FLUF World NFT project yesterday announced that it is the official title sponsor for this year’s SXSW XR, Austin’s leading tech festival. The event will function as the third instalment of FLUF Haus, an interactive real-life event. Last month, the FLUF World NFT project had hosted the second edition of the FLUF Haus event in Los Angeles. The event celebrated the project’s love for music, entertainment, and sports.
This time, FLUF World will take over the SXSW XR for a four-day long open metaverse experience. The FLUF World experiences include a lineup of events at a custom-built FLUF Village in Austin and an industry leadership panel to discuss the future of Web3. In addition, there will be immersive experiences and a two-day party experience for attendees to enjoy. As a matter of fact, the SXSW event is a crucial step in FLUF World’s mission to create an open and inclusive metaverse.
“We see the event as the perfect platform to gather the industry and lay out the foundations of a true, open and inclusive metaverse,” said Brooke Howard-Smith, FLUF World Co-Founder. “SXSW is also the perfect venue to introduce what we believe is the world’s most dynamic metaverse ecosystem, including partners that specialize in AI, VR, sustainability, music, security, creativity and communications in the metaverse.”
FLUF World x SXSW: All you need to know
First and foremost, FLUF World has partnered with Young & Sick for two exclusive performances at SXSW. Actually, to make things interesting, the project will recreate the Young & Sick FLUF Village experience in AR on Snapchat. In other words, Snapchat users will get a chance to experience a virtual FLUF Village. Besides, they can also enter a raffle for a chance to win four NFTs from the FLUF, Altered State Machine, Party Bear, and Seekers. Apparently, these NFTs are worth tens of thousands of dollars! In addition, Snapchat users can watch Young & Sick’s exclusive NFT scene and sound drop in the AR world.
FLUF World will take the center stage at SXSW’s NFT world. It will host NFT leaders and metaverse enthusiasts in the custom-built FLUF Village. The venue is made up of three geodesic domes—FLUF Dome, Beyond Dome, and ASM Dome. Located in Central Austin, it can accommodate over 1,200 guests.
On March 12 and 13, The FLUF World Village will host round table discussions, VR chats, metaverse deep dives, and artist workshops. Apart from this, it will also host interactive music and discussion session with Mike Shinoda. Besides, metaverse star AngelBaby and Dillion Francis will hold additional musical sets over the two days.
After this, on March 14 and 15, FLUF World will move to the Fairmont Hotel to host an official SXSW XR panel discussion. Moderated by Real Vision founder Raoul Pal, the panel will discuss the issues and opportunities in the Web3 space.
The discussions and workshops are accessible to both FLUF World community members and SXSW badge holders. The events will also be live-streamed on the FLUF Haus’ website.
