SuperBit explores what the future of music and tech can hold. The event is modeled after Two Bit Circus’ popular Beta Nights, where a curated group of third party developers and creators showcase, test, and get feedback on new projects. SuperBit invites the creative music-tech community to gather and experience new paradigms for fans to engage with music and for artists to share their stories.
“The opportunity for creativity in music and tech is unprecedented,” said Rick Farman, co-founder of Superfly. “We think Two Bit Circus is the ideal collaborator to highlight some of the most innovative experiences in this space.”
Superfly, famous for its world-renowned music festivals, is shaping the future of shared experiences, investing in companies it sees pushing the industry forward and developing new forms of IP in the entertainment sector.
“We’re big fans of social experiences and excited to explore what the future of shared music looks like,” said Brent Bushnell, CEO and Roustabout of Two Bit Circus. “Superfly brings so much creativity, talent, and experience to the table. We couldn’t dive into immersive music with a better partner.”
The SuperBit event series kicks off on November 7th. Billed as a Music-Focused Beta Night, the event launches with projects from LSTN, Techstars Music, RedPill VR, X.X.T. with Wet the Hippo, and more.
