Streaming platform Twitch has announced new details of its upcoming community event TwitchCon, slated for September. It’s confirmed that EDM producer Darude will be performing at the afterparty.

Darude said, “The Twitch community has been really passionate about my music, especially in the way they hype ‘Sandstorm’ in chat and the support they have given my Twitch channel.”

TwitchCon will host 40 panels covering everything from building communities on its platform to the legalities around Let’s Play videos and monetizing streams.

In addition, 50 of Twitch’s top broadcasters including 2MGoverCsquared, Dansgaming and GiantWaffle will be in attendance.

TwitchCon 2015 will be held at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco on September 25 and 26. You need to be above 18 to attend the afterparty and witness Darude in all his glory, though.
