Rising to the challenge of providing human interaction during unprecedented times, Thunder Studios, the entertainment production facility based out of Long Beach, California, presents Cyberwurld, the ultimate New Year’s Eve celebration. The worlds of music, technology and gaming will meld together to create a FREE virtual global party complete with performances by some of today’s biggest names in music.
Coming fresh off of his much-anticipated sophomore album release Whole Lotta Red, American rapper Playboi Carti will be this year’s headliner, performing and ringing in the New Year with audiences worldwide. This exclusive Cyberwurld performance, the musician’s first time on a stage since his album drop on December 25th, is sure to give attendees a first-time live look at his new music.
Virtually joining Playboi Carti on Cyberwurld’s stages will be some of this year’s most viral artists including $NOT, Sada Baby, Jasiah, Popp Hunna, ilyTOMMY, Lil Eazzyy Bktherula, Sparoh and Ken Car$on.
Widely known for pulling on his sweatshirt drawstrings as far as they can go, $NOT has seen massive success across TV and social media. His single Billy Boy was used in season one of HBO’s mega-hit show Euphoria, which is executive produced by Drake. $NOT’s other single Gosha can be heard as the soundtrack of viral videos on TikTok.
Sada Baby’s charismatic personality and drive to succeed has yielded results over recent years. The Detroit rapper was ready to give up his musical career before he won a rap competition in 2016, beating out twelve fellow musicians.
Ohio-born Jasiah is not one to be boxed-in to the constraints of one genre. His debut album Jasiah I Am exemplifies his range and is a collection of all of his layers.
Popp Hunna’s mega-hit Adderall (Corvette Corvette) has gone viral as the soundtrack to the newest TikTok dance performed by some of the biggest names on the video-sharing app.
ilyTOMMY, the artist formerly known as haroinfather, introduced his new stage name in 2020 to reflect the creative within. He has since released three hit singles under the new moniker.
Lil Eazzyy’s debut album Underrated, which dropped November 2020, has already garnered massive attention. His single Onna Come Up, which catapulted him onto the center stage, has already been streamed over thirty-five million times on Spotify.
Fellow Atlanta native Bktherula has gained a cult following from her early singles. She followed up the success with her debut album Love Santana, which dropped early this year.
Sparoh’s sound is a fusion of melodic trap and pop-punk resulting in music that is on par with her bold persona.
Atlanta native Ken Car$on burst onto the scene as a multifaceted creative and entrepreneur. He is currently signed to Opium, Playboi Carti’s label.
Thunder Studios, a vertically integrated, full-service broadcast production studio, has already delved into the realm of virtualizing live events to accommodate the state of the world, with the 2020 Burning Man festival as an early example. Cyberwurld, to be live-streamed globally on Twitch TV on New Year’s Eve, will be a free and completely virtual music festival where concertgoers can attend via avatar, explore the online world and watch as their favorite artists live-stream their shows to the virtual stages created within the space.
The first of its kind, the inaugural New Year’s festivities will kick-off at 8PM PST on Thursday, December 31st live on Twitch. Attendees can experience five hours of uninterrupted musical performances, across two stages, on cyberworld.com and twitch.tv/thundergamingla.
