E3 Live to Debut this Year, Open to the Public

The Entertainment Software Association, or ESA, unveiled today a new event called E3 Live. The event will take place alongside the ESA’s E3 event, June 14-16, but will be free to fans and will have games, music, contests and merch from some of the gaming industry’s big companies.

”E3 Live will give gamers the chance to test-drive exciting games, interact with some of their favorite developers, and be among the first in the world to enjoy groundbreaking game experiences,” said Michael D. Gallagher, president and CEO of the ESA. E3 Live will also give fans an opportunity to see Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions, an orchestral concert featuring a bunch of the awesome music from Pokémon. Other companies that will be in attendance include Alienware, Facebook/Oculus, Frito-Lay, HTC Vive, Loot Crate, Monster, Twitch, Ubisoft, and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment. All of which will have gear to buy and things to do.

The event will take place at L.A. LIVE, a venue adjacent to the Los Angeles Convention Center where E3 is happening. 20,000 tickets will be available to the public, but are totally free. Get yours now, right here. Tickets for the main E3 event, though, is still secluded to invite-only.
