Over the last year, Music and XR have undergone seismic shifts as the chaos of 2020 catalyzed the adoption of new and nascent technology. Music and live events responded to the pressure to push beyond the boundaries of place, embracing virtual platforms that offer artists new ways to connect with their fans and share the experience of music.
