India's First Metaverse Concert Speaks About the Future of Virtual Music Occasion

Imagine you are in a different country, say, Canada, and were attending a Harrdy Sandhu concert in India virtually with thousands of global fans. Virtually attending the event doesn't imply being a part of an online concert amid pandemic but concerts in the Metaverse, which will be much more immersive than live video listening. 

First-ever Metaverse

The founder of Cryptic Entertainments - Litesh Gumber, said how Metaverse music concert integrates elements of NFTs, VR and blockchain-based decentralised worlds. His company organized India's first-ever Metaverse concert on Somnium Space VR with a record show of Sparsh Dangwal, attended by 25-30 people.

In this platform, artists can perform from anywhere as people attend concerts by relaxing at home. Though you will be wearing a VR headset and entering the show alone, you still will be able to interact with the rest of the audience in the shared space or live chats.

Community Ownership

Hollywood music industry is already open to virtual concerts in the virtual platform. Top artists such as Ariana Grande, Marshmello and Travis Scott have performed the same. An important thing to highlight is that the Metaverse provides musicians with a sense of community ownership - a decentralized way with no organization dictating terms.

The VR headset expenses are now a burden for the metaverse concept, followed by the country's ever-lasting issue with internet connectivity. Gumber added, "Not only is the technology at a nascent stage, but users also need to have a high-performance PC, high-quality VR headset and a stable internet connection."
