Watch HWCH headliners Basciville play a virtual reailty gig
Quick, grab your phone, there's a Basciville show about to start.
Pictured above is the Firstage marker for Basciville's virtual reality performance of 'Sweetheart Rodeo'. Read on for how to get the show started
This weekeed sees the fourth and final virtual stage in The Ticket, as the Hard Working Class Heroes bandwagon rolls into town.
This week’s virtual stage, in association with Firstage and the festival, features Basciville. The band are brothers Cillian and Lorcan Byrne from Wexford. They play this Saturday at 10pm in Dublin's Workmans Club. You can catch all the artists from our virtual stages at this weekend’s festival. Or point your phone at the virtual stage above and watch them come to life on the page.
So how does it work? Download the Firstage app for free (available on Android and iOS). Select the act you want to see. Then, point your phone at the logo above, hold it at approximately a 60-degree angle, and watch the artists appear, with a performance recorded especially for The Ticket.(obviously you can't do this if you're reading on mobile - you'll need to find another screen, or better still, a copy of today's Ticket). Check out this video of Hare Squead trying out the app a few weeks back.
Once the app is up an running, you can donate to the act, pay for an “encore” extra track, or buy their exclusive Firstage track by hitting the magic F button during a performance. Enjoy.
The Hard Working Class Heroes festival runs until Saturday at various venues around Dublin. See hwch.net for more
