44 Stages? Minecraft is Throwing a Virtual Music Festival Like No Other
May 22, 2020 | by Will Mitchell
You’ve probably seen (or at least heard of) several large virtual festivals that have taken place during the pandemic, but none of them can compare to this one. Whilst Fortnite has been making headlines in recent weeks thanks to Travis Scott, Diplo and so on, Minecraft is about the shake things up even more. Next month, Rave Family will team up with the game to host over 300 artists across 44 stages.
The festival, named Electric Blockaloo, is slated to take place on June 25-28 and will feature in-game replicas of several world-famous venues, such as Red Rocks, The Gorge, and even Dunder Mifflin from hit TV sit-com The Office. In true festival spirit, guests will be able to build their own campsites once they’re inside.
Those who want to join in the fun can attend via special “guestlists” that artists will share on social media prior to the event, but you’ll have to pay a GA or VIP admission charge to access the servers.
It would be futile to try and list all the talent scheduled to perform throughout the event, but some of the biggest names featured include Diplo, Zhu, A-Trak, Jamie Jones, TOKiMONSTA and more. The 40+ stages will be curated by the likes of Anjunabeats, JAUZ, Claptone, Snakehips... the list is never ending.
If you’re interested, you can RSVP to the event on Electric Blockaloo’s website.
