What you need to know
- Minecraft is the world's most popular game, and has been an invaluable tool in the last few months.
- Now, Mad Zoo Events and MSI are teaming up to hold an all-day event inside of Minecraft.
- The event will see players building and interacting with each other in an underwater Minecraft world.
- There will also be featured artists and musicians playing live, and releasing new music.
Minecraft is home to an endless number of creative worlds and servers, and now one more unique realm can make that same claim. Mad Zoo Events, Hospital Records, and MSI (yes, that MSI are teaming up to hold an all-day event inside a custom-built Minecraft world called Hospitality in the Void. The event will be fully interactive, where players can build, play games, shop for new merch and in-game items, and socialize with each other.
The headliner for this all-day event, however, is the music. Ten different artists will perform live during the event, and even debut new music releases and more. The artist lineup won't be announced until August 10, 2020, but we do at least know that Mat Zo, a Grammy-nominated artist, will be present at the event.
Hospitality in the Void will be held on August 22, 2020, and begin at 9 am ET, or 6 am PT. If you're interested, you can buy a ticket early starting at $10 on the Mad Zoo Events homepage. There are optional upgrades to gain access to virtual meet and greets, dedicated servers, and more. The event will also feature a live chat, with party systems so that friends can attend the event together.
This is not the first time a musical festival has been held inside a game, but it never gets any less interesting to see happen. Are you planning to attend the festival? Let us know in the comments below!
A gaming masterpiece
Available everywhere you play.
Minecraft is an inarguable and complete success. It has sold copies in the hundreds of millions, has a huge following of dedicated players, and lets you unlock your every creative desire. It's also available on every platform imaginable, including Xbox One, Windows 10, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Play with anyone, and play anywhere.

Hospital Records are incredible, but holding a dance party in Minecraft feels like the most dull thing ever. What do you do, mash spacebar for four hours? I guess there are the other events going on at least
Not at all! I'm on the team and we've built a visual effect system that allows for an extensive and extensible time-coded visual show synced up with the artists performing their sets on stage. We're also putting a ton of effort into making the whole world and experience as unique and entertaining as possible, for instance you can dress up, dance, explore the world, build stuff with the community in the campgrounds (and oh boy did they build crazy cool things already!!) or consume "enhancements" which can really blow your mind (or mess you up, of you take too many lol), adding to the Rave experience. If you're interested - this is our second event, and people really loved the first one. Just search for #MZAF on Twitter to get an impression! Also, @ the Windows Central team, we're actually announcig the lineup on August 6th, exactly one week after the event announcement! :)
