The Sims 4 is set to host an in-game music festival, titled “Sims Sessions,” featuring performances in the fictional Simlish language, EA announced on Thursday.
Headlining the festival is two-time Grammy-nominated pop star Bebe Rexha, who will perform her single “Sabotage” in the native Sims language, while Glass Animals‘ lead singer Dave Bayley and singer-songwriter Joy Oladokun will open the show with English performances.
“I’ve always been a fan of how The Sims empowers players to express their creativity with others in the game,” said Bebe Rexha in a statement. “Sims Sessions will be a fun experience for fans from around the world to enjoy music and hang with friends in a way that only The Sims can offer. I’m so excited to return to the game and also can’t wait to see the fans posting their Simlish videos of ‘Sabotage!’”
In addition to watching musical performances, players will able to maneuver the festival space, run their own craft sales tables, purchase artist-themed merchandise and get some sleep (or “Woohoo”) in one of the festival’s tents. Once the scheduled acts conclude, players will also be able to go on stage and perform themselves.
Meanwhile, Rexha will also partner with popular TikTok music personalities for a virtual #SimlishSessions karaoke challenge, in which users can share side-by-side duets with the artist featuring their own take on the Sims rendition of “Sabotage.”
“Sims Sessions” is scheduled to take place from June 29 to July 7 on The Sims 4.
Elsewhere in gaming, Nintendo has finally responded to rumors surrounding a new Switch device.
