AltspaceVR is the premier place to attend live shows, meetups, cool classes, and more with friendly people from around the world. All thanks to the magic of Virtual Reality. 


HiveFest 5 will be organised in a dedicated HiveFest Virtual World build in the AltspaceVR platform. 


Attend HiveFest via VR, Windows and Mac Apps


AltspaceVR is a beautiful immersive 3D world supporting binaural (3D) audio. When entered with a VR headset on, it is as if one really enters a new dimensions and submerges into a new world. 


The best way to consume HiveFest5 is through a VR Headset, which currently retail starting at 199 USD. This for most, should be significantly cheaper then a flight ticket to Bangkok :). Through AltspaceVR you will be able to meet and chat with other HiveFest attendees as if you where in a room together, no social distancing required either. HiveFest will also be streamed live for consuming on smartphones and other screens.



If you are planning on attending HiveFest through AltspaceVR please do the following asap:

  1. Please download & install the AltspaceVR app as soon as possible
  2. Setup your account through the AltspaceVR app
    • It would be great if you can use the same user/displayname as you have on Hive!
  3. Customise your avatar after logging in by going to Menu > Me > Customise Avatar


 VR Headset apps

AltspaceVR supports the following VR Headset devices: 

  • HTC Vive
  • Oculus Rift
  • Oculus Rift S
  • Oculus Go (Phased out in December 2020)
  • Oculus Quest & Quest2
  • Windows Mixed Reality

Simply go into the appstore or companion app for your VR Headset and find the AltspaceVR application. 



 Apps for Desktop

No VR Headset? No problem. The 2D experience is the next best thing, but still, if you can, use one of the supported headsets. 


Please use headphones or a headset with microphone to prevent echo and a disturbed audio experience for other attendees when joining in via the Desktop apps.



Check out this great article on AltspaceVR's site on how to use the controls on your Keyboard & Mouse.


Follow HiveFest live on other devices

Unfortunately AltspaceVR is too detailed and enhanced to run of your smartphone as of now. You can still follow the presentations as they happen in VR through the live video stream.
