The fourth season of “Stranger Things” debuts May 27 on Netflix and Doritos is helping to celebrate with a special musical event. According to Billboard, the first-ever “Live From The Upside Down” virtual concert will go down June 23, featuring several ’80s acts to go with the show’s 1986 setting, including The Go-Go’s, Corey Hart, and Soft Cell. In addition, Charli XCX will make an appearance, and perform a collaboration with one of the ’80s stars.

A release from Frito Lay explains the premise of the concert: “A tour bus crashed near Hawkins, Indiana on its way to the Doritos Music Fest ’86 in an alternative dimension called the Upside-Down from Stranger Things – and everyone on board vanished. Now, the doomed event has been resurrected in real life for a special concert to be held virtually on June 23.”

For Go-Go’s guitarist Jane Wiedlen, recording the virtual concert was nothing short of a thrill, even though she didn’t get to meet any of Stranger Things’ cast members. “I’m a huge fan of Stranger Things,” she says. “I was really hoping to meet the cast, but that’s OK. We got to be in the Upside-Down. We’re just super excited and grateful that Stranger Things thought of us.”

To reserve tickets to the concert, pick up a bag of Doritos or Doritos 3D Crunch with “Stranger Things” packaging. You can also click here to reserve your ticket.
