According to reports, the concert was headed by an "NFT Artist." 

Ape Rave Club released photos of the performance on their Twitter account, showing an artist wearing a BAYC NFT mask performing music with the caption “A @BoredApeYC on the @tomorrowland main stage. We are just getting started! 🍌🔊”

Tomorrowland and NFTs

Tomorrowland, a well-known music event, has been being held for the last 17 years. However, Tomorrowland is now entering the NFT arena with its Medallion of Memoria collection, which will grant unique admission to its events, according to a recent blog on its website.

So what does this mean for Web3?

Tomorrowland and Ape Rave Club collaborating might be seen as a minor step toward Web 3.0. It remains to be seen if this will signal a dramatic change in entertainment toward a "decentralized internet." 

For the time being, the wider cryptocurrency and NFT industry are in a highly restrained phase, with asset values falling drastically. 

Only time will tell if Ape Rave Club's NFT artist status will have a long-term impact.
