Unlike your typical real life rock concert- where you need to put up with dire sound systems/run the risk of catching dysentery from the toilets/pay over the odds for a simple baguette- a visit to a Second Life festival is usually a more enjoyable (and less muddy) experience. At this time of year, the SL music scene seems to reflect that of real life, and is awash with weekend music events and summer festivals. It can be hard to choose which is actually worth going to see and unfortunately, most are, in fact, nothing more than lacklustre and glorified karaoke style tedium.
But starting on Friday 22nd July and running for a whole, glorious three days, the ‘Shivers Unleashed 2011’ festival will take place with a genuinely spectacular line-up featuring SL’s most credible and talented performers. It’s not often that you see musical acts of this calibre all appear on the same billing, and ‘Shivers Unleashed 2011’ promises to be a virtual event that will be unforgettable. Who needs the expense of Coachella?
See you in the virtual beer tent.
