Firstage is a mobile application that allows users to stream live musical performances and exclusive events featuring their favorite musicians right on to their coffee table using augmented reality. The Irish platform permits fans real-time experience and on-demand access to performers all over the world, eliminating typical barriers between musicians and their audiences like transportation and venue cost as well as issues of location.

Tomorrow June 19 at 4pm EST, Firstage will broadcast the world’s first-ever live-streamed AR gig, featuring hip hop artist Darce as the performer, a major step for the music industry and a potentially revolutionary move for the way fans consume live performances. Founder Keith Lawler explains, “I’m very excited to bring Firstage Live to the world. The only way for artists to earn money these days is  by playing live, but you can only play one gig at a time and your audience is limited. With Firstage, you can play live to millions of fans any place in the world.”

Not only does the app allow up-and-coming musicians in particular greater opportunity for exposure and to keep more of their revenue, but it also allows users to connect directly to the artists and music they enjoy, permitting them enhanced accessibility and optimal convenience, as they can stream, watch and listen in 3D wherever they are.
