"Get a front row seat for the Fantas"
“The Fantas in 360 degrees – it’s going to be great fun and an amazing show,” says the band’s front man Smudo, describing the innovative broadcasting technology. “The live stream is turning the concert into a Germany-wide party for our fans. It’s a good test run for our big stadium tour that starts in December.”
“Die Fantastischen Vier are absolute legends. Their exclusive performance at IFA is a real highlight for us,” says Michael Schuld, head of Communication and Sales Marketing at Telekom Deutschland. “Our live stream is going to help all music fans – whether they’re at home or out and about – get a front row seat for the Fantas on the best network there is.”
A total of 29 years of music-making, five number-one albums, going platinum six times in Germany, countless awards, and sold-out concert venues – Die Fantastischen Vier have been one of the best-known and most successful bands in the industry for years. Following on from their anniversary album “Rekord”, Smudo, Thomas D, Michi Beck, and And.Ypsilon released their tenth studio album “Captain Fantastic” at the end of April. Starting in December, they are taking it on tour through Germany’s biggest venues. A work of art in concrete, Kraftwerk Berlin has long been home to world-famous techno club Tresor, and is one of Berlin’s true cultural highlights.
"Free live stream"
The MagentaMusik 360 package underlines Deutsche Telekom’s leading role at the cutting edge of VR and 360-degree entertainment. Popular music events are broadcast using state-of-the-art VR and 360-degree technology in a free live stream and are also available on demand afterwards. The live stream gives viewers the perspective of a director, enabling them to choose between viewing angles and move around in 360 degrees. Unusual perspectives, such as looking at the crowd from the stage or standing right next to the singer, drummer or guitarist bring fans right into the heart of the action and deliver a unique virtual concert experience, whether viewers are at home or out and about.
