Friday’s experience is the first from new partnership between Wave and Pico

Wave, the virtual entertainment company that’s focused on bringing people together has partnered with Pico, a leading VR company with independent innovation and R&D capabilities to launch a premiere virtual concert event titled The Calvin Harris Experience.

The event will take place on January 13th at 8:00 PM GMT. Fans can become a part of the immersive 3D experience in all markets across Europe and Asia – where Pico’s consumer headsets are also available including Southeast Asia, Korea, Europe, and Japan.

Adam Arrigo, CEO of Wave said, “Pico is one of the most innovative VR companies in the world, and shares our vision for creating the most immersive experiences for fans and artists. Through our partnership, we look forward to continuing to push the envelope in creating the most cutting-edge virtual music experiences.”

Viewers will also get exclusive access to an extended version of the concert while parts of the premiere event will also be broadcast to TikTok LIVE.

Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum selling DJ-Producer Calvin Harris will kick off the partnership with The Calvin Harris Experience that’ll take fans on an immersive 3D concert musical journey through the producer’s virtual universe. Fans will experience a metaverse party filled with audio-reactive visuals in a nature-inspired luminous world.

“I’m so excited to kick off such an innovative music series with Wave, Pico, and TikTok and can’t wait for fans to experience my first-ever virtual concert,” said Calvin.

Calvin will be performing live as a virtual avatar and fans can expect to hear the DJ’s setlist of dance music including his chart-topping global hits. Fans can also explore Calvin’s world as avatars and party together where they’ll be a few feet away from Calvin as he performs in the metaverse.

Mayan Scharf, Head of Content Business Development, at PICO commented, “Pico is focused on providing premium virtual experiences to our users around the world. Starting with Calvin Harris, PICO and Wave are excited to bring music lovers a new way to connect with their favourite artists from wherever they choose to tune in.”
