Announced at the VivaTech event in Paris and MET AMS in Amsterdam today, The David Guetta Experience promises “a mission to save the future of music — in every possible universe”. It features a high-definition 3D avatar of Guetta, who leads players on an epic sci-fi adventure as they battle alongside his superstar friends. And – of course – there’s an exclusive new soundtrack, produced by Guetta to accompany your efforts.

Enjoy the teaser trailer below…

The David Guetta Experience

It’s all been created by Stage11, a technology startup whose goal is to “reimagine music for the metaverse.” Coming from gaming, fashion, and music backgrounds, the team’s work in gameplay, blockchain and mixed reality is enabling artists, brands, creators, and fans to co-create unique digital experiences & content in what they’re calling “a multi-platform music metaverse.”

Guetta says, “Performing in the real world is always such an incredible experience; the music, the stage, the crowds. But to be able to take it to the next level with Stage11 and give my fans the opportunity to join me in the metaverse is literally out of this world.”

Guetta has been extensively mo-capped to create a perfect digital likeness of the star

Stage11’s Co-Founder and CEO Jonathan Belolo says, “Working with David Guetta and friends on this journey to re-invent music for the metaverse has been special. Photorealistic, interactive, game-like music events are just around the corner, it’s very exciting. Once in a generation the way we interact with music is revolutionised. There was radio, TV, MP3s, YouTube, and now with Stage11, we get to play a role in the next iteration of music, enhanced and developed for the metaverse. We can’t wait to show you what we have been working on.”
