‘VRChat’ Hosts 24-hour Ball Drop & Live Music to Ring in the New Year

Originally posted on: www.roadtovr.com

Many social VR platforms are playing host to informal New Year’s Eve parties, with users banding together to ring in the new year. VRChat is going the extra mile this year though to put on a 24-hour NYE bash that includes ball drops on the hour and live music so everyone can celebrate.

VRChat’s New Year’s Eve celebration is already in full swing, replete with a Virtual Times Square. The space, which is accessible on PC VR headsets and Oculus Quest, features community-created billboards, 16 community storefronts, and rooftop areas to view the ball drop and (of course) virtual fireworks.

Like any good NYE party, live music is being offered up from a number of artists, which is courtesy of Virtual Bass, a VR festival organizer group with focus on electronic dance music. Check out the schedule below, with showtimes listed in PST:

Jean-Michele Jarre NYE Concert

Electronic music pioneer Jean-Michele Jarre is also hosting a concert in VRChat that is slated to take place December 31st at 11:25 PM CET (local time here).

The concert is set to take place in a virtual recreation of Notre-Dame in Paris. Check out the promo video below.

There, Jarre will preform tracks from his upcoming album ‘Welcome to the Other Side’.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
