The band played four of their tracks, including ‘Higher Power’, with the event available for live streaming and playback after taking place on September 5. It was held two days before the IAA Mobility International motor show, which starts today in Munich, and ends on September 12.

Speaking about the new platform, Stefan Ponikva, Vice President of Brand Communication and Brand Experience said: “With JOYTOPIA we have created our own metaverse. This sees us responding to the demand from our customers for individualised experiences in the digital space,”
