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.
