EA Play 2017 FanFest lineup and events revealed


Instead of being front and center at this year’s E3, EA is off doing their own thing again. And their own thing,
the EA Play 2017 FanFest in Hollywood, CA, is sounding pretty great. And no, we’re not talking about the entertainment, which happens to feature Nas, DJ Green Lantern and Dave East.

There will be quite a few new titles and content on hand including the new Need for Speed, Madden NFL, Star Wars Battlefront II, NBA Live and more.  There will be over 140 stations to keep players busy.

EA is still handing out free FanFest tickets, which takes place from Saturday, June 10th through Monday June 12th right here.  Check out the announcement below.

Electronic Arts Inc. announced today that EA PLAY 2017 in Hollywood will feature performances by the eight-time platinum recording artist Nas, DJ Green Lantern and Dave East. All three will perform on Saturday night, June 10th from 6-8pm PST, at the EA PLAY FanFest, one of the biggest pop culture events of the summer. The FanFest is at the heart of EA PLAY 2017, featuring more than 140 hands-on gaming stations where fans will be the first to play EA’s newest lineup of games including:

  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • FIFA 18
  • Madden NFL 18
  • NBA LIVE 18
  • The latest Need for Speed experience
  • The Sims Mobile and The Sims 4
  • Battlefield 1: In The Name of the Tsar
  • New content from Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes and Titanfall 2
  • Madden NFL Mobile
  • NBA LIVE Mobile
  • EA SPORTS FIFA on the Nintendo Switch

Widely celebrated as one of the greatest artists of all-time, Nas has received more than a dozen Grammy nominations since his debut album *Illmatic* in 1994. Joining the stage with Nas is DJ Green Lantern, a long-time DJ for some of hip hop’s top artists, and Dave East whose mixtape *Kairi Chanel* hit the US Billboard 200 last year. These three artists will headline a lineup of musical talent that will perform each day at EA PLAY from June 10-12 at the Hollywood Palladium.

EA PLAY is open to the public and tickets are free. The FanFest schedule is:

  • Saturday June 10 from 4pm – 8pm
  • Sunday June 11 from 12pm – 6pm
  • Monday June 12 from 12pm – 5pm

For those that attend in-person at the Palladium in Hollywood, they can experience even more surprises. Each day of the show, the first 2000 fans that play Star Wars Battlefront II will receive a numbered, limited edition poster. On Sunday and Monday, the first 500 people to play Madden NFL 18 and EA SPORTS FIFA 18, will receive a free copy of Madden NFL 17 and FIFA 17 respectively.

For anyone joining digitally around the world, EA PLAY will come to life through a variety of different content including livestreams.
