The Old Market In Hove Is Set To Play Host To Three Fully Immersive Gigs This December

The Old Market in Hove will create an immersive gig environment this December when it plays host to three unique gigs.

English electronic music act Plaid (6th December), genre-defying duo Who We Are (7th December) and atmospheric artist Marconi Union (10th December) will be the artists playing the auditorium of the venue wrapped in 360 degrees of digital art, all shown by FUJI Z series projectors. 

This experience will allow audience members to feel fully immersed in the experience with the bands.

Helen Jewell, Creative Director of The Old Market, said:

"We started to experiment with how immersive visuals could impact a music gig earlier this year. 

"This has been a dream of ours for many years, and now we're excited to share with the world this new way of experiencing live events in our venue. 

"Placing our audiences right in the centre of our artists visual landscapes. There's nothing better than a shared live experience and we are looking forward to welcoming you all this December!"

Tickets for these events  available via The Old Market's website – – or from TOM's Box Office on 01273 201801.
