$Warner Music(WMG.US)$, home to artists including Bruno Mars, Dua Lipa, and Cardi B, said Thursday it was building a new kind of concert-focused theme park in the metaverse. HeyHeyHey

The music giant, which owns record labels Atlantic, Elektra, and Warner Records, among others, said in a press release that it would build a combined theme park and virtual concert venue in the Sandbox, a metaverse platform.

The space will feature virtual concerts and musical experiences by the artists under the Warner Music Group umbrella. According to the Sandbox, the space is set to be completed sometime this year. The price of the project was not immediately available.

Warner said in a press release it considers itself a "first-mover" in the area of metaverse concerts, and in that sense it's working hard to avoid repeating past mistakes.
Around two decades ago, Warner was one of the major labels that fought hard against the rise of file sharing, largely in the form of Napster, a disruptive technology not unlike the metaverse that ultimately led to a catastrophic collapse in recorded-music sales. Major-label adaptation to streaming, largely in the form of $Spotify Technology(SPOT.US)$, saw music revenue start growing again around 2015 after 15 years of huge declines. That year is also when Warner's revenue from streaming surpassed sales of downloaded songs for the first time, making up 56.1% of the entire company's revenue.
