Second Life’s SecondFest
Whew. I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, and it’s been distracting me from any work I’d be able to write about here, so it’s only fair to keep you updated on what it is that’s made me absent for so long:
Secondfest is a virtual three-day music festival inside Second Life realised by The Guardian and Intel, featuring live music from offline and online performers, theatre, ballet, cinema, animation and general chaos. It kicks off Friday 29 June at 6pm GMT (10am SLT) and rocks and rolls until midnight (GMT) Sunday night.
Five mega stages!

Characters, chaos and wandering minstrels! Rocky Horror and Ballet! Theatre! Human Mazes! Secret Stages!
Nine sims of festival entertainment.
