An ambitious cross-industry event will bring some of the most exciting acts from the international dance music scene and the world of the hit video game Valorant together on 15 January.
Known as"wwFest:Valorant Edition", the experiential festival is a joint-venture between Riot Games, the studio behind Valorant, and Crown Channel, an entertainment channel for pop culture and gaming.
The festival will include livestreamed performances by Grammy-nominated French DJ Madeon, American duo ARMNHMR, 15-year-old producer Moore Kismet, Ookay, and Canadian DJ Whipped Cream — who produced a song for the Birds of Prey soundtrack.
