Deadmau5 will play — in all senses of the word — in a PUBG event on Prime Day.

Twitch Prime will celebrate Amazon Prime Day with a special PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Squad Showdown featuring popular DJ deadmau5 and streamers including Shroud, the controversial Dr DisRespect, Anne Munition and more.

Prime Day may be a made-up corporate holiday, but the entertainment looks pretty good. While you’re there, grab your TwitchCon 2018 tickets — they just went on sale.

Deadmau5 will perform his new single, “Monophobia Ft Rob Swire,” along with music from his Mau5ville Vol. 1 CD and other new music.

The festivities start at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on July 13 on Twitch. Viewers get in-game PUBG goodies, and Twitch promises killer squad action between celebrities and streamers. The full streamer lineup: Shroud, Dr DisRespect, Anne Munition, Chocotaco, chad, anthony_kongphan, Ashek, Lil_Lexi, DizzyKitten, Tsm_viss, Luzu, Tsm_smak, GoldGlove, GiantWaffle, N0thing, and Trick2g.

Details are posted on the Twitch blog. The company is offering daily free games for Twitch Prime members, as well as Twitch and deadmau5 merchandise.
