On the last evening, the concert hall becomes a gaming den featuring game engines as tools in the hands of artists. During the first part of the evening, artists will present live performances of their VR and game applications. Then comes the Great Festival Showdown: in each round, two teams composed of gamers, DJs and VJs face off in a media theory duel pitting folk music against breakbeats. The teams will be recruited during the Festival. Registration site and training area is the electrolobby. Join up!
