What’s happening here: The first ASEAN League of Legends competition will gather youths from 10 different countries to compete in an arena-styled video-game tournament and broadcasted to a live audience. What else is happening: MTV Spotlight is hosting live performances from pop stars Alessia Cara and Nick Jonas, as well as popular SG band The Sam Willows.
