Welcome back for another exciting week of Music Wednesday! Today we're happy to welcome back The X-Hunters and The Megas to the main stage, creating a dichotomy of good and evil that makes me feel smart for using the word "dichotomy" in a sentence. You can check out all of our currently announced performers on our musicians page, but first let's get a rundown about these robotic warriors from our own robot slave, Big Mat!
The cow says "mooooooo". The Big Mat says:
Music Wednesday has begun!!!!!!
So, for the past couple years we've had some late night DJ awesomeness and we've been thinking of ways to make it better, to improve on it, etc. Some ideas have been expand the DJ roster, which we did last year. Some have been more... entertaining. And this year we will be doing both!
Today is Music Wednesday! We'll be revealing musical acts every Wednesday up until November 4th. So stay tuned every week until the whole kit and kaboodle is released! Up this week, we're happy to welcome rapper Mega Ran back to the main stage, and are excited to have Final Fantasy metal Knight of the Round graduating from the second stage to the main stage! Let's hear what our main music man big mat has to say. BIG MAT, I CHOOSE YOU:
Gotta move fast today guys! No time for witty banter so here's a press release about our latest guest, and his kickstarter!
There are some bands out there that have such sheer devotion to the video game music community, that MAGFest is all but obligated to give them the recognition they deserve. MegaDriver is a band from Brazil who have been performing VGM tributes since 2003, and they're finally getting a chance to perform in North America on the MAGFest main stage.
It's been a little while since we last gave you guys news, and all the subpages on our website look like they were cooked up by a guy with zero web design experience at 7am after not sleeping the entire night prior, but we don't care! We're going to give you some more information anyway! We've got two more great bands to announce this year, both of which should be familiar to MAGFest veterans. This Place is Haunted are old-school MAGFest warriors who bring rock, and Those Who Fight are relative newcomers who return to make you realize you'll never sing as well as Amanda Lepre.
Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, Children of all ages that have had their parental waiver form signed and notarized. It is with extreme pleasure that we are very proud to officially announce the Twelfth Annual Music And Gaming Festival, coming January 2-5, 2014, at the Gaylord National Hotel in National Harbor, MD.
We've been good friends with the people who run Bit Gen Gamer Fest, ever since it's inception, almost a decade ago, when they were called "8-Bit Genocide." Well we've grown very close to one another, and when two events love each other very much, they want to show their love for each other physically...
...in other words, Bit Gen Gamer Fest is now an official MAGFest event! The 8th annual Bit Gen Gamer Fest will be August 10th, 2013 at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD.
