Despite Glastonbury Festival's cancellation this year, organizers behind the event's Shangri-La after-hours area have announced a new virtual event set to take place this summer.
Lost Horizon is a forthcoming two-day event that will feature over fifty performances across four stages. With the help of Sansar and VR Jam, Lost Horizon will replicate three of Shangri-La's real-life attractions: The Gas Tower, Freedom Stage, and SHITV. In bringing the real-world environment to the virtual realm, Lost Horizon is aiming to become "the world's largest independent music and arts festival in virtual reality."
The event's lineup is an attention-grabbing slate of dance music icons, including Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Peggy Gou and Skream, just to name a few. In the spirit of its exploratory virtual programming, the event additionally promises attendees additional secret headliners, which are still waiting to be discovered.
Fans can catch a full broadcast of Lost Horizon on YouTube and Twitch. Those intent on exploring the virtual world from their PC desktop must sign up for a free ticket to the show. Finally, VR users will need to download the Sansar app to their device in order to experience the event.
