boAt believes that passion lies in every street and every reel. And talent that’s out of this world, deserves a platform that’s out of this world as well. This was the inspiration behind FloAtverse – India’s first K-Pop concert in the Metaverse.

Conceptualised and executed by boAt and Digitas India, FloAtverse tapped into Gen Z’s obsessive passion for K-culture in India, which also boasts one of the world’s largest fanbases. Headlined by upcoming K-Pop idol, Priyanka Mazumdar, the concert included a performance of “Rock with boAt” - a song created exclusively for boAtheads. The Metaverse experience was opened by actor Rashmika Mandanna and hosted by internet sensation and K-Pop fanatic Radhika Bangia. Users were also given an opportunity to participate in several experiences to win exclusive discounts as well as a chance to fly to Seoul in South Korea. 

boAt’s FloAtverse K-Pop craze painted the town purple 💜💜💜, from Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube to prime OOH venues and tickets on Book My Show. 

Speaking on the initiative, Aman Gupta, Co-Founder and CMO, boAt, commented “boAt has always pioneered live experiences for a younger generation and we have continued to do so by organising India's first 

K-Pop concert in the Metaverse. Contrary to popular belief, the Metaverse can be experienced with just a smartphone and an internet connection, rather than a VR headset. Through FloAtverse, we created an experience that combines the cultural trend of K-pop with the latest marketing technology. I learned that K-Pop has a massive following in India through this initiative.”


Talking about boAt’s foray into the virtual world, Abraham Varughese, CCO, Digitas India added: “We didn’t want to just dip our toes into something new because everyone was doing it. FloAtverse was designed to be uncompromisingly relevant and give fans a compelling reason to interact with their favourite artists and their content in an alternate world. Ultimately, it delivered more than fleeting curiosity.”
