[What is MusicVket?] 

MusicVket is a music convention in virtual space. The event can be accessible not only from VR devices but also smartphones and/or PC. Visitors can go around the booths, enjoy and buy songs, and socialize with other participants including exhibitors. The idea of each booth comes from a futuristic music player; Visitors can enjoy the songs with visual effects performance when they press a play button.
