Meta Quest is celebrating Black Music Month and Juneteenth with the help of a few R&B acts.
The company has announced its 3D 180˚ VR concert series, Soul Sessions, with performances by Lucky Daye UMI and serpentwithfeet. The performances launch June 16 at 10 a.m. PT on Oculus TV for the Quest Platform.
Fans in the U.S. and Canada who prefer to watch the performances in a social environment with a Meta Quest 2 can tune in via an Always On room in Venues in Horizon Worlds — a social VR experience — from June 16 at 4 p.m. PT through June 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Viewers must be at least age 18 to participate.
Meta Quest 2 is the latest all-in-one, completely wireless VR headset from Meta that features faster performance and our highest-resolution display ever.
UMI released her debut album, Forest in the City, in May via Keep Cool/RCA Records. She is currently on her Forest in the City Tour promoting her new project, which concludes June 29 in Chicago, Illinois.
Serpentwithfeet recently performed at the Roots Picnic in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In March 2021, he released his Deacon album, and he followed up in November with an EP titled Deacon’s Grove. It includes appearances from Alex Isley and Ambré on the “Fellowship (Remix).”
