The Platinum selling Spinnin’ Records artist and Heartfeldt label founder Sam Feldt is set to close Avakin Life’s digital music event – the ‘Solar Sounds Festival’ – with one-of-a-kind virtual DJ set.
DJ, producer, entrepreneur and sustainability pioneer Sam Feldt will bring his feel-good sound to a new dimension from July 30 to August 3, when the Dutch music sensation performs on the award-winning mobile social app Avakin Life – a vast, virtual 3D world where music, fashion and digital experiences collide.
Sam will be the headlining act of the Solar Sounds Festival, Avakin Life’s immersive, month-long music festival where more than 7.4M visitors have already partied and socialised inside the metaverse. Sam’s performance will be the biggest in Avakin’s history, bringing his uplifting tracks to a potential audience of more than 1,000,000 from start to finish.
A unique digital avatar, which captures Sam’s status as one of music’s most sought-after electronic artists, will take to the decks and spin a specially commissioned DJ set all day and night at the Solar Sounds Festival Main Stage. Fans can expect proven Sam Feldt favorites, like the undeniable ‘Post Malone (feat. RANI)’ and his recent hit with Sam Fischer, ‘Pick Me Up’, but that’s not all, as the Dutch superstar will also be playing his brand new single, ‘The Riddle’, promising fans a one-of-a-kind experience on Avakin Live.
Sam Feldt fans and Avakins alike can attend the event on their mobile devices for free, where, together with friends and others from around the world, they can:
- – Dance to Sam’s tunes using hundreds of unique animations
- – Pick up exclusive inspired by Sam’s energy and music
- – Take part in daily challenges to unlock free rewards
- – Pose for a photo with Sam in an exclusive VIP space
The Solar Sounds Festival concert is the latest in a series of ground-breaking collaborations between Sam Feldt’s record label, Spinnin’ Records, and Lockwood Publishing Ltd, creators of Avakin Life. The partnership saw the launch of ‘Spinnin’ Sessions’ – a multi-event digital clubbing experience within Avakin Life – in August 2020, where many of Spinnin’ Records’ biggest stars have wowed Avakin’s crowds, including Sam’s fellow Dutch icons Lucas & Steve and Blasterjaxx.
Commenting on Sam’s Solar Sounds Festival performance and the relationship between Avakin Life and Spinnin’ Records, Halli Bjornsson, CEO of Lockwood Publishing, says,
“Festivals are a rite of passage for millions of music lovers every year. It’s crucial to keep those traditions alive, especially when physical events have suffered under Covid. Avakin Life and the Solar Sounds Festival gives fans those iconic experiences they crave, but also connects performers like Sam Feldt with millions of new listeners in ways traditional music events cannot hope to match.
“Since our first event with Blasterjaxx and Spinnin’ Records in early 2020, we’ve fused world-beating dance music with digital experiences that unite artists with the crowd. Sam’s performance is the next landmark moment on that journey. We can’t wait for an artist of Sam’s calibre to end the Solar Sounds Festival and help us create more great memories with our community.”
Ahead of his headlining performance, Sam Feldt adds,
“Online games and communities like Avakin have always been a big part of my life. I still vividly remember attending a digital Gorillaz meet and greet on one of them when I was younger. That had a big impression on me, so to now be able to host a show on Avakin myself is a dream come true. I can’t wait to connect with the Avakin crowd!”
