What is the Electric Blockaloo Minecraft Festival?
Electric Blockaloo Minecraft Festival is an EDM festival that takes place in the Minecraft world. Hundreds of artists will be performing in virtual venues created in Minecraft.

Who will be hosting the different stages?
Stage hosts include A-Track’s Fool’s Gold, Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream, ZHU PRESENTS: BLACKLIZT, Nicole Moudaber’s In The Mood and Claptone’s Masquerade. Catch A-Trak, Bingo Players, Boogie T, Borgore, Diplo, Dirty Bird, Jamie Jones, Lee Burridge, Zhu, Steve Aoki, and more.
Who came up with this idea?
The CEO of Rave Family, Jackie McGuire, came up with the idea while reflecting on the COVID-19 crisis. She knew many of her favorite festivals such as Electric Forest would, unfortunately, be canceled. “Wouldn’t it be so fun if we could create Electric Forest inside Minecraft and get all our friends to come?” With this, the idea for Electric Blockaloo was created.
How do you get a ticket for access to the event?
To attend the event you need to obtain a guest list shared by an artist or buy a GA or VIP pass for full access to all of the Minecraft servers. VIP tickets will give you access to exclusive Discord servers and other goodies like exclusive releases. If you have a Minecraft account already you can use either the Java or Bedrock version of the game. Head to their website here for more detailed instructions on downloading Minecraft, getting on the guest lists, and purchasing add-ons! Tickets start at just $10.
What else will the festival be offering?
