'Valorant' Inspired Digital Music Festival Planned For January 2021

by Rainier on Dec. 8, 2020 @ 8:49 a.m. PST

Valorant is a competitive 5v5 character-based tactical shooter where creativity is your greatest weapon.

Here’s what we think it takes for you to trust a game enough to invest: 128-tick servers, at least 30 frames per second on most min-spec computers (even dating back a decade), 60 to 144 FPS on modern gaming rigs, a global spread of datacenters aimed at <35ms for players in major cities around the world, a netcode we’ve been obsessing over for years, and a commitment to anti-cheat from day one.

Shooting in Valorant is precise, consequential, and highly-lethal - we want you to win on your skill and strategy alone.

Imagine this: tactical shooter meets hypernatural powers. Everyone’s got guns and a unique set of abilities, so how do you beat someone with the speed of wind? Use your own moves to outplay them and beat them to the shot. VALORANT is a game for bold strategists who dare to make the unexpected play, because if it wins, it works.

Crown Channel and Riot Games are teaming up to kick off 2021 with wwFest: VALORANT, an experimental music and art festival set to air live January 15, 2021 on Crown Channel. Viewers will enjoy a merging of physical and digital worlds, with a sprawling exhibition space inspired by the in-game world of VALORANT, Riot’s stylish, competitive tactical shooter game. The festival will include musical performances from a growing roster of international musicians, artists, and dancers, including: ARMNHMR, Moore Kismet, Ookay, and Whipped Cream, with more to be announced.

Capturing the excitement of an in-person event, wwFest: VALORANT will give viewers an immersive, interactive festival event to be enjoyed from the comfort of home. Using the latest in drone technology, wwFest: VALORANT will be a first-of-its-kind concert experience, with enough variety and detail to rival a physical event. The festival’s live music performances and active art installations will be captured by stunning drone footage filmed from the perspective of VALORANT Agents: Raze, Reyna, Phoenix, Killjoy, and Jett. 

Viewers will be able to curate their own personalized festival experience via unique drone feeds that each represent a different VALORANT agent, allowing viewers to explore a recreation of the in-game world of VALORANT, and capturing pre- and post-performance moments through the ‘eyes’ of the agents themselves. Each agent’s feed will be tailored to reflect their individual attitude, culture, and style, and when the agent is on the main stage, viewers will see a variety of expansive, close-up, and alternate angles during the on-stage performances. Meanwhile, the main feed will spotlight the most exciting and beautiful moments throughout the festival, providing a comprehensive look at the day’s performances. No matter which VALORANT agent you choose to view, the seat you’re in will be the best seat in the house. 

Crown Channel and Riot Games will reveal more details about the festival, including the full talent line-up, in the coming weeks. For all things wwFest:VALORANT, be sure to follow Crown Channel and @PlayVALORANT on Twitter. 

Valorant (formerly known as Project A) is available on PC as free-to-play.
