Prime Gaming’s Crown Channel and Riot Games announced on Thursday that they would be hosting wwFEST: Unlocked YR1, a cinematic digital music festival celebrating the one-year anniversary of Valorant, Riot Games’ competitive first-person shooter. This comes alongside the first real trailer of the game’s next Agent, KAY/O.
The festival is set to kick off on June 25 at 9 a.m. PDT, and will be headlined by American musician, DJ, and producer Gryffin. Fans looking to check out the festivities can tune into the event on the Crown Channel Twitch and YouTube channels. According to the trailer, it will be a six-hour stream.
Gryffin will be headlining the event, with an opening performance by Aluna that will take place in Los Angeles. The duo won’t be alone, though, as Imanbek will be performing out of Dubai, Unknown Brain will perform live from Germany, and Boombox Cartel will showcase some of his talents live from Mexico. Finally, South Korea will also be represented, with rising talent Justin Oh performing an original song for the festival.
This isn’t the first wwFEST either as wwFEST: Unlocked YR1 is the second iteration of the digital musical festival. The first one was in January 2021 and saw 3 million people tune in to watch the performances of Madeon, ARMNHMR, Moore Kismet, Ookay, and Whipped Cream.
This announcement comes on the same day that Riot announced the game’s next Agent, KAY/O. KAY/O is a robot that can suppress enemy abilities by throwing a “suppression blade” or through its ultimate that affects foes in its proximity. It can also throw flashbangs and frag grenades. KAY/O is coming next week on June 22 right before the stream.
