Games Gig livestream to replace live show because of lockdown

Tune in ('cause Melburnians will be stuck at home anyway.)!

Games Gig, Freeplay’s official Thursday night indie afterparty, will now be livestreamed because of Melbourne’s ongoing COVID-19 lockdown.

Running for approximately one hour, the show will start at 7.00 pm AEST this Thursday, 10 June over on YouTube. We’ve embedded the livestream below.

As reported earlier, the event will feature music from four local artists: Monster Mansion, Maize Wallin, River Boy and Allison Walker.

“We will be playing highlights from our sets, taking turns with each song, so make sure to join us from the start to catch it all,” Monster Mansion (Jacob Leaney) said on Twitter.

Those who purchased tickets for the live event should soon receive an email with information about refunds.

The Freeplay Independent Games Festival 2021 takes place over 8-13 June. For more information, head here.
