It is no doubt that the music festival scene has changed over the past decade. As music itself continues to evolve so will the events and 3LAU just changed the game. 3LAU, or Justin Blau, recently announced that he is spearheading a brand new kind of music festival called Our Music Festival (OMF). So what exactly makes OMF different from the rest of the festivals that we already know? OMF is the first of its kind to be completely powered by block-chain technology. While cryptocurrencies have seen much mixed reviews and publicity in the financial sector, it has raised many questions about social causes and more importantly our global economy. Furthermore, ticket fraud, ticket scalpers, etc. are all still in play that ultimately give rise to ticket inflation. OMF sets itself differently from the traditional model that festivals follow by adopting cryptocurrency into its payment systems where festival attendees can earn "tokens" for tickets, VIP upgrades, merchandise, food and beverages. 3LAU plans to revolutionize the festival experience and the way business is done as a whole.
"The blockchain space is littered with promises that lack real world application. We’re throwing our first event this year to show our commitment to inciting change. While it will take time for OMF to reach its full potential, our team has studied blockchain-layered applications and legal compliance for years to facilitate realistic steps toward decentralization.”
Our Music Festival will be taking place at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA on Saturday, October 20 with 3LAU, ZEDD, Big Sean, Matt and Kim and Charlotte Lawrence.
