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:

Announcing Secondfest!

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.

  1. Crikey, that’s good. How the heck are you going to deal with the inevitable “more than 40 people, whoops there goes the sim!” problem? πŸ™‚

  2. Well they had better get it sorted by the time Strangefates take to the stage at 10am SLT /6pm GMT on the Sunday cause they always fill the sim! πŸ™‚
