“ACL: Backstage” previously released the first four episodes featuring Ed Sheeran, Zac Brown Band, Father John Misty, and the Austin City Limits crew in “Unsung Heroes,” and the remaining six episodes will be released throughout January, February and March. The videos offer a full 360º view that lets you look up, down, and all around.
Completely surrounded by sight and sound, all it takes is the turn of a head, tilt of a phone, or a drag of the mouse to explore the story from every angle. Viewers can watch exclusively on YouTube via web, mobile, or for the best experience, with a Google Daydream View headset via the YouTube VR app.
Run the Jewels rappers Killer Mike and El-P, known for their on-stage explosions of socially-conscious lyrics and slamming beats, talk about preaching unity in an increasingly polarized country. The series, shot in 6K 360° Video and created by SubVRsive and ACL, in partnership with Google and sponsored by Apple Music, gives an up-close look at some of the season’s most iconic performances and takes viewers backstage to hear from the artists before they step under the lights at Austin’s famous Moody Theater.
As this series is truly at the intersection of technology and entertainment, thought this might make for an interesting piece, especially with such a historic TV show.
