Coachella Plans VR Experience; Selects NEP for Trucks, Technical Support
Coachella continues its bid to serve up its diverse sonic entree with three channels of select performances set to stream via YouTube, as well as a new live VR experience.
In addition to its three live streams, Coachella organizers have promised those with virtual reality headsets such as Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, and others a special experience via the Coachella VR app. Alongside recorded footage, and the ability to virtually tour the festival grounds, the app’s partner, Vantage.tv, promises high quality live streams of select festival performances — though they will likely be less numerous than the three non-VR channels.
The NEP Festivals team will be on site with Platinum, Mercury, Blues, and ST3, marking the company’s 10th year in a row supplying trucks/technical support to one of North Americas’ premier festivals.
A full schedule of streamable acts will be available on the Coachella website as the event draws closer. The three-day first weekend of Coachella begins this Friday at 3:30 p.m. PST, and extends through the end of day Sunday.
