Festival Exclusive Emotes & Wearables
Decentraland announced that there are going to be emotes and wearables that are going to be exclusive to the music festival. Wearables have been one of the strong suits of Decentraland, while emotes are a relatively new arrival to the metaverse platform. In their blog post regarding the Decentraland Metaverse Music Festival, they mentioned emotes and wearables:
“A music festival is nothing without outrageous and colorful festival wear & sick dance moves. You can be sure that MVMF will have both in the form of Wearables and Emotes! Since Emotes entered the Creator market in September, Decentraland’s Marketplace has been flooded with almost 200 Emotes, and plenty of them are just what you’ll be looking for on the dance floor.”
The Unique Setting
When Decentraland shared the news about the Metaverse Music Festival, they also gave a small preview of one of the stages that is going to be in the festival while mentioning some others. According to their words, the stages are going to be one of the cornerpieces of the general visual spectacle of the festival. They said:
“The festival will feature 15 completely different and unique stages set against a cyberpunk landscape being overgrown by nature. A mystical Tower of Babel will stand over everything, filling the ears of anyone who approaches with languages from around the world, symbolizing the unifying power of music. The event will also include the deployment of numerous new experiences to explore, such as Follow the Rabbit, Take the Blue Pill, Portaloo, The Backstage Pass Quest, and more. Just walking the festival grounds should be an experience in itself!”
