Will you be joining the alien invaders this weekend by tuning in to the Countdown Virtual Rave-A-Thon on YouTube and Twitch?


If you didn’t have plans for the weekend already to catch one of the many livestreams taking place (and you better not be leaving your damn house unless you’re essential, seriously, don’t do it, we’re watching you), then you’re in luck! Why? Well after seeing such a positive response to Virtual Beyond experience this past weekend Pasquale has announced that the Countdown Rave-A-Thon is here to satiate your cravings for electronic beats.

Much like the Beyond Wonderland Rave-A-Thon, Pasquale and the Insomniac crew have curated a lineup of top-tier artists for two nights of fun in an undisclosed location in LA. From 8pm to 12am on March 27-28, #VirtualCountdown will feature house stylings from Sacha Robotti, SNBRN, and Sage Armstrong, bass vibes from Flosstradamus, Tisoki, and Medasin, and sets from Mat Zo and i_o that you simply can’t miss out on.

Of course, the star of the show who we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for is DISINFECTO, the hero we all need in these uncertain times. Stay tuned because more updates and specific set times will be arriving ahead of the weekend. Oh, and let us know where you’ll be tuning in from in the comments!

Follow Countdown on Twitter for the latest updates and make sure you’re following Insomniac Events on YouTube and Twitch so you can get a reminder the moment the streams go live!
