100 gecs are announcing a Minecraft music festival, because of course they are. The extremely online weirdo-pop duo of Dylan Brady and Laura Les played their first-ever show on Minecraft early last year, and now that all live music is cancelled and people like American Football are headlining virtual concerts in Minecraft, 100 gecs have decided to host a video game fest of their own.
Their music festival, Square Garden, is a benefit to raise money for Feeding America. 100 gecs and Charli XCX are co-headlining, and the lineup also includes other collaborators and kindred spirits like Kero Kero Bonito, A.G. Cook, GFOTY, Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco, Danny L Harle, Dorian Electra, Alice Longyu Gao, Count Baldor, Umru, Tommy Cash, 99Jakes, Alice Gas, Gupi, Fraxiom, and Parry Gripp.
Square Garden will be built in the virtual world of Minecraft, but it’ll also be streaming on 100 gecs’ YouTube channel and official website. It’s set to take place next week, 4/24, from 6PM-10PM ET. See the poster above for more information and find instructions on how to watch here.
