The merge has begun. Metaverse is ready to channel real life into a digital vessel. Founders of the future-forward concept, VISIV clocked its opening and decided to jump straight into it with a visionary idea: an event combining world-class technology and techno. The future is now. We’ll embody it by emerging into a one-night-only dance-filled dimension ruled by the hottest names on the electronic scene: Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Blawan, Helena Hauff, DVS1, Rodhad, Dasha Rush and Bambounou. All you need is the will to transcend the physical and a healthy dose of hedonism.
On March 19th, VISIV will host their debut event in Europe’s biggest indoor arena, Paris La Défense, and welcome visitors from the SXSW Texas conference to join via a portal to the metaverse. On top of that, exclusively for the show, they’ve created three types of NFTs. You can collectively own one of the performing artists, VISIV’s Deadly Skull or a part of the experience with a few secret bonuses.
“We are building in a way that will be useful for any future VISIV events and other events by providing building blocks for the entire industry. They can then be reused to recreate the same high-end experience, bringing enthusiasts closer together globally in unique ways coupled with completely new opportunities for artists, event organizers and crowds.” says founder Axel Picodot.
We’ve gathered and analysed the digital traces scattered by VISIV so far. The results are clear: it’s an event not to miss. If you need some more convincing, here’s why you need to be there…
Have you ever been to an event hosted at the same time in two different dimensions? Us neither. When metaverse was born not such a long time ago, it made a lot of buzz and, in the mainstream area, went silent. It’s time to see what’s the noise all about. Obviously, there’s no better place to do it than at a music event. From day-one techno has been all about innovation and breaking boundaries. It’s going to be a privilege to experience revolution first-hand. Hurry up, it won’t wait long.
If you manage to get one electronic music pioneer in the house, great tech-heads turnup is guaranteed. VISIV wants their venue to explode throwing so many iconic names into one bigger-than-life DJ melting pot. Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Blawan, Helena Hauff, DVS1, Rodhad, Dasha Rush and Bambounou will make sure to shake you up so hard that you’d be talking to your friends about what happened for the next five weeks. On repeat.
It’s never been easy to be an artist and 2022 is no exception. That’s why, whenever there’s a chance, we need to show up for those who keep us sane and steady through life’s worse curves. VISIV is both a new visionary idea with the power to change our perception of event space and a platform featuring and supporting (NFTs will offer an additional revenue stream for artists) most edge-cutting creatives.
Art and technology have been involved in a heated affair for centuries now. Though, this decade, dah even the last couple of months, feel like a breakthrough. From CGI catwalks or music videos, digital events to implanting artificial senses for the sake of creation [can link the interview with Neil and Moon], we’re speedlighting into the future 2.0. If you want to take a peek at what version of it may look like, VISIV grants you an exclusive pass.
