With major festivals moving to a digital landscape for the foreseeable future in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, promoters, organizers, and artists have been finding some interesting and unique ways to make the virtual event experience more memorable than a straightforward livestream. Thankfully, Rave Family has just the recipe for such an experience, within the world of modern video game classic Minecraft.

Enter Electric Blockaloo, a virtual festival featuring over 300 artists, recreations of real life and fictional venues, mini games, and more, all taking place on Minecraft servers. Fans are able to play and attend on desktop or mobile computers via links to artist "guestlists" that will be shared via social media, and pay a GA or VIP admission charge for access to Minecraft servers, exclusive Discord servers, exclusive releases, and more. 

As for the lineup? It's simply too massive to list every artist that will be playing, but with DJ sets from JAUZ, Diplo, Tritonal, Getter, Lee Burridge, TOKiMONSTANicole Moudaber, and more, fans are sure to get their fill of great music. Furthermore, specially curated stages are being hosted by the likes of Anjunabeats (cleverly referred to within Electric Blockaloo as "Anjunablocks"), Buygore, This Never Happened, Dirtybird, and more.
