Blizzard 25th & Diablo 20th Anniversary Party
Update (10/28): Hold the door—there’s more! We’re pleased to announce that special guest Kristian Nairn—DJ, electronic music producer, and actor—will be in the DJ booth getting the good vibes going for all the party people. Be sure to show us your best Warcraft /dance moves . . . but please don’t break a leg!
25 years ago, a small group of gamers set out to create the kinds of game experiences they loved playing—and Blizzard Entertainment was born. Since then, the team at Blizzard has transported millions of people around the world to fantastic worlds of fantasy and science fiction—including Diablo’s Sanctuary, which first invited players to descend into the terrifying labyrinth beneath the Tristram Cathedral 20 years ago in 1996!
Please join us in celebrating these anniversaries on Friday, November 4 from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. in the Grand Plaza outside the Anaheim Convention Center during BlizzCon 2016. This event is open to everyone, whether you’re attending the convention or just happen to be in the neighborhood, and admission is free. We’ll also have some great food, special anniversary-themed drinks, entertainment—and even a surprise or two.
An Epic Night of Live Music[edit | edit source]
