GAME MUSIC FOUNDATION PRESENTS

GAME MUSIC FESTIVAL VOL. 3

The 2020 edition of the Game Music Festival is here! We are thrilled to invite you to our next event in a new hybrid formula: you can experience each concert live in the National Forum of Music or watch it via online streaming. This year’s lineup is is truly one-of-a-kind, and it will be an artistic delight regardless of how you choose to enjoy it.

Due to the pandemic situation, this year’s festival will take place in a slightly different form. Because of the social distancing rules, there is a strict limit to the number of seats allowed in the concert hall. However, in case you are unable to attend on-site, don’t worry – all performances will be transmitted online! Safety first, but rest assured that our next top priority remains to let you experience the highest artistic and acoustic quality of video game soundtracks played live.

The Symphony of Four Worlds POSTER - Supergiant Games

The Symphony of Four Worlds

Hades, Transistor, Pyre, Bastion

An opus that pays homage to four amazing games: Transistor, Hades, Pyre, Bastion. Each of them has earned a special spot in the hearts of gamers also thanks to the awesome music by Darren Korb whose eclectic style is their common denominator. These diverse soundtracks will be presented live in surprising arrangements by the Sound Factory Orchestra, conducted by Robert Kurdybacha, who delivered incredible performances during previous GMFs. This time they will take the listeners on a journey across the visionary worlds by Supergiant Games.

The Symphony of Sin POSTER - Larian Studios

The Symphony of Sin

Baldur's Gate III, Divinity: Original Sin II

A true delight for all RPG enthusiasts. Fans will hear the world live premiere of music from Baldur’s Gate III, the upcoming continuation of cult classic games set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. Furthermore, the other main ingredient of this event is the soundtrack of Divinity: Original Sin II – the critically acclaimed flagship title by Larian Studios. Both of these were composed by Borislav Slavov, and will be performed live by the seasoned NFM Philharmonic

Behind the scenes

MAKING OF GMF

Back in 2017, we organized the very first big symphonic concert with the music of Heroes of Might & Magic performed live by a full orchestra. The Symphony of Heroes was a huge success, and the positive feedback was overwhelming – so we decided to go even further. Ever since, we have been presenting you with our crown jewel, the Game Music Festival. A fully-fledged festival of this scale dedicated to the soundtracks of video games is a truly unique event not only in Europe.
Take a look at the videos below to see how we made dreams come true.

The Venue

National Forum of Music

The quality of sound and overall artistic value are what really matters for us. Because of that, such a unique festival must take place in a unique venue. Behold the National Forum of Music in Wroclaw – one of the best philharmonic halls in Europe.

THE ACOUSTICS

 

The acoustics of the NFM is absolutely tremendous. It was designed by Tateo Nakajima, responsible for the Philharmonic Hall in Lucerne, Esplanade in Singapore, Harpa in Reykjavík, La Maison Symphonique in Montreal, Knight Concert Hall in Florida. 

THE QUALITY

 

In the main hall, there are 1800 seats, and in every spot the music can be heard perfectly without the need of amplification. 

THE INSTITUTION

 

NFM is not just a building – it is an institution. We work with outstanding NFM musicians, its managers, orchestra, and choir. Thanks to that we are certain that the performance will be marvelous.
