Set to kick off at 7am Eastern Daylight Savings Time, the concert will actually physically take place at the Hamar Olympic Hall in Norway as part of The Gathering; an annual tech festival. LA-based band Lemiatre and Norwegian producers Broiler are also set to make appearances.

Users have been posting posters and advertising in the game in the lead up to the gig,

There will, oddly enough, be a capacity limit for in-game concert goers due to server space. It is anticipated that there will be two or three thousand people accommodated on the server.
