Live365 Partners with Fantasy Faire 2022 for Second Consecutive Year

For the second year in a row, Live365 has signed on as an official media partner for Fantasy Faire - a benefit for the American Cancer Society - which is set to take place April 21 to May 8 this year.

The benefit, which aims to help build a world without cancer, is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, role-players, and performers in the virtual world of Second Life®. Last year, the benefit was one of the most successful Relay For Life fundraising teams worldwide, ranking in the top 20.

Starting April 21, users will be able to enter Fantasy Faire 2022 and treat themselves to shopping, dance and theater performances, auctions, art galleries, a Literary and Film Festival, and more - all in the name of supporting the American Cancer Society. The fantasy avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, and exclusive items that will be available for purchase were designed by over 250 of Second Life’s top Fantasy Creators.

Throughout Fantasy Faire 2022, Fantasy Faire Radio on will provide the soundtrack for users exploring the Fairelands, with music from blockbuster fantasy films along with a rich variety of world music traditions. Live at the Fairechylde will be another soundtrack option this year, with DJs spinning an upbeat, eclectic mix of music, including classic rock, club mixes, jazz, blues, and pop hits. In 2021, more than 30,000 unique listeners tuned in from over 150 countries around the world to get the full Fantasy Faire experience.

"We're deeply grateful to have the support of Live365," said Scott Simpson, the founder and co-director of Fantasy Faire. "All the great, epic fantasy stories address the theme of how much good can be done when we work together. This alliance with Live365 adds a lot of positive energy to our quest to rid the world of cancer."

“Live365 is, again, proud to be an official media partner for Fantasy Faire's benefit for the American Cancer Society in Second Life this year," said Live365 General Manager Jason Stoddard. "The team at Fantasy Faire raised a record amount of donations last year and we are hoping we can do our share to help them set a new record in 2022. Their dedication and hard work in helping fight cancer is humbling and Live365 is honored to support that effort.”

Fantasy Faire 2022 will open Thursday, April 21. Once the benefit begins, head to this page to find the SLurls to the Fairelands and tune in to Fantasy Faire Radio for the soundtrack to your experience.
