In celebration of Valorant’s one year anniversary event, Yr1, Riot Games have partnered up with Amazon’s Crown Channel one more to bring us wwFest Valorant: Unlocked.
After the success of the first wwFest Valorant stream, Riot Games have brought the “experimental music and art” festival back as part of their Valorant Yr 1 festivities!
Promising an evening full of exciting artsy action, the event has artists performing “artists performing around the world,” and promises a mysterious appearance from an “all-new headliner.”
Fancy tuning in? Then we have everything you need to know about this very different event right here.
The festival will air live on June 25 at 9AM PST/ 12PM EST/ 5PM BST/ 6PM CEST on Amazon’s Twitch channel, Crown, as well as their YouTube. We’ve embedded the Crown Channel’s Twitch stream below to make life a little easier for you.
Headlining the festival this time around is chart-topping house artist GRYFFIN. With his critically acclaimed album Gravity topping Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic albums chart, we can’t wait to see what he’ll bring to wwFest Valorant.
Other artists include Aluna, Justin Oh, Imanbek, Unknown Brain, and DJ act Boombox Cartel. A mysterious “special guest” will also be making an appearance.
The full event schedule can be seen below.
For those of you who missed the last wwFest, we’ve got a breakdown of everything you need to know right here.
Each musical artist has been assigned a specific Agent, and their setlist is based around that character’s personality. For example, Whipped Cream strutted down the stage with a powerful Reyna set that included dark and eerie tones mixed with vibrant electronics. This event’s Agents are yet to be announced.
As musicians come and go, a host of underground artists take the stage to show off their talents. Last time around one graffiti specialist painted a stunning phoenix as a shout-out to the fan-favorite English Agent.
