Overview

AmazeVR is a VR concert platform company that brings artists closer to fans anywhere at any time through proprietary immersive technologies. Through our full-service solution, fans come face-to-face with their favorite artists in a virtual experience by integrating the artist’s performance in 8K+ stereoscopic live-action videos into surreal environments that transcend reality. Our distribution model optimizes for quality and reach—we’re partnering with movie theaters around the world to transform traditional auditoriums into VR concert venues, and we’re releasing online through the AmazeVR music metaverse app across major home VR headsets.
Founded by the co-founder and early executives of Kakao, a $35B market cap mobile platform company, AmazeVR has offices in Los Angeles (HQ) and Seoul. In 2019, we closed a $9.5MM Series A round of fundraising with seasoned investors in the tech and media space. Since then, we’ve built our Unreal Engine-based technical foundation, began our collaboration with 3x Grammy-winning artist Megan Thee Stallion and Roc Nation, and secured an additional $15MM to build the future of music.We’re thrilled to be creating VR Concerts with an incredibly talented and passionate team. After an incredible premiere as a SXSW official selection, we just released the world’s first ever VR concert tour with Megan Thee Stallion, selling out 75% of shows and achieving 85% total occupancy rate for a 10 city US tour before we even launchedWe can’t wait for the global projects to follow with more exciting artists lined up. Let’s build the next stage of music together.
