The Sims to host an in-game music festival – EDM.com


EA Games’ The sims 4 will host an upcoming in-game music festival like no other.

Virtual music festivals featuring many of the world’s greatest artists have landed on Fortnite, Minecraft, and Roblox in recent memory, captivating millions of people in the process. For its part, The sims the franchise as a whole has sold over 200 million copies worldwide, with the game’s latest installment turning out to be EA’s best-selling asset in the series yet. Naturally, it presents fertile ground for hosting highly visible events of a similar caliber.

Prolific singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha is slated to headline the festival, dubbed Sims Sessions, which will also include performances by Glass Animals and Joy Oladokun. According to The edge, the artists will perform some of their tracks in Simlish, the native language of the game. This even includes Rexha, who will perform her single “Sabotage” in the fictional language.

While the idea of ​​listening to a performance in Simlish might sound crazy, it’s a gimmick EA has been following for some time. Artists such as Jason Derulo and Katy Perry have previously recorded Simlish covers of their hit songs. A recent Roomie video compilation highlights some of the many artists who have stepped into the act, such as Jon Bellion, who performed his successful Zedd collaboration “Beautiful Now” into the language.

Fans will have time to witness all the action and purchase collectible game items from performing artists from June 29 through July 7.
