Minecraft has had its share of real-world crossovers, but nothing quite like this. Norway's annual The Gathering tech conference is hosting a live concert both in real life and in Minecraft tonight at 9PM local time (4PM Eastern), with volunteers mimicking the artists in Minecraft as they parade around the stage. And this isn't a small production, either -- AlunaGeorge, Broiler and Lemaitre are on deck, so you should be in for a good time whether you're looking at the real artists or their blocky avatars.

No, it won't come close to replicating the vibe of the real thing, but it might have a more personal feel than watching a run-of-the-mill video stream. Just be aware that this also means limited space. The organizers note that there should only be room for around 2,000 to 3,000 people, so you should probably hop on the Minecraft server ASAP (if you're reading this in time) to have a chance of seeing what all the fuss is about.
