Survey on Hologram Concerts in 2023

Hologram concerts are not an entirely new concept but have entered a new era through advancements in light, sound, and stage technology, for holographic and virtual concepts.

After ABBA’s success with their virtual ‘Voyage’ show in London, England, and the announcement to bring the holographic experience on tour around the world, this could be the starting point for music fans to experience new forms of performances and shows from their favourite artists.

A survey was conducted by PartyCasino Canada on 21 March 2023, where 1000 Canadians answered 14 questions on their views, experiences, and expectations of hologram concerts, and what artists they would like to see featured in concert-like environments.

The full results are presented below and here is an overview of the main topics:
