When it comes to live music, VR is a game changer. In 2016, Coachella shipped Google Cardboard headsets to festival goers to augment their festival experience, and ACL live-streamed some of its top artists in 360 degrees so fans from all over the world could experience the shows from home. In this panel, we'll speak with VR and music industry experts from Austin City Limits and Google to learn what makes a truly great VR music experience and what we can expect down the road.
