Samsung takes fans onto the stage in a 360-video, shot during The Naked and Famous’s performance at Auckland City Limits last month.

The video, able to be viewed on Chrome browsers, gets viewers close to the band giving them an appreciation for the crowd. Dragging the mouse, or tilting mobiles allows the viewer to pan 360-degrees.

Samsung created the video as part of its #GS7JoinTheBand festival campaign, in which fans could visit the Samsung tent for a Live 360 degree Main Stage Experience through VR headsets.

Thanks to everyone who joined as at #ACLFestNZ for the best view in the house with the #GearVR and Live 360º Main Stage Experience.     #GS7JoinTheBand
