SL18B is now officially open! Second Life is celebrating its 18th birthday with our biggest celebration ever -- this year we have over 35 regions filled with parties, live music, deejay performances, special events, exhibits, gifts, and shopping! Head on over to the SL18B Welcome Area and start your exploration now!

Here’s the rundown of some highlights from this year’s celebration, which runs through July 6th:

SL18B Destination Guide & Over 200 Community Exhibits!

At the heart of SL18B are over 200 exhibits that showcase a wide range of creativity across the many diverse communities in Second Life. Expect the unexpected as you explore and discover how each exhibit offers its own interpretation of this year’s theme “hidden worlds.” 

To get started, check out the Community Experiences category in our dedicated SL18B Destination Guide. Not all of the exhibits are listed in the guide, so make sure to visit all 8 of the exhibitor regions and walk around to enjoy all of them, and don't forget to pick up the gifts that some of them offer! The Exhibitor regions are: Amaze, Astonish, Captivate, ElectrifyIncredible, Pizzazz, Sparkle, and Stunning.

In addition to the community builds, there are several birthday events happening. Our Destination Guide also features an SL18B Events category - make a point to join your fellow Residents in the festivities!

Second Life Birthday


Calling all performers! Second Life is seeking talent for our upcoming 18th annual Second Life birthday celebration (SL18B) held from June 17th to July 1st, 2021. Get ready for fun-filled weeks of live music, performances, shopping, and amazing community exhibits! 

One of the things that makes Second Life so vibrant and exciting is the wide range of Performers who share their talent with our Residents. Are you a DJ who can spin up a great party set? You might be one of the grid’s amazing Dance companies, or perhaps you’re a Particle Performer! Whatever your medium, we would love to hear from you. 

Fill out the official performer application form by May 28th (this date has now changed to May 10th) and tell us a little about how you roll, and one of our Event Staff Leaders will contact you soon.


Over the next few months, keep an eye on our blog for more opportunities to participate in the SL18B celebrations!

We’re looking for volunteers to help people celebrate at the upcoming 18th annual Second Life birthday celebration (SL18B), held June 17th to July 1st, 2021. We are seeking Residents with great people skills and a love and excitement for Second Life to help us make SL18B a huge success! If you like the idea of promoting Second Life in a positive way to thousands of people in a celebratory atmosphere, we welcome you to apply today! The application will remain open through May 28th.

Second Life Birthday


Save the date! This June, Second Life will be turning 18! The 18th annual Second Life birthday celebration (SL18B) will be held from June 17th to July 1st. Get ready for fun-filled weeks of live music, performances, shopping, and amazing community exhibits!

This year’s theme for SL18B is Hidden Worlds, but don’t think that limits you! Just like last year, your exhibit does not need to stay in theme. If you are inspired by the thought of the hidden worlds around you, show us! Or, share your Second Life passions with us. Your interests. Your communities. Your worlds! Every year we celebrate because of you, the amazing and creative Residents, who have chosen to call Second Life home. What has drawn you into this world and what keeps you here? This year at the eighteenth annual Second Life Birthday, show us what fuels your Second Life and inspires you. Let's go exploring!

If you want to participate as an exhibitor with a presence at SL18B then please join us by filling out the exhibitor form no later than May 28th (this date has now changed to May 10th). Please note that the rules for exhibitors have been updated this year, so it is important to read them even if you have participated in SLB before. The rules can be found at the top of the application form.

This June, Second Life will be turning 18! Work is already happening to make sure that this year’s 18th birthday celebration is better than ever!

Full details of this year’s SL18B event will be revealed soon...but to get things started we are opening up the sign-up process now for auditions for the annual Music Fest, to be held June 17-19. Music Fest will kick off the overall SL18B celebration with three days of live music performances featuring some of the most talented musicians in SL!

Are you a new or veteran Second Life musician that wants to participate? Over a dozen performers will be chosen to share their musical talents with the Second Life community in an event that has become an SLB tradition. We welcome performers to apply and join us in wishing Second Life "Happy Birthday!"

To sign up for an audition, please complete the submission form. Applications are open until March 28th, 2021.

While we encourage all interested performers to sign up, please note that it does not guarantee a spot at the auditions. We will review all submissions and extend audition invitations via a follow-up note in-world to the SL username that you provide. For more details, see the submission form.

Over the next few months, keep an eye on our blog for more opportunities to participate in the SL18B celebrations as an Exhibitor, Performer, Volunteer, Merchant, and more!
