The concert-like experience sees Grealish and Heldens debut a new, exclusive collaboration track and takes place in a futuristic stadium built in the Everdome metaverse.
Jack Grealish said: “I love music and I’ve wanted to try my hand at DJing for a long time. What I couldn’t have expected was that my DJing debut would come in the metaverse! The OKX Collective metaverse is unique and I’m honoured to share this special collab alongside a DJing legend like Oliver with fans from all over the world.”
