Revenge Of The Regens: BLOND:ISH And Topia Bring A Plastic-Free Party To NFT NYC

Bye Bye Plastic, BLOND:ISH and Topia are bringing NYC into the 21st century with a plastic-free, NFT party that will be streamed live from the Metaverse.

On June 24, from 12-10PM at the Summer Club, NFTs and sustainability will be the talk of the town. The entire party, entitled “Revenge of the Regens,” is plastic-free and over 3,000 in-person and virtual attendees will see what happens when music enthusiasts and environmentalists come together.

Producers of the event including NBS, StokeNFT, Rose Gold, and University Viral have put in their efforts to support sustainability and technological integration in music. For the first time ever, guests in the metaverse and in-person can converse, transact, and display their verified NFT ownership.

About Revenge of the Regens

The event is the launch and preview of the Revenge of the Regens NFT collaboration between Bye Bye Plastic and BLOND:ISH, bringing awareness to the crypto community on the wasteful behaviors of web2 & web3.

BLOND:ISH will headline at sunset with musical support from Ellina Sukh, Double Trouble, Stello, & Space Tigers – all DJs that have the Bye Bye Plastic Eco-Rider and support the non-profit’s mission.

This event will be a part of the Topia Metaverse and streamed directly onto the interactive platform. The Topia Metaverse is a place where music and NFTs unite so fans worldwide can interact and feel a sense of community. They can buy NFTs, learn about new projects, listen to speakers, play games, and many more.

The metaverse will be available only through PC at topia.io/Topia/regensNFT. Viewers can expect several NFT communities to come together like Psyechedlics Anonymous and Gay Alien Society. Twitch channel Abracadabra will also be live streaming the event.

Tickets and access to the stream are available here.
