How to tune in to the Summer Game Fest "Kickoff Live!" stream

We might only be a few days away from the start of The ESA's E3 2021, but Geoff Keighley is back at it again with another iteration of his Summer Game Fest. This seasonal celebration is going to start very soon and we have everything you need to know about how you can watch the beginning of 2021's Summer Game Fest event.

When Does Summer Game Fest Start?

We've known about the Summer Game Fest for a little while now so we've had a confirmed start date for a few weeks. This, as any date and time, could be changed at the last minute but we're pretty certain that things are going to go ahead on schedule.

That means the "Kickoff Live!" event is going to start on June 10th at 11:00 PST / 14:00 EST / 19:00 BST. We're expecting it to last about two hours, give or take a Weezer performance.

MADDEN TO SHOW UP? - Are we going to see anything from EA Sports ahead of EA Play in July?

This is all well and good, but how do you actually watch the Summer Game Fest "Kickoff Live!" stream?

How To Watch The Stream

There's only really one place for these sorts of things and that's YouTube. In a similar fashion to Fortnite's Season 7 Story Trailer or the Battlefield 2042 reveal stream, there's already a YouTube video waiting to broadcast the event.

This will start to countdown properly prior to the aforementioned start time, but until then it's just a title screen. You can keep an eye on the embedded video below though if you don't believe us:

The Summer Game Fest DOES crossover with E3 2021 quite a bit, so chances are we won't see half of these to make an appearance. However, we know that Innersloth is showing up as they've been teasing new Among Us colours all week. So... That's something.
