There are still places where music fans can get together to groove. These places are simply digital and accessible on PC, console and smartphone. Rave Family event company turns to Minecraft to set up an electronic music festival in a world shocked by COVID-19. The event, which Rave Family Calls Electric Blockaloo, will feature more than 300 artists from June 25 to 28.
This is the latest example of performing artists offering creative solutions to continue living in a world without concerts. To attend the event in Minecraft, you must pay an entrance fee. And the artists participate in the sale of these tickets. Each artist has their own link that they can provide to fans. If fans buy access to Electric Blockaloo through an artist link, that musician will get a larger share of that sale.
“Everyone asked us,” What is the new standard? “” Said event founder Jackie McGuire. “And this is normal without major festivals for the foreseeable future. Electric Blockaloo is a place where artists and fans can come together, create shared musical experiences and reconnect immersively. It is also much more environmentally friendly than traditional festivals, and part of each ticket will help support Bye Bye Plastic, an incredible organization that aims to eliminate single-use plastic from music festivals by 2025. “
Electric Blockaloo has several stages featuring artists like Diplo, A-Trak and Above & Beyond. Minecraft sites will have several areas to explore while the music is playing. This includes spaces like an office recreation from Office and Red Blocks, which is like the Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado.
The event plans to unveil its full range next week.
