OSFest 2022 has successful first weekend

OSFest 2022 had a well-attended first weekend with 36 hours of performances in genres ranging from poetry and prose to techno music.

“OSFest 2022 kickoff weekend was both a success and a lot of fun,” said OSFest director Shelenn Ayres in a blog post. “Attendance was excellent with no one reporting any large issues.”

Stages were also quickly reconfigured and improved based on avatar feedback, said Ayres.

Livestreams of events were on YouTube and are now available on the official OSFest YouTube playlist.

The new custom streaming service simulcasted performer streams to all four event regions and the main parcels in the Welcome and HG-Welcome regions without any issues. Next weekend, OSFest will simulcast the streams to the main parcels in other regions across the grid so visitors can enjoy performances while visiting exhibits and shopping.

OSFest has deployed a new OS-aware integrated grid calendar both in-world and embedded on the OSFest 2022 website.

OSFest also plans to release a fully integrated destination guide and teleport system in the near future.

You can always get around the grid by using the viewer world map, landmarks, and OpenSimWorld.

A good way to get your bearings is to join the public OSFest group by clicking on any of the pink group joiner objects.  You can also join the OSFest Discord here.

OSFest 2022 goes until July 25, 9 p.m. Pacific time.
