Today, leading force in the digital concert movement Mad Zoo Events has announced the full lineup to their Minecraft festival, Stratosfest. Slated for October 23 and 24 with the startup’s most impressive lineup to date, the immersive event will feature a never-before-seen skybound Minecraft realm, live VJ-controlled visuals, and interactive mini-games.
Stratosfest attendees can expect exclusive sets from world class artists including Anjunabeats figureheads Above & Beyond, Flashover Recordings’ Ferry Corsten, global legend ilan Bluestone, progressive trance duo Tritonal, Organized Nature founders Gabriel & Dresden, hit-maker Darude, rising-star Qrion, and mau5trap mainstay ATTLAS. Stratosfest also sheds light on some of the industry’s most talented up-and-comers, with additional sets from Olan, Jordin Post, No Mana, and Hellbound.
Grammy-nominated producer Mat Zo, who is also head of Mad Zoo Events, is treating attendees to a special set with tracks from his much anticipated, full-length album, Illusion of Depth. The album releases October 9th on Anjunabeats, and covers a lot of ground sonically with 90’s warehouse techno, jungle, D&B, filter house, and even cinematic rock.
The Mad Zoo Events team stand as pioneers within the Minecraft event landscape. Statosfest follows the success of the brand’s Mat Zo and Friends, Hospitality: In The Void, and Mad Zoo: In The Void, each of which solidified the team as leaders in developing and executing music experiences on the platform. All three of the events featured live streamed audio from top producers, reality-defying stages, and massive multiplayer infrastructures, which will be built upon for the Stratosfest production.
“Pure luck brought our team together. Everyone’s unique skill sets and experiences have amounted to the dream team. We’re all perfectly suited for this, as artists, gamers, programmers and fans. It all feels like it was meant to be. After producing 3 successful Minecraft festivals, it feels really great to be able to go bigger than I ever dreamt for the 4th edition. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to work with such a skilled team, and with artists who I admire. Every event we put on is a step up from the last, but Stratosfest is by far the biggest step up we’ve taken so far. I can’t wait to share what we have in store for everyone.” – Mat Zo
Mad Zoo Events will continue to partner with one of the most trusted names in gaming and eSports, MSI GAMING, along with the world’s largest music loyalty platform, Unitea, and live event technical solutions company, Cucumber Productions. With these partnerships, Mad Zoo Events have been able to accomplish their ambitious goals in both gaming and music, and will now help bring fans one of the most cutting edge Minecraft festivals ever produced.
Electronic music has been a driving force in shaping festival culture over the last three decades, and as the live event world is radically shaken and re-shaped by COVID-19, Stratosfest will help define what a festival will look like in 2020 and beyond.
