We aren’t going to ask you when was the last time you were at a concert, because we think it’s pretty darn evident by now when that exactly was.
As event organizers all over the world figure out the best way to have concerts, music festivals, shows, etc. amidst a deadly pandemic, Spotify may have just found a new way to enjoy live music without putting your life in harms way.
An upcoming potential development suggests that the app could in the future have virtual concerts!

Jane Manchun Wong, who is popularly known for reverse-engineering apps and services, seemed to have discovered evidence of the latest development within Spotify.
Sharing the news via Twitter, she tweeted screenshots of a list of concerts in Stockholm, with dates as well as the lineup of artists who would be performing. She also shared another screenshot of those who would be playing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, which has been set to take place in September.

If the new feature comes in to play, it can help concertgoers to attend concerts without even leaving the application, let alone leaving the house. Yeah, we know it’s not the same, but beggars mustn’t be choosers right?
With the whole Covid-19 situation worldwide, the entertainment industry seems to have taken a hit as bad and detrimental as the Titanic. Putting so many out of jobs and at huge losses, event organizers has had to find other means of survival, i.e virtual reality.

There has yet to be any comments from Spotify on the matter, but we do think that partnering with the major app, would very much help events reach a much wider and needed audience for the entertainment industry, more so now than ever.
