Following Travis Scott’s seminal Fortnite performance, the trend of virtual world gigs seems to be gathering some serious pace. One Wave this week announced a series of interactive concerts in partnership with Roc Nation and Warner Music that will roll out across the summer months. The first featured Swedish electro duo Galantis with John Legend next up.
