If you’ve heard a lot about Dogecoin this year, you aren’t the only one. From Axe making it into a body spray, to Elon Musk launching it as the “first meme in space” and Oscar Mayer successfully selling 10-pack ‘Hotdoge’ wieners for US$15,001, it’s been everywhere. Now, Dogecoin is set to become an even bigger part of pop culture with the inaugural ‘Dogepalooza’ festival.
The event has been described as “an authentic, community-driven” one. Its first installation will take place at the Constellation Field in Sugar Land, Texas, on October 9, with the organizers planning to expand it to “multiple cities and countries around the globe.”
While the full lineup has yet to be released, iconic soul singer Dionee Warwick has been announced as one of the festival’s first headliners. According to NME, her son, Damon Elliott, will also appear with a performance, alongside acts by DJ Nomad and pianist Chloe Flower.
Tickets to Dogepalooza are already on sale, with general admission costing US$125 and VIP passes going for US$300. The tickets can be purchased using—of course—Dogecoin, but organizers do mention that “all currencies are encouraged and welcome” at the event.
