Astro Arcade is where the intersection of esports, gaming, and music comes alive. Few things go better together than electronic music and this digital universe, so whether it is a game soundtrack by our favorite artists or a virtual in-game concert series, Astro Arcade is here to keep players and listeners alike informed as these worlds continue to collide.
In honor of Riot Games‘ one-year anniversary of its first-person shooter game, VALORANT, the publisher is teaming up with Crown Channel to host the digital festival wwFest: Unlocked YR1.

There will also be a special guest appearance by Dancing Astronaut Artist to Watch in 2021 Imanbek. Set locations include Los Angeles, South Korea, Dubai, Mexico, and Germany, which were picked to reflect the expansive world of VALORANT.
