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.
