Bigfest is a sim game where players manage a music festival. The player is in charge of managing everything from the locations of toilets to the bands playing. Players can visit other other players festivals via online play and simply listen to the acts that they've chosed or cause environmental destruction.
The game is integrated with jamendo music catalogue allowing the player to promote real unsigned bands. The game is also launching with a website that allowed intrested bands to submit their music for inclusion. Once a band is in the game their music will be ranked based on the order of the setlists that players create. For instance acts that are constantly being put in supporting acts will be ranked lower than those that are constantly given headline acts. On The Metal hopes that this allows players to discover new music that they normally wouldn't be exposed to.
