° viewing.

Boiler Room and Inception’s new London venue provides a home for any musical artist, visual artist or other creator to build amazing VR experiences for the masses.

“We’ve always been driven by using technology to showcase the music we care about and give fans all around the world an authentic experience of the events and scenes they can’t be part of in person.” said Blaise Bellville, Founder and CEO of Boiler Room. “Building the first ever music venue born for VR is a big evolution of that, creating immersive online experiences that bring people even closer to what it’s like being at a sweaty rave or an amazing concert half-way across the world."

“Our goal is to bring immersive experiences to life by providing premium VR content to users worldwide,” said Benny Arbel, CEO and Co-founder of Inception. “Boiler Room’s Born for VR venue will be the definition of immersive - everything about this site will be meticulously planned and constructed to be a dream room for any artist to create the VR show of a lifetime.”
