VRLIVE 360 DEGREE STREAM FROM LEVITATION

LEVITATION is proud to announce a partnership with virtual reality live-streaming company VRLIVE to stream #Levitation2016 as a 360-degree live virtual reality experience!

Fans from all over the world will be able to enjoy the festival in a unique, immersive experience from the comfort of their homes via the web. For a subscription fee of $20, viewers can stream a weekend full of shows from multiple stages at LEVITATION, including performances from Animal Collective, Courtney Barnett, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, Ty Segall & The Muggers, Allah Las, Shabazz Palaces, King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard and over 30 more artists, with additional stream confirmations and a full schedule coming later in the week.

You can use almost any device to enjoy the experience, but we recommend you use a VR headset for the most immersive expereince. You can convert your mobile device with a cardboard headset (pictured above), which can be mailed to you in time for the stream this weekend, or you can just go out and buy one – these converters are now widely available in stores!

We’ve wanted to live stream the festival for years, each year a large number of people come in from all over the world, but we know many more are unable to make the trip and experience the festival. The fact that we’ll be doing our first stream in 360 VR is unreal, we’re really excited to be able to bring Levitation to the world this weekend!
