A brand-new Dogecoin-inspired festival called Dogepalooza will kick off later this year.
With a line-up that includes the likes of Dionne Warwick, the inaugural event will take place in Sugar Land, Texas, on October 9.
Prospective guests can purchase tickets using Dogecoin, but the festival reassured those less familiar with cryptocurrency that “all currencies are encouraged and welcome at Dogepalooza.”
The Next Step For Dogecoin
Tickets for Dogepalooza are now on sale, costing $125 for general admission, and $300 for a VIP ticket. Tickets for children aged 4-12 cost $50.
Dogepalooza has 5000 tickets available, including 500 VIP tickets, with VIPs receiving an exclusive NFT with their tickets.
Grammy Award-winning singer Dionne Warwick will be joined at Dogepalooza by Grammy Award-winning producer Damon Elliot, and American pianist Chloe Flower. More artists and performers will be announced in the future, with the festival’s site stating: “Entertainment artists are TBD but will be Much WOW.”
Aside from live entertainment, Dogepalooza will include “educational venues for learning more about how to use, accept, and understand Dogecoin.”
The Dogepalooza shop lists various Doge-related merchandise, with an NFT store also ‘Coming Soon’.
The festival organisers hope to turn Dogepalooza into a “world-wide event”, eventually spanning multiple cities and countries.
This comes after a trademark filed in May for Dogepalooza circulated online earlier this year. News of the trademark caught the attention of self-described Dogefather Elon Musk, who tweeted it “Sounds kinda fun.”
Dogecoin is one of the most notable ‘memecoins’ that saw a meteoric rise in early 2021. After reaching a price high of $0.7376 in May, it currently sits at $0.279 - up 39.17% since last week.
