Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, LiveFrom, Mativision, Metropolis Studios, Sonosphere, Virgin Media O2 and Warner Music Group – to create the world’s first 5G powered hybrid immersive festival including live and remotely collaborating artists and audiences.
The 5G Festival project explores how 5G and virtual and augmented reality can help artists and producers write, rehearse and collaborate remotely together in real time. It’s also examining how audiences at home and in-venue can experience new types of performances.
