A new digital music festival, wwfest: VALORANT, will feature the convergence of competitive gaming, live music, and street art.
Presented by Crown Channel and Riot Games, the debut event is set to feature a headlining performance from Grammy Award-nominated Good Faith artist Madeon. The full slate of performing dance music artists includes ARMNHMR, Moore Kismet, Ookay, and WHIPPED CREAM.
The gaming title of choice will, of course, be Riot Games' tactical 5-on-5 shooter, VALORANT. The event promises to engage audiences at home in a unique way through the use of drone technology. Fans can catch the action through the lenses of different drones, providing a variety of angles and perspectives of all the action as it takes place.
