Prime Gaming’s Crown Channel and Riot Games are teaming up once again for wwFest: Unlocked YR1, a worldwide cutting-edge virtual electronic music festival celebrating the one-year anniversary of VALORANT.

The musical sets go around the world in one day, featuring five major locations including Los Angeles, South Korea, Dubai, Mexico, and Germany, each designed to reflect the virtual world of VALORANT. Similar to the original wwFest: VALORANT, the interactive festival experience inspired by VALORANT will capture the excitement of an in-person event with a cutting-edge extended reality (XR) stage that gives viewers an immersive and interactive experience from the comfort of home. This bold, six-hour festival will feature interactive elements channeling VALORANT gameplay in Twitch chat to give viewers control over the look, feel, and vibe of each performance.

Headlining the festival is Gryffin, the American musician, DJ, and producer well known for songs Feel Good and Tie Me Down, and for remixing Desire by Years and Years. Gryffin will perform live from Los Angeles, where Aluna will open the show. Performing out of Dubai is Imanbek, most known for his remix of Saint Jhn’s Roses. Taking the Germany stage is Unknown Brain, the anonymous DJ duo making waves in the EDM scene, and taking the Mexico stage is Boombox Cartel, best known for their self-released breakout track, B2U featuring Ian Everson in 2015. Finally, taking South Korea’s stage will be rising talent Justin Oh, who released an original song for the festival, featured in the wwFest: Unlocked YR1 teaser
