The Sims 4 will stage an in-game music festival called The Sims Sessions featuring Bebe Rexha and Glass Animals' Dave Bayley.

The Sims Session will take place from June 29 to July 7 and will feature a Sims version of Bebe Rexha performing a Simlish version of her song 'Sabotage.' It's unclear if Dave Bayley is performing a Simlish version of Glass Animals' hit single 'Heat Waves' or if it's just the normal version, but as a huge Glass Animals fan, I will certainly be tuning in. Songwriter and producer Joy Oladokun will also get on the in-game stage and open the virtual show with gorgeous ballad 'Breathe Again'.

"I’ve always been a fan of how The Sims empowers players to express their creativity with others in the game," says Bebe Rexha in the official press release. "Sims Sessions will be a fun experience for fans from around the world to enjoy music and hang with friends in a way that only The Sims can offer."

Sims Sessions is the first time a Simlish song will debut in-game. The event will also introduce a brand-new festival format that will let players explore the event, create some sick Coachella-esque looks, shop exclusive in-game merch, camp out, and woo-hoo in the tents, if I'm interpreting the promo picture correctly. You can even jump on stage and put on a performance of your own after the show is over, although Bebe Rexha, Dave Bayley, and Joy Oladokun are a tough act to follow for a Sim who only sings in the shower. 

EA is also encouraging The Sims 4 players to join the The Sims and Bebe Rexha on TikTok to show off their Simlish skills by performing side-by-side duets with Rexha and adding some of their own spice to 'Sabotage'. If the singer is a fan of your performance, she may just re-post your video, so now's the time to take all the Simlish you've learned from playing The Sims 4 and put it to good use.

Sims Sessions is super exciting, but is it more exciting than the upcoming Sims 4 Cottage Living expansion?
