Today, Jean-Michel Jarre and VRrOOm invite you to attend a memorable virtual concert inside Notre-Dame in Paris!
As Tony Vitillo, aka the Skarred Ghost says, 'the show will be pretty unique, and we are proud to say that it will actually be in Virtual Reality! VR is not used just as a marketing term: here the concert is not just a CGI video, but a full 3D experience that you will be able to enjoy inside VRChat with other people from the community! This way if you feel alone during New Year’s Eve and you can’t see other people or have a party because of the lockdown, you can have a big party with other people from all over the world in VR.'
Here are some tips to join the show seamlessly in VR:
- Download the VRChat app on Steam, Oculus or Viveport to watch the concert in virtual reality on all PC VR headsets, Oculus Quest and Quest 2 + link cable, or simply via PC
Once in VRChat, check the 'NOTRE-DAME CONCERT' icon in the WORLDS menu to access the concert. Attention, the world will be activated on December 31 at 11:23pm CET only (December 31 at 2:23pm PST).
Quest and Quest 2 users who are not equipped with the link cable will be able to access a lighter version of the concert!
REPLAYS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ALL FOR 24 HOURS!
