Back in December we announced the pending launch of Hydeout: The Prelude, an exciting new virtual music platform that boasted some stellar names on its roster. However, other than just a press release, we didn’t have much to go on. Well, now the platform is finally ready to go with a full schedule, and the folks over at Hydeout are not messing around. It is set to be a huge opening weekend with Martin Garrix and DJ Snake performing this Friday and Saturday respectively. There’s also been some social media posts that have been shared, and the production and virtual stages approach Tomorrowland quality. Here’s what Hydeout tells us to expect.
Hydeout: The Prelude will take fans on a truly unique journey, bridging the virtual and physical realms with secret locations around the world. Stepping through the portal, users will be transported to every corner of the globe with Hydeout’s exclusive on-demand episodes. The digital dimension will span three different worlds, HydeCity, HydeIsland and HydeEscape, encompassing over 20 stages including Aqua Sphere, HydeAlley, Pandemonium, Sanctum, The Arch, The Mirage and many other secret on-location stages in HydeEscape.
Users can also create a digital avatar and connect with other users via live chat rooms. There’s a free option for using the platform, or you can pay $49.99 for an all-access pass which gives you 5-day VOD playback on all episodes. Head over to the Hydeout website for more info and to register. Here’s the full schedule below. Hydeout: The Prelude goes live this Friday at 12 PM PST/3 PM EST/9 PM CET.
