Secondfest – wellies not required
Those who braved the rain and mud at Glastonbury this weekend should just about have dried-out in time for Secondfest, a three-day virtual music festival in Second Life – running from 6pm GMT (10am SLT) on Friday June 29th to midnight GMT on Sunday July 1st.
Organised by The Guardian and Intel, the festival will feature live music from both offline and online performers, plus theatre, ballet and cinema. The ‘offline’ headliners are Groove Armada and the Pet Shop Boys, while the line-up of SL performers includes Doubledown Tandino and Slim Warrior.
For more information, you can take a look at the festival website – complete with the usual blogs, downloadable festival map, and ‘survival guide’, plus some tragically unsubtle promotion of the latest Intel processor. You can also find a Secondfest page on MySpace and sign-up for live festival tweets from the Secondfest twitter feed.
