DROPZONE – AN EDM FESTIVAL THAT MAKES GAMERS WANT TO BECOME RAVERS

DROPZONE FESTIVAL will be the first festival ever makes every gamer wants to become ravers. Have you ever thought of an EDM festival that combines the music festival model with video game elements and beautiful cinematic content? Let’s find out about Dropzone with EDM Vietnam Community.

DROPZONE FESTIVAL 2018 – THE BEST EDM FESTIVAL IN THAILAND

What sets Dropzone Festival apart as a fresh form of entertainment is that it combines the music festival model with video game elements and beautiful cinematic content. Technical Director Joel Ibañez speaks of the festival as a ‘disruptive approach that could change the landscape of music festivals across the globe.

With its plan to cover five years per destination (this means Bangkok from 2018-2022) following 5 chapters of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi storyline. It aims to become the first ever ‘real-life MMORPG’ party where attendees are offered a gamified layer to their already fun-filled days.

The story so far talks about a fictitious future where attendees are ‘humanity’s last survivors’ gathered for safety in a fortress called Dropzone. Dangerous forces that lurk outside are unidentified, but they are known to be afraid of lights and music – which is the reason for everybody at the festival to ‘rave to survive’When this story ends, Dropzone Festival will appear in a now-undisclosed city of another country, and so on.

The producers have commented that in future years, Dropzone Festival will elevate the festival experience even further with tech-integration and more ways to ‘play’ in terms of interacting with the world it has created. ‘There will be twists and turns, decisions to make, sides to pick, rewards to be had.

Almost everything you can do at the festival make sense in the story of Dropzone; but in eventuality, you’re still at an electronic music festival with your friends! You can just enjoy the party without knowing about the plot if you like,’ states an executive producer of the festival.
