“Being an artist isn’t always what it looks like and art isn’t always what it seems”

Building on Afterparty’s founding vision to empower creators with the tools and community to realize their Web3 potential, the festival takes token-gated experiences from the metaverse to real-life. Produced in partnership with former Life is Beautiful partner, Ryan Doherty, and former Kaaboo senior executive, Chris Racan, with leading NFT artists, Nate Mohler and Alec Maassen, as creative directors, this will be the first festival in history where there are no tickets – NFTs unlock access.

“Digital art is just the beginning of how profound NFTs will be for the creator economy,” said David Fields, CEO and Founder at Afterparty. “Afterparty’s NFTs serve as verifiable digital assets that give owners a membership to experience exclusive events and the vibrant community that is Afterparty – the festival brings all of this to life. We believe NFT art deserves its own celebration, to be front and center as the main event. Whether you’re an emerging artist, grammy-winning musician, new to crypto or a veteran collector, Afterparty welcomes you to one of the most creative, diverse and exciting experiences in the world.”

The Afterparty All-Access NFT Collection gives NFT holders artist-level access to the festival. The collection’s 1,500 NFTs are completely unique, exclusively minted in-real-life and live on the Ethereum blockchain forever. They also serve as a “membership” for the Afterparty universe, which includes collaborations and community events at the Hollywood Hills Afterparty House and pop-up experiences at some of the biggest worldwide art and NFT gatherings like Art Basel.

Sia (nine-time Grammy winning artist), jxdn (rockstar and artist Jaden Hossler), Nadya Tolokno (founder of protest musical group Pussy Riot) and Paul Klein (singer of indie band LANY) are among some of the first creators – dubbed the Afterparty “Utopians” – to live-mint the eponymous NFTs at the Afterparty House. Afterparty privately sold its first 100 Utopian NFTs within 24 hours. Starting today, the public can earn or win their spot on the guestlist by heading to the Afterparty website and Discord – pre-sale opens January 20th.

“Being a part of Afterparty’s NFT festival in Las Vegas underscores the need for audio and visual artists to take control of their own careers, outside of the conventional recording, streaming and art industry,“ said Nadya Tolokonnikova, founder of protest art collective Pussy Riot.

“Being an artist isn’t always what it looks like and art isn’t always what it seems,” said rockstar and artist, jxdn (Jaden Hossler). “My life-long commitment to art was inspired by my grandmother’s passion for it, which is still with me today. I’d be doing a disservice to myself and the community if I didn’t engage with the things that inspire me. Afterparty’s team has given me the tools and community to fully embrace NFTs, which has helped me translate my own artistic expressions into something that creates long-term financial security for my family.”
