ZEvent 2022: dates, program, guests, all to know

Eight months after smashing all records at the ZEvent 2021, ZeratoR and Dach are back for a seventh edition of the event. Adrien Nougaret and Alexandre Dachary, named after them, launched the ZEvent with the aim of bringing together the video game community and Twitch (but not only!) while benefiting from raising funds for various associations.

The project was born in 2016 and comes back every year with a tendency to chain record after record. Now these are about fifty streamers who come together for a good cause. The marathon lasts for more than 50 hours and each of the guests takes it in turns to play games while encouraging Internet users to donate to the association.

From year to year, the kitty has grown. From €170,000 in 2016, it reached the 10 million euros last year. In total, all the editions combined, the ZEvent has donated more than 21 million euros to associations.

For three years, the team of lemon squeezer is mobilizing to make you live the weekend live so as not to miss anything of the event. In the meantime, here is all the practical information you need to know about the ZEvent 2022, at a time when its dates, its program and its guests have just been revealed.

ZEvent 2022 dates

ZEvent 2022 will take place from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 September 2022. Like last year, a “public” part will take place on Thursday September 8 with a special showcase which acts as a starter. During this showcase, a concert will be organized with the presence of PV Nova, LittleBigWhale, French Fuse, Berywam, Bigflo and Oli or Soprano.

For the rest, the streamers will take turns day and night, in the event room and perhaps even outside as well. The ZEvent takes place near Montpellier (Hérault). In 2021, some have offered challenges to their community to reward them for their donations, such as going for a night swim in the sea. donations.

ZEvent 2022 program

Like last year, the ZEvent 2022 will take place in two stages this year. On Thursday September 8, a showcase with a concert that you will be able to discover LIVE on the event’s Twitch channel, or on site at the Zenith in Montpellier. The ticket office will be open from July 11, 2022. Do not hesitate to approach the point of sale to be sure of collect your tickets.

Its success, the event also owes it to its very general public and accessible angle, which allows it to attract much more than internet users from the gaming community. With discussions, challenges, giggles, quizzes… the various streamers’ Twitch channels reach an even wider audience and the red thread of the growth of the prize pool also gives an even deeper meaning to the event.

The 2022 edition of ZEvent will start on Friday September 9 at 6 p.m. and end on Sunday September 11 at midnight.

[mise à jour 5 août 2022]

ZeratoR recently announced that two big activities were planned for ZEvent 2022. The first will be a “Twitch Plays Pokemon”. This is a very popular concept where viewers play a Pokémon game by performing specific actions in the chat. The idea is therefore to finish a Pokémon game all together. For the Zevent concept, access to the game will be free, but the streamers present will pay a sum for each badge collected by the viewers. The sum will of course go to the ZEvent 2022 associations.

The second game will be a “/place” (or PixelWar). A very popular event on Reddit that France had won hands down in the spring. Building on its success, the ZEvent will create its own pixel war where 1€ will allow viewers to pose 10 pixels. Again, all donations will go directly into the kitty for ZEvent 2022 associations.

The ZEvent 2022 association

This year, the ZEvent intended to support the GoodPlanet association, a foundation that fights to save our planet. But the announcement was not to everyone’s taste, whether it was Internet users, but also some streamers who announced that they would not be participating in the event. Following the huge bad buzz on social networks, ZeratoR and Dach decided to break the agreement with Good Planet.

While the climate is becoming an increasingly important issue, the creators of ZEvent are committed to acting in favor of ecology. But this mission promises to be much more complicated than expected. According to the latest report from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), we only have 3 years left to act in favor of the climate at the risk of disastrous consequences. Thus, many associations engage with actions that are not always good. This will inevitably create a lot of debate and raise a lot of questions.

To satisfy everyone, ZeratoR has announced the organization of a poll to allow viewers to elect five charities on ecology which will share the donations of ZEvent 2022. Thus, Internet users have elected:

  • Sea Shepherd
  • LPO
  • WWF
  • Time For The Planet
  • The Sea Cleaners

As every year, it will be possible to make a donation and keep a precious memory of this historic weekend. Thus, ZeratoR presented the new t-shirt for this 2022 edition which, for the first time, does not place the ZEvent logo at the center of it. There is a planet there, a cause for which we are all mobilized this year. The sale price of the t-shirt will be 26€.

This year again, it will be possible to have a collector’s item with the ZEvent brochure (as in 2020 and 2021). It will be an object limited to 3000 copies which will be sold 175€.

The history of ZEvent

Since 2016, the ZEvent has experienced very strong growth over the years. The 2020 edition had already been historic, in the midst of a pandemic, but the most striking memories are certainly those of the year 2021, when the bar of 10 million euros was exceeded. A symbolic number, which has given the gaming community coverage in the general press and on television, in France and internationally.

Here is the history of the evolution of the ZEvent kitty over the past six years, as well as the associations selected according to the editions:

  • 2016: 170,000 euros for the Save The Children association
  • 2017: 500,000 euros for the French Red Cross association
  • 2018: €1,094,731 for the Médecins Sans Frontières association
  • 2019: €3,509,878 for the Institut Pasteur association
  • 2020: 5,724,377 euros for the Amnesty International association
  • 2021: 10,064,480 euros for the Action Contre la Faim association
  • 2022: the suspense is at its peak
