Toronto, CA, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RARE.Store, a joint venture between GDA Group & Nightshift, a marketplace for iconic non-fungible tokens (NFTs), is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Festival Land. The agreement grants RARE.Store the opportunity to control LAND inside Decentraland's Festival Land to produce live-streamed events and other metaverse experiences.

RARE.Store will be working with leading musicians, artists, and entertainers, providing turnkey solutions for producing online Metaverse concerts and festivals. Through this arrangement, Festival Land will accelerate the global access to top-tier music experiences for their community and introduce Decentaland to millions of people and thousands of new users.

"We are excited to work with James Ashton and the Festival Land team to create meaningful experiences inside Decentraland.
