HiveFest weekend coming up! All names, Schedule, Livestream and some VR guidelines

in #hivefest29 days ago (edited)

Happening in about 2 days, ramping up for edition 6 of HiveFest. After a great turnout for HiveChat on Twitter, you should be getting ready for another epic edition in AltspaceVR, right? In this update you will find the schedule, livestream location for those who are not able to join in VR and some generic VR guidelines. Well over 600 folks have registered via HiveFe.st website, so let's see how many manage to get in to AltspaceVR!

Setup your AltspaceVR account already and update your softwares!

Navigating HiveFest 2021 in AltspaceVR

HiveFest consists this year of 4 main worlds:

  1. Lobby Meadows: this is the default start place / launchpad, pickup your badge here, mingle have fun and go out on Altspace missions. You can follow the main / presenter stage via the in-world livestream or hop to various other event and non-event worlds
  2. Mainstage: This is the presenters' world: an open air stage which hosts the stage to 30+ Hive related projects over the course of 2 days. Please respect the pressenters on stage, fellow crowd trying to listen in. Crowd interaction, like questions is possible, but moderated by using the so-called "Raise Hand" feature, which is opened up, whenever appropriate by the presenter.
  3. NFTShowroom gallery: over 40 artworks have been curated: artists currently selling their artworks on NFTshowroom.com. On display in this airy art gallery world for you to explore fellow creative Hiveans. Find something you like? Take a picture and find the artist later on on NFTShowroom.com!
  4. Hivefest Holograms against Humanity game: an interactive (NSFW?) card game to play with fellow attendees, based on the famous "Cards against Humanity": Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.

Note: Because of capacity reasons, both the Lobby and Mainstage will have several "instances" running. These are called rooms and you can upon entering pick your own room to go to. You will see how many people are in a certain room, and you should be able to see where some of your (Altspace) friends are hanging out. Be sure to add some friends on AltspaceVR to follow them along!

How to get your HiveFest Conference Badge

If register on HiveFe.st before the cutoff, about 12 hours before the event you will receive an encrypted memo containing your secret word. This will be a combo of "hiveusername:secretword". Upon entering HiveFest in the Lobby area you can find a big computer, which is actually running the blockchain. Here you can checkin with that "hiveusername:secretword" combination to grab your own interactive conference badge. Keep the secretword to yourself!

How to behave in VR: just like the real world... And then some

Ok. 600 people inside a VR world. Everyone influences eachother's experience. We all have unique internet connections, and an array of audio devices and more over: unique background noises :)

Basic rules for making the experience fun for everyone:

  1. Use a headset on the AltspaceVR desktop apps: this prevent echo-ing
  2. Mute yourself when not communicating: again: echo.
  3. Be nice! Every avatar you see, represents a real person.
  4. You hear someone's audio glitch/stutter? Kindly notify her/him, re-entering the space most of the time fixes this stutter.
  5. Going for a break in the real world? Please exit the VR room, so your avatar is not dangling AWOL in the VR world.

HiveFest 2021 Schedule

Over 30 projects and speakers take the stage during friday and saturday. Both days start on 4PM UTC and run for about 4 hours with every 15 minutes another presentation. Be ready with some drinks and foods so you don't miss out. The Lobby World opens each day one hour in advance at 3PM UTC.

After a great turnout for HiveChat on Twitter, you should be getting ready for another epic edition in AltspaceVR, right?

Unfortunately nowadays I cannot afford a VR headset, nor a computer/laptop. I have not even used a VR headset so far, but I saw other people using them.

Otherwise I would probably be ready for it. And for many other things, because that would mean that I have a proper income. But I do not. I live under the local minimum wage in Hungary.

Enjoy AltspaceVR, if you can. Have a nice day.
All the best. Greetings from Hungary.

You don't need a VR Headset, it works amazingly well in 2D mode.

Yes, but I do not have (and cannot afford) a PC/laptop either.

Watching the live streams is your best bet then.

If I have time and mobile internet signal, then I will probably check the livestreams. Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings from Hungary.

I am so excited. Never went to a Hivefest and the first time being at one I am instantly presenting.
@roelandp already put some great effort in this and the contact so far was more than nice. I believe this will be a great Hifefest for all of us presenting and visiting.

Thank you so much @roelandp. So much labor you have made to make this wonderful event take place, we appreciate your effort making this.

You can count on me to continue promoting HiveFest especially on Twitter

Pumped to be signed up! Glad it’s not by email because I used a different email to sign up for the fest and created a new one for Microsoft for the altspace. Maybe next year I can talk about Hivelist! No VR and running their Mac pilot so let's see how this goes, lol!

Fantastic... shared and looking forward to it #posh

Less than 48 hours to go!!

Getting ready for HiveFest6 :)

Thank so much! can't wait to hang with everyone!

Weeeeee thank you and see you in Hivefest 💐🌿

I can't wait to see all of you !! See youn soon in HiveFest ;)

Thank you very much @roelandp

Good morning, I would like to register for the Hivefest but it seems that the option is already closed. I didn't do it before because I thought I needed the virtual reality glasses, an unforgivable fault as a hivers.

I apologize for my lack of commitment, for now I want to know if there is any possibility of registering at this time, thanks. @roelandp

Thank you, @roelandp, for all the good work you do.✌️ This is an exciting time for blockchain/crypto and, hopefully, this will contribute to the success of (y)our event!

For my part, I'm happy to amplify it on Twitter.

The Future is Now & it's wonderful not only to see it, but shape it, too 😊

Hee veel plezier en knock the hive ball out of the park into space

Hi @roelandp,

Just a quick check in.

A while ago I registered to attend Hive Fest (and have also donated 100 HBD) but as of yet I haven't received a ticket. Am or did I miss something?

Can you please advise?

Sincerely,

@wil.metcalfe
P.S. I also attempted to contact you via the "Submit Ticket" option to contact you or your staff on the main site but the process didn't work and I ended up getting a strange error message. That's why I decided to reach out directly here on Hive.
