LOTRO players pull off massive multi-day Winterstock concert

In case you missed it, over the past few days the Lord of the Rings Online community has been running one of the largest  MMORPG player concerts in history. Winterstock V, sponsored by the Lonely Mountain Band kinship on Landroval, has been entertaining crowds with a lineup of 47 player bands performing in front of Thorin’s Hall. Not all at once, you understand. There is a schedule.

Standing Stone Games has been livestreaming the event, but in case you missed it, the studio has archived hours and hours of footage. And guess what? It’s all waiting for you after the break.

It’s really neat to see what players can do with a decade-old music system (plus the coordinated cosmetic outfits add that layer of professional dazzle). Check it out below.

I had a Winterstock playing in the background most of the weekend while I was gaming. Yes it is quite amazing how well these folks use the music system to make some great music and put on a great event.

Going to be interesting to see how they all integrate the fiddle into their sets when it finally arrives
