House music and art will come together at the Planet X Anniversary show, an immersive journey ushering in the future of live events. The musical adventure goes down in Los Angeles this Saturday, March 19, inside a mind-blowing 90-foot dome. The epic structure offers 360-degree visuals, surround sound, projections and amazing NFT galleries.
UBL Events, which stands for United By Love, is bringing some of the most respected house artists to the NFT world. The lineup features Justin Jay, Sage Armstrong, Huxley, Wyatt Marshall b2b Rybo, Jako, January Black on the main stage. A second stage, Timeless Garden, will showcase some of the future faces of house: Miguel Gallerdo, Diskreet, Awsumo, Carlo Key, Seek-One, Andress Pressure, Jacz and Cody Cordova.
Here’s a preview of the vibe from Vincent Rotella, founder of UBL and CEO of It’s All Love:
“As we all land on a planet that has been lost in space but has been discovered by humanoids, we find a world so colorful filled with trees that dance, mythical creatures as we explore this mysterious world as we run into others as we go on this journey together.
“It became apparent that it is a very loving and welcoming planet where you can be yourself without judgment and where there is magic in the air literally so you can be whatever you desire spreading love and as we walked the sound of music led us to Vincent Rotella, who showed us what life is truly about and that it unites everyone.”
NFT’s are the next big thing, and even Calvin Harris said they can ”completely revolutionize the music industry.”
UBL’s Dark Universe dome stars Kane Mayfield’s NFT art exhibition “Handprints“. It is first-in-kind, with 20 one-of-ones that dropped and sold out on the Bitcoin blockchain earlier this week. At the show, it will be dropping on OpenSea’s Ethereum blockchain. The exhibition benefits the Fight Against Child Trafficking.
“Handprints reminds us of the plight of millions suffering as child slaves in the labor markets around the world,” said UBLJAX event executive producer Tim Ellis.
More than a dozen other NFT collections on display include “Starry Night” by Marko.
“Once in a lifetime opportunity came to me and I was not even aware it would be possible at all,” Marko said. “I strongly believe sharing awareness about the idea of owning a digital art on blockchain and all perks it comes with is the future and is so much different than owning a physical art.”
NFT as art is still in its infancy and show attendees will realize NFT’s are more than just art, said Grant Dismuke, head NFT, Metaverse UBL Events.
“The artist and projects presented will teach people the many ways the art can act as a digital ticket to many perks!” Dismuke said.
“We are just scratching the surface of what’s possible!”
Attendees can also enjoy acrobatic performances, gourmet food vendors and massage stations.
