Want to enjoy all the benefits of a festival, without ever leaving the house?
HABBO, the largest online teen community in the world, has launched HABBOPALOOZA.com, the first ever virtual music festival, exclusively for teens. To kick things off world-renowned superstars Backstreet Boys hosted a competition for fans to win the chance to join the audience of an exclusive Google+ Hangout in London. Also joining the star-studded line-up is brand new boy band and Lawson support act Room 94, who are taking a break from their headline U.K. and European Tour to stream an acoustic set live and give fans a chance to chat to them afterwards.
Unlike normal festivals, HABBOPALOOZA will run for an entire month and fans will not only be able to watch their favorite acts perform but can interact with them via live Q&A sessions and special exclusive events and premieres. The festival line up is full of star acts and HABBO users will have unprecedented access to them.
The festival also features a stage exclusively dedicated to users, as HABBO look to launch a music career. Users can join their idols in the lineup by posting their very own musical performances on YouTube and submitting them on HABBO, where successful entries will be shown to the crowds. In true X-Factor style, the HABBO team and HABBO users will judge video entries to find the next musical sensation. The winner of the global talent contest will win a fully integrated worldwide ad campaign across HABBO's 12 websites, with branded rooms in each hotel, reaching 3.3 million active users.
The virtual event has everything you would expect from the biggest and best festivals across the world. The camping area offers users a tent to sleep in but with no risk of getting soaked in heavy rain or overheating in sky-high temperatures. There is no risk of missing out on the headliners because of the crowds, everyone will have the best seats in the house, and festival goers can visit food carts or chill out areas between live acts to chat and make friends.
With more acts to be confirmed throughout the month long festival and new opportunities for users to get involved HABBOPALOOZA is set to be the biggest music event for teens in the world this summer.
New users can sign up easily and for free, simply visit www.habbo.com.
