With few places allowing the clubbing scene to continue DJ’s have been branching out, with one area being virtual reality (VR) entertainment. During the summer legendary DJ Carl Cox was one of the myriad artists performing a Sansar’s Lost Horizon festival. Now social platform Sensorium Galaxy has announced he’ll be hosting a series of exclusive performances in 2021.
During his career, Cox has headlined some of the world’s biggest festivals including Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland and Glastonbury. His DJ sets will be held in PRISM World, a dedicated location to music concerts and festivals inside Sensorium Galaxy.
PRISM was developed in collaboration with Yann Pissenem, the creator of clubs Ushuaïa Ibiza and Hï Ibiza, both of which have been awarded “The World’s Best Club” by the International Nightlife Association.
“I am excited to join Sensorium Galaxy in taking communication and entertainment to the next level. Being a part of their vision is going to be a lot of fun. This immersive platform allows you to experience things and share special moments with other people no matter where they are,” Cox said in a statement. “Sensorium Galaxy is going to revolutionise how people socialize while overcoming the current limitations on how we enjoy music and the arts online, giving everyone a chance to connect in a much more meaningful way.”
“PRISM will allow Sensorium users to experience activities and emotions that are impossible in real life,” Pissenem adds. “Carl Cox is an icon of the electronic music scene, an artist constantly striving for progress. He understands the vast opportunities offered by new technologies, including VR, for building enhanced entertainment platforms and a new generation communication tools that allow artists to scale their creativity, whilst engaging with their fans on a whole new level”
Cox won’t be the only international DJ performing at PRISM. DJ and producer David Guetta will also be joining the lineup.
