The Rainforest Soiree
a 360 Degree Virtual Reality Festival
November 1st, 2020
Join us on Sunday, November 1st for an interactive multiplayer 3D virtual reality festival crafted by Illumine Projection Domes and Shawmaynes.
We humbly feature an eclectic multi-genre range of talented regional and nationally touring musicians, painters, and visual artists for an 11 hour fully immersive audio/visual journey.
If you have a PC that meets these system requirements, you can participate in the event using VR Chat, with or without a VR headset. (Need help? Check out VRChat Setup.)
You'll be able to chat with other attendees and explore the grounds viewing works from 8 painters, multiple VJs and musical performances along with a few other surprises we will be announcing soon.
No PC? No problem. Your ticket package will include Shinecon VR glasses, which will allow you to see a live 360 stream of the event on YouTube. You won't be able to interact with other players in this mode, but you'll still be able to enjoy the music and art in full 360 VR.
The package also includes a wooden Shawmaynes pin, a LE piece of art from a featured artist and one unreleased piece of memorabilia. 50% of all proceeds will be donated to charities in the USA and Peru.
Stay tuned to the Shawmaynes page for updates.
By donating directly to the event the funds will be dispersed back out to the artists and charities:
