As livestream lineups come closer to resembling the lineups for actual IRL festivals, a new event announced Thursday (May 21) is looking to be the biggest electronic event to happen thus far during quarantine.

Happening June 25-28, Electric Blockaloo is set to feature a stacked lineup of more than 300 artists including Bedouin, Jauz, Justin Martin Nicole Moudaber, Getter, Gryffin, Tokimonsta, Walker & Royce and many more, all hosting stages built inside the game Minecraft.

Diplo’s Higher Ground, A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold, Claude VonStroke's Dirtybird Records and Claptone’s Masquerade, Jamie Jones' Paradise, Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream and Soul Clap’s House of E-Funk will all also be represented.

Interestingly, the event has an 18+ age restriction. Attendees will also pay for access to the event, with GA and VIP ticket prices. In order to purchase a ticket, attendees must first get on an artist’s guest list through a link shared by each artist ahead of the event.

Hosted by the the production company Rave Family, Electric Blockaloo will be available on both the java and Bedrock versions of Minecraft, making it possible for fans to attend on either desktop or mobile. In a fun twist, stage areas will be built to resemble Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the Dunder Mifflin office space from The Office, the Dirtybird Campout, The Gorge and more.

Not a Minecraft pro? Don't sweat it.  A "training camp" is available to ticket holders before the festival.

Electric Blockaloo is the first in a series of Minecraft-focused electronic music events that Rave Family will produce. Forthcoming events include Mad Decent and 100 Gecs. See the complete Phase One lineup below.
