Games Music Festival - 3rd Edition - Dates and concerts announced

 

Due to the current pandemic situation, this year’s festival will take place in a slightly different form. Because of the physical distancing rules, there will be a strict limit to the number of seats allowed in the concert hall. However, in case you are unable to attend on-site, don’t worry: all performances will be transmitted online.

 

Therefore, the festival will have a new hybrid formula: you can buy tickets to experience each concert live, or watch them via online streaming for free. Safety first, but with the top priority of experiencing the highest artistic and acoustic quality of video game soundtracks played live, as it is usual at the Game Music Festival.

 

CONCERTS

The festival pivots around two main thematic concerts, which under the common name of “Symphony”, will deliver specially re-imagined whole and long concerts suites, respecting the quality, entity, and soul of the original music of the videogames they’re based on, being built from scratch for this edition of the festival. This is something that makes Game Music Festival different from other festivals, and it is delivered in a scale that we haven’t seen in any other place.

 

The Symphony of Four Worlds (16/10/2020 – 20:00-22:00h)

This concert presents an opus that pays homage to four games: Transistor, Pyre, Hades, Bastion. Each of them has earned a special spot in the hearts of gamers, also thanks to the music by Darren Korb, whose eclectic style is their common denominator. These diverse soundtracks will be presented live in surprising arrangements by the Sound Factory Orchestra conducted by Robert Kurdybacha, who delivered great performances during previous editions of the festival. This time they will take the listeners on a journey across the visionary worlds by Supergiant Games.

The Symphony of Sin (17/10/2020 – 20:00-22:00h)

This concert will be a true delight for all RPG enthusiasts, where fans will hear the world live premiere of music from Baldur’s Gate III, the upcoming continuation of cult classic games set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. The other main ingredient of this event is the soundtrack of Divinity: Original Sin II – the critically acclaimed flagship title by Larian Studios. Both of these were composed by Borislav Slavov, and will be performed live by the seasoned NFM Philharmonic.
