The ninth annual ROBstock festival will feature 20 hours of music, poetry and storytelling from the hypergrid’s top performers next month on 3rd Rock Grid.
TheÂ ROBstock Festival of Music and Literature is organizedÂ byÂ The 3RD Rock Foundation and CommunityÂ toÂ raise money in support of the grid charity forÂ MÃ©decins Sans FrontiÃ¨resÂ (Doctors Without Borders),Â and will take place on Saturday, March 5 and Sunday March 6.
TheÂ event will feature a numberÂ of the hypergrid’s top performers, includingÂ Torben Asp, Scofi Robson, Russell Eponym, RoseDrop Rust, Deelah Halostar, Joaquin Gustav, MadMax Huet, Kitzie Lane and Harmonia Trefoil,Â organizer Zinnia Frenzy told Hypergrid Business
“It’s an impressive line up,” she said. “We are very lucky on 3rd Rock GridÂ as people ask to play as they enjoy the event, as well as it being a very deserving cause. I just mention it to one artist and it fills within a week.”
Participants can take part by creating an avatarÂ onÂ the 3RD Rock GridÂ and using a dedicated gate on the grid’s Welcome Center,Â or by teleporting directly to grid.3rdrockgrid.com:8002:RobStock from any other hypergrid-enabled world.Â
DonationsÂ can be made in-world in the local currency, Geodes or via the Just Giving website.
“We would like to do our best to help them continue with their work both in the Third World and Europe,” said Frenzy. “So join us over the weekend for some amazing music and storytelling. All the artists are performing free of charge and their tips going to this charity.”
The non-profitÂ 3RD Rock Foundation and CommunityÂ raised a total of US$2,000 from two ROBstock events last year.
