Every year, thousands of gamers, sceners and LANers come to Uppsala to take part in the classic Birdie festival, but this year’s event will be online due to Covid-19. Almost everything we did on site in the IFU Arena we will be able to implement online. During festival days, Birdie 30 will broadcast live and pre-recorded material from ESEN eSports TV studio. E-sport tournaments with finals, the demo scene with fantastic digital creations, funtours on the night, music, film screening together with Uppsala short film festival, photo competition with Uppsala photo festival, concert with the Salongsorkesterm and much more. The goal is to create a nice Birdie feel for all gamers who are isolated at home. This year’s Birdie will be available to everyone and costs nothing to be a part of! In the coming weeks we will release a series of news about competitions, tournaments and activities.
– ”Birdie rises from, the ashes like the Phoenix bird! Cancelling Sweden’s oldest computer festival because of Covid-19 was no alternative, so we are delighted with the support we receive from Uppsala Municipality and from our friends at ESEN eSports that enable us to implement Birdie 30 Online! This year’s festival is the 30th event since its inception in 1993. And we must celebrate it! Right now, all gamers need a little more Birdie in their lives! ” Says Rasmus Karlsson, Chairman of the Birdie Computer Festival.
