Video Game Music at Royal Albert Hall!

by Mishaal | Apr 26, 2022

Video game music to those of us that appreciate it, has always been worthy of the best concert halls and locations that the earth has to offer. But, alas, it hasn’t always been that way. In fact, I think that the lack of exposure that video game music gets tends to underscore its popularity. Usually reserved for private listening via people’s iPods, phones, laptops or their Spotify playlists. Video game music hasn’t really been a concert thing. UNTIL NOW.

That’s right. I’m super excited to write about the fact that video game music will be played by a live orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall in London. This is a huge deal for the industry, on many accounts. The fact that it’s a super popular location and the fact that it was covered by The Guardian says a lot about how many more people can be expected to have the opportunity to fall in love with video game music.

The concert that’ll be held on August 1st will be a part of the Proms 2022. The BBC Proms is one of the biggest and most widely covered classical music festivals in England and the hosts were ecstatic to add video game music to the list of genres that they’ll be covering this year.

So, if you are in or around London at the time, this would be a once-in-a-lifetime thing to experience. For the rest of us, we hope we can watch it online somewhere or follow it on social media. Either way, it’ll be big, it’ll be awesome and it’ll be a show to remember. That’s for sure. A big win for the industry.
