The number one branded music experience on Roblox is Gamefam’s latest release, Festival Tycoon. The Festival Tycoon Experience is an official release on behalf of The Chainsmokers, Columbia Records and Sony Music Entertainment.
Festival Tycoon surpassed 18 million views in less than a month. Players can create their own music festivals, complete with pyrotechnics, merchandise booths, backstage VIP areas, carnival rides and more.
The Chainsmokers Concert Experience, which celebrated the launch of Festival Tycoon, became the highest rated concert of all time in Roblox history.
“We set out to create this unique experience at Festival Tycoon to thrill a massive audience around the world, and we’re blown away by the reception,” said Joe Ferencz of Gamefam. “This was a true collaboration from all sides, resulting in an incredible experience for fans and the community that became a part of history and is helping to pave the way for the future of truly engaging entertainment that can only be find in the metaverse. .”
Festival Tycoon is above 90% (91.6%, to be specific) in terms of player ratings. The concert itself has a positive player rating of 84.2%. Compared to the next most popular experience and concert, it’s not even close. Festival Tycoon and The Chainsmokers are in a completely different league.
The Chainsmokers Concert Experience, to get some perspective, has 24.4 million lifetime views at the time of this writing. Not exactly the Roblox concert with the highest views. That record goes to Lil Nas X, with 36.9 million lifetime views.
Travis Scott’s 2020 Fortnite tour drew over 27 million players. 78 million players took the time to watch Ariana Grande’s Fortnite concert. The Chainsmokers may not be at the top of the entire metaverse, but they are certainly up there and in esteemed company.
Those numbers are not feasible in the real world.
You’re not going to fit 24.4 million people into a concert. Even if you ignore all the health reasons we currently need to consider, you just can’t make those numbers happen. The Philippine Arena in Bulacan is one of the largest concert halls in the world. It has a maximum capacity of 55,000 attendees.
The Chainsmokers would have to perform at a sold-out Philippine Arena every day for fifteen months to beat Roblox’s numbers.
