MetaTrekkers is launching a multi-platform entertainment series to increase brand awareness and attract new users to Decentraland. The BeatTrekkers series 2 and 3 will run for 10 months and will feature DJ battles, concerts, and satellite events. MetaTrekkers aims to increase sustainability and bring in new users to Web3 through carefully planned and executed events.
Previous events hosted by MetaTrekkers include Dubfest, Venice Music, Yossy Concert, and BeatTrekkers 1st series.
- Dubfest was a reggae music festival that celebrated the culture and history of reggae music and brought together the Decentraland community in a vibrant and colorful atmosphere.
- Venice Music was an independent music label that specialized in electronic and dance music. They hosted a series of concerts over ten months, showcasing some of their top artists and providing a platform for new and emerging talent to reach a wider audience. The label was founded by Troy Carter, former manager for artists like Eve, John Legend, and Lady Gaga.
- Yossy is a promising Latin urban music artist with a unique sound and style. He recently performed at the Decentraland concert, reaching a new, niche audience of over 12,000 followers.
- BeatTrekkers 1st series was a web3-based music competition where DJs and artists competed. The competition was designed to bring together the Decentraland community and showcase some of the top talents in the electronic and dance music scenes.
The BeatTrekkers series 2 and 3, which will run for 10 months beginning in May 2023, will feature a range of events and activities, including concerts and DJ battles. The grant size for this project is $186,500. The BeatTrekkers DJ battle will be a central component of the series, with 14 battles planned over the course of the 10 months. The battle will be split into two series, each featuring eight battles and semi-finals and finals round.
In addition to the DJ battles, the series will also feature five concerts, each showcasing an independent artist or Venice Music. The concerts will be held at various venues throughout Decentraland and will be designed to onboard new users to Web3.
MetaTrekkers will also host a number of satellite events throughout the year, with the aim of increasing sustainability and bringing in new users.
