“I could see the walls closing in, even though the storm hadn’t fully broken yet” recalled gig musician, singer and event host, Audrey Lim, when the pandemic first hit. In February 2020, she quickly put together a volunteer-run platform to connect musicians so they could live stream performances.

Today, this Take Back The Nights movement has turned into a full-blown virtual reality (VR) festival featuring homegrown talents, as well as panel discussions about music and entertainment, built within a gaming environment, complete with user avatars that can soar through the air.

What were the challenges faced and the preparations that went behind creating a virtual reality festival online?
