Video game music connoisseurs are certainly in for a treat. First, there was the Genshin Concert Tour for fans of HoYoverse’s open-world adventure, then Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy made a long-awaited return after six years. Hot on their heels is the Stardew Valley Concert Tour, which will bring the music of ConcernedApe’s beloved farming simulator to life.

Titled “Festival of Seasons”, the musical extravaganza will grace certain cities in Canada and the States, London in the U.K., Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, and Seoul and Bangkok in Asia. The U.S. leg kicks off on 17 February 2024 in Los Angeles, with weekly shows scheduled till 10 March.
On 15 and 17 March, the orchestra is set to perform in Toronto and Montreal, before heading to Sydney and Melbourne in April. The concert will make its last non-Asia stop in London on 29 April, with location details and dates pending for Seoul and Bangkok.
The poster serves as a nice little nod to the game, showing an orchestral crew performing in front of Pierre’s General Store. Ticket sales are staggered across the board, running from 13 to 20 October. Per the official event page, the list is as follows (all in the local time of each city):
- U.S., Canada, and U.K.: 13 October (Friday), 10 am
- Melbourne: 13 October (Friday), 11 am
- Sydney: 20 October (Friday), 11 am
- Seoul and Bangkok: TBA
It’s unclear if there will be a second wave of announcements, but one thing’s for sure. With the selection curated personally by Stardew Valley creator ConcernedApe, the concert should be a musical delight for fans from all walks of life. Now that his next game, Haunted Chocolatier, is in the works, perhaps there might even be a bigger concert after its launch. Who knows?
