For its inaugural installment, Metarama Gaming + Music Festival has booked Marshmello as its headlining act to help festivities during the Las Vegas affair, which is scheduled for October 19 - 20.
Besides the EDM heavyweight, entertainers like Logic, Lil Yachty and Snoop Dogg will also provide the tunes during the Sin City extravaganza. Meanwhile, Imagine Dragons will be on-site for a gaming-only appearance. When it comes to pro gamers, Ninja, DJ Alan Walker and NickMercs will be in attendance, while DrLupo, Jacksepticeye, Pokimane and Sodapoppin will rep for the top game streamers. As per Billboard, the two-day event will take over the Las Vegas Festival Grounds with two interchanging stages of live music, gaming, e-sports and comedy produced by C3 Presents and Esports Hospitality Concepts. "There is a natural fit between gaming and music,” C3 Presents’ Charlie Walker told the outlet. "At some point everybody is a gamer. There is a huge overlap in that people coming to our festivals are also gamers."
Earlier this year, the masked DJ made history when he performed a digital concert inside the realm of Fortnite, which drew upwards of 10 million virtual attendees. Additionally, his on-demand video streams for hits like "Check This Out" (24,000 percent increase), "Chasing Colors" (up by 22,547 percent) and "Everyday" featuring Logic (up by 12,653 percent) all saw major spikes in plays.
