At some point, everybody has expressed a desire to go back in time and rock out with their favorite musicians. Now, a new museum is on the way to making that dream a reality, at least in one sense of the word.

The Music Hall of Fame, which will be opening in London at an as-yet unknown date within the next 18 months, will feature an exhibit in which patrons will be able to play with many legends – including Freddie Mercury, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana – via hologram technology. And, to prove to their friends that the jam session took place, they will be able to purchase a DVD of the occasion.

“You could be transported back to a specific moment of music or play with artists who are no longer alive, even playing back-to-back with a hologram.” Lee Bennet, who spearheaded the project, told the Evening Standard. “I was at Coachella watching Tupac and it blew people’s minds.”

According to Ian O’Connell of the museums, this will be made possible by beaming high-definition video of the acts onto a series of glass panes and mirrors that create a virtual “3D space,” thereby putting the fan right into the scene.
