Fans around the world will have the opportunity to join the godfather of electronic music for a hybrid concert on Christmas Day.
This Christmas, Jean-Michel Jarre is gifting fans a grand holiday spectacle unlike any other.
In a spectacular fusion of historical grandeur and cutting-edge innovation, Jarre, the legendary electronic music pioneer, is set to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Château de Versailles with a one-of-a-kind concert experience. The event, aptly named "Versailles 400," promises to be an immersive journey through time, blending the opulence of the 17th-century palace with 21st-century technologies.
Scheduled for Christmas Day, the concert will be held in the iconic Hall of Mirrors, a symbol of artistic and technological excellence from the era of King Louis XIV. Revered for for his envelope-pushing live events, Jarre will don the LYNX mixed reality headset for the performance, which will allow him to simultaneously engage with both a live crowd in the Hall of Mirrors as well as a virtual audience in a futuristic digital version of the same space.
"Versailles 400 is a hybrid concert and visual creation broadcast live from one of the world's most beautiful locations, as well as in virtual reality in the metaverse," Jarre said in a statement. "I hope the event will help promote our creative savoir-faire and bring the world of French immersive creation to the forefront of collective culture."
