It’s hard to believe, but Nintendo’s perfect pink puff Kirby is officially 30 as of this year. Nintendo isn’t just celebrating with a new game, though. Beyond this month’s launch of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, fans will be able to get in on the party with the Kirby 30th Anniversary Music Fest event, which will be held at Tokyo Garden Theater on August 11.
Don’t worry about getting any FOMO for this one, because the concert will stream live around the world for free. The live stream is currently set for the Kirby Portal Official Channel on YouTube starting at 6:00pm Japan Time on August 11, and an archive will be available for a limited time.
The one-time-only music festival will feature a large big band-style ensemble of 35 musicians performing in a variety of genres. Celebrate all things Kirby with original medleys of classic songs, as Kirby himself gets down at the venue on a large LED monitor.
Meet the band that’ll be comin’ at ya:
