On September 26 at 9:00pm PDT is the TwitchCon 2015 after party. This event is for ages 18+ with tickets only available for purchase to those purchasing a pass to TwitchCon 2015. The first spotlight performer being announced is popular electronic dance music producer and DJ, Darude. Darude’s "Sandstorm" song is a staple among the Twitch community as an infectious track, as well as being a popular response in chat whenever someone asks what song is playing with a frequently used emote (duDudu).

"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," said Darude. "I look forward to performing for this incredible group of gaming and music fans at TwitchCon."

TwitchCon 2015 is taking place September 25-26 at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco and is the first ever convention dedicated to Twitch’s community of partners, broadcasters, and viewers.
