About Napster Group PLC

MelodyVR is a subsidiary of Napster Group PLC. It was launched in 2018 with a simple mandate: not to replace the live music experience, but to harness the power of virtual reality to get people closer to the music they love.

By using VR technology, the founders realised that they could place fans in the crowd or on stage with their favourite musicians at live events. From epic stadium shows to intimate studio performances, the possibilities are endless: capacity restrictions are eliminated, music lovers can attend otherwise sold-out dates, and the barriers (distance, age, cost, access) that might keep people from experiencing their heroes live are swept away. The result? Artists can reach more fans than ever before, with a level of intimacy which has previously not been possible.

MelodyVR is the only licensed VR music platform and has the world's largest library of exclusive immersive and interactive music experiences from the likes of Post Malone, Lewis Capaldi, Kesha, Tom Grennan, Cypress Hill, Blake Shelton, Mabel, Wiz Khalifa, Kelly Clarkson, The Chainsmokers and Panic! At the Disco.

Available on smartphones and VR headsets, the MelodyVR app can be downloaded at on.melodyvr.com/App
