Get Down With Some Kirby Tunes This Summer

This summer, a special live music festival titled the Kirby 30th Anniversary Music Fest will take place online for fans to enjoy. The stream is set to be available in most countries, meaning Western Kirby fans will be able to partake in the stream alongside Japanese fans.

There’s no charge for the stream, which is set to take place on August 11 at 6 PM JST, which is 2 AM PT and 5 AM ET, and will happen on the Kirby Portal YouTube page. The festival will feature a big-band ensemble of 35 musicians, all performing famous Kirby tracks in a plethora of different genres.

For more information, check out the teaser video below, as well as the official website for the event, which has further details in English:

This announcement comes shortly before the March 25 release of the much-anticipated Switch title, Kirby and the Forgotten Land. You can check out our video preview for the demo below, which we definitely enjoyed.

In our full written preview, we said that “Kirby and the Forgotten Land is proving to be a prime example of what makes the Kirby series so addictive. The well-paced level design, player agency with power-ups, and sense of continual comfort are excellently depicted in 30-minutes. If the full game matches the level of quality that these stages and boss battle boast, then I’m fully strapped in.”
