Among other many things, the pandemic that we are experiencing this spring of 2020 it has ruined thousands of concerts and festivals throughout the planet. For this reason, many artists are carrying out direct on the Internet to be connected with their public.
Open-Pit, the team behind some of the music festivals, ephemeral (attentive to the games of words: Coalchella, Firefest or Mine Gala), has just announced Nether Meant: a music festival that seeks to raise funds for a good cause.
Saturday, April 11
— Open Pit (@OpenPitPresents) April 5, 2020
The interesting point of this festival is that will take place inside of ‘Minecraft’. Will participate in some projects as well-known as American Football, Anamanaguchi (I recommend listening to the soundtrack they made for the video game of ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’) or Baths.
How to follow this festival live
Will be to the 6PM (EST) Saturday, April 11: one hour less in cities such as Mexico City or Bogota, while in Spain, we will stay up late at night (matches the 00:00 of Sunday, April 12).
The festival Nether Meant will take place in a fictional space called “Elsewither”and all users of ‘Minecraft’ will be able to attend. The instructions are detailed in the web page of the project, but it will be as easy as following the steps below:
- Open Minecraft
- Do click on “Multiplayer”
- Click on “add server” and enter “PLAY.ELSEWITHER.CLUB” in the address bar
- Activate the Server Resource Pack and enjoy
Before the event it will be possible to buy VIP passes, and all winnings that are generated in this way will go to Good360: a non-profit organization u.s. that helps companies donate excess merchandise to charities instead of destroying it (something that can be very necessary in these weeks of confinement).
Anyway, if you don’t have Minecraftthe good news is that you can also follow the festival via Twitch. As we said, is not the first time that the Open Pit organizes concerts within Minecraft, but on this occasion, the festival seeks to be a source of support and entertainment to the critical moment we are living.
