Massive Attack will stream a virtual concert in Minecraft tomorrow (April 25) as part of the game's inaugural Block by Blockwest festival.

Kicking off at 8.30 pm BST (and streaming on the band's Facebook page from 8pm BST), the set will take in songs from 2013's Massive Attack v Adam Curtis show at Manchester International Festival. It will feature vocals from the group's Robert '3D' Del Naja as well as Elizabeth Fraser.

Pussy Riot, HEALTH and IDLES are also amongst the acts playing as part of the virtual festival. For more information, click here.
