GoPlay, a video-on-demand service from ride-hailing app GoJek, and music company Sun Eater, is set to hold its first online music festival Here Comes the Sun Virtual Edition from Oct. 31 to Nov. 1 at 7 p.m.
As part of the GoPlay Live original content, the music festival will feature independent Indonesian musicians, namely Baskara Putra or Hindia with his on-stage partner Lomba Sihir band, Agatha Pricilla, Rayhan Noor, Aldrian Risjad, .Feast, Mothern, Mantra Vutura, Natasha Udu and Martials.
The virtual festival aims to provide a new experience for audiences by adjusting its set to each of the performers' concepts. Unlike GoPlay’s Here Comes the Sun Vol. 1, which took place offline in 2019, the online format allows people to interact with and send virtual tips to their favorite musicians via the Virtual Gift feature as a form of appreciation. Other features on GoPlay that can be used during the livestream include Shoutbox, Running Text, TV Cast and Live Shopping.
Tickets are available on Loket.com and GoTix on GoJek app with prices starting from Rp 39,000 (US$2.65).
In a statement, GoPlay’s chief operating officer Calvin Kizana said, “Here Comes the Sun Virtual Edition is our initial step in thoroughly supporting independent musicians so they can channel their creativity fully.”
Calvin added that performers in the festival had a large fan-base. Musicians Kunto Aji and Pamungkas who performed in a GoPlay Live virtual concert a few months ago, for instance, attracted thousands of viewers.
Launched in July 2020, GoPlay Live is billed as the service’s interactive live-streaming platform. It allows content creators to enhance their fans’ experience in enjoying online content in more interactive ways. (wir/wng)
