The world’s leading electronic dance music festival – Tomorrowland – has announced that NFT artist – Ape Rave Club – will headline this year’s festival with a debut performance on the main stage on July 24. The event will mark the first live performance by an NFT artist at a major music festival. Ape Rave Club, a digital artist emerging from the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection, will make their first live appearance at the most significant stage in the electronic dance music scene – the iconic main stage of Tomorrowland. The festival is expected to attract 600,000 live attendees and millions of more people across the globe via live stream. Ape Rave Club’s performance will be a first-of-its-kind visual experience that fuses the digital and physical worlds for audiences in an all-new way.
Born on the blockchain, Ape Rave Club plans to release original crypto-native music via NFT platforms, and aims to be one of the first decentralized artists in the music industry. This means fans will be able to govern elements like artistic direction and even share ownership in Ape Rave Club alongside the broader community. Music will also be shared via traditional streaming platforms. In 2020, Tomorrowland premiered their digital festival, Tomorrowland Around The World. The spectacular two-day interactive event brought together the biggest names in electronic dance music and the best technologies in 3D design, video production, and special effects. Now, they continue to build out this universe of experiences by merging the worlds of real-life and the metaverse in collaboration with Ape Rave Club. By embracing the social and technological movement, Tomorrowland opens the largest electronic landscape platform to include an exciting new era of artists and musical performances.
