Gaming fans mark your calendars. OMEN and HYPEBEAST are hosting OMEN Underground, a virtual live stream panel and gaming tournament that explores how gaming has transcended its historic boundaries into the wider world of contemporary culture. The event will feature a stacked lineup, including a live DJ set, a HYPETALKS discussion, a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater face off and product giveaways. The activation will bring together notable names and enthusiasts across esports, music, fashion and skating for an evening of programming that intersects various communities and shows off the power of OMEN laptops, which are known for their elevated design.
OMEN Underground will kick off on Wednesday, June 24 at 6 p.m. EDT with an exclusive DJ set from Toro y Moi. Following this, Jeff Staple will host a panel-style conversation, featuring FaZe Clan member FaZe Nikan and Daryl Butler, HP’s head of marketing for US consumer personal systems. The three will discuss the intersection of culture and gaming, bridging the gap between “traditional” niche gaming and the increasingly ubiquitous nature of gaming. To round out the event, skaters Ishod Wair, Lizzie Armanto and Leticia Bufoni will face off in a nostalgia-fueled Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 tournament. Even more reason to tune in, HYPEBEAST and OMEN are giving away an OMEN 15 with 10th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors to get you equipped with everything you need to take your gaming experience to the next level.
