From November 16 to 18, 2023, Decentraland welcomes the third edition of its Music Festival, #DCLMF23. The festival this year promises three days of radical self-expression, artistic renewal, and community growth.
Unlike its predecessors, #DCLMF23 turns the spotlight exclusively on Decentraland and its dynamic community. Participants are encouraged to fully immerse themselves in over 80 performances, games, and activities that will change the virtual world’s perception of music.
There will be tons to do during the three days of the Decentraland Music Festival ’23, including attending live acts and engaging with interactive musical installations. It’s free, open to all, and no VR headset is required!
Digital Headliners and Immersive Experiences
The lineup boasts headlining sets by OG digital pioneers such as Cora Novoa, Trick Daddy, GuccieToe, Bufalo, Glitch Rave, Steve Sai, and more. Five main stages and 15 immersive games and interactive music experiences ensure a unique sensory experience. Explore an interactive music river, add to a group art tower, take on a boss to recover stolen music from a medieval village, or search for wearables in a virtual Neo-Techno Paganist rave — the possibilities are just as diverse as the metaverse itself.
