History is surely in the making with Hyperplay, an unprecendented event set to take over Singapore Indoor Stadium for a meeting of two worlds that rarely collide: the worlds of esports and live music.

On August 4th and 5th, Hyperplay will set the stage for the region's most talented League of Legends players to represent their respective countries and duke it out in front of thousands of fans.

After an initial series of grueling gameplay rounds in which all 10 ASEAN teams battled it out, the top four teams won their right to play in the final four on August 4 at Hyperplay. In semi-final #1 at 12pm (SGT), it's Team Philippines vs Team Malaysia. Semi-final #2 will see powerhouse Team Vietnam up against hometown faves Team Singapore at 5pm.

On Day 2 (August 5) at 5pm, the two semi-finals winners will go head-to-head to claim victory as the first-ever ASEAN champion!

New to the world of esports? To prep yourselves for the high-octane action this weekend, check out some of the earlier Hyperplay matches from this week that determined how the final four teams emerged.

While fans are familiar with what to expect from an esports tournament or a music festival, what happens when you're attending both?

Should you be decked out in your country's iconic colours? Should you turn up in elaborate cosplay? Should you be wearing your beloved vintage AC/DC t-shirt?

The answer to all of that is a resounding yes!

At Hyperplay, it's all about celebrating unity, sportsmanship and camaraderie, whether if it's cheering your favourite team in the finals, or jumping along together during the MTV Spotlight @ Hyperplay sets.

Let Hanli tell you what to expect (and what you can do to prepare) come Saturday and Sunday — watch the video below to find out more!
