To help individuals ring in 2021, Jamestown–the owner of One Times Square–launched an immersive digital experience that will "bring the party to you." Dubbed VNYE (Virtual New Year's Eve), the digital event will offer music, gaming, and art, all available through technology in the safety of your home.
“In a year of cancellations, there’s one party that can’t be postponed. We were inspired to create a place for everyone, everywhere to gather safely to celebrate as we welcome in the New Year,” says Michael Phillips, President of Jamestown. “VNYE offers an immersive virtual world from the epicenter of New Year’s Eve—Times Square.”
The VNYE event is set in the iconic ball drop location, Times Square. The digital experience offers exclusive in-app concerts from artists like Chloe Gilligan (“Go”), Armani White (“Onederful”) and Alex Boyé (“Bend Not Break”). Moreover, gamers can enjoy the gaming contests from Ultimate Gamer, and art-lovers can appreciate the digital art gallery featuring works from 45+ contemporary artists. Lastly, the team joined forces with brands like AWS, Twitch and NASA, to allow users at home to connect with people all over the world and "bring in the New Year in a way never done before!"
