Hot on the heels of his first-ever Grammy nomination, electronic music virtuoso Baauer is dipping his toes in the virtual festival scene.
The famed producer, whose stunning PLANET'S MAD audiovisual album garnered a 2021 nod for the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album, has announced his own digital music festival called BOPFEST. In an ode to the one-year anniversary of his first livestream, the online-only event will go down on Baauer’s Twitch channel next Saturday, April 10th.
Baauer's inaugural BOPFEST lineup features Good Times Ahead and X&G, two renowned electronic duos, as well as surprise appearances from unannounced special guests and numerous winners of Baauer’s livestreamed Twitch beat battles. The stream also promises a brand new musical performance from Baauer, who will also debut a number of original comedic sketches.

Back in December 2020, Baauer dropped a massive mixtape called The Boptape, which comprises a staggering 19 beats he had produced live on Twitch and remastered for release. More recently, he was announced on the 2021 lineup for Southern California's HARD Summer festival, where he will perform a collaborative DJ set with fellow bass music titan RL Grime.
