This year was the biggest and best MAGFest ever. There were over 2100 people there, and every last one of them got their face melted off. We had a lot of fun putting it on, and we hope you all had an amazing time there. ZenAlbatross has put together a sampler pack of most the bands that played, and you can find it at http://magfest.org/MagfestSampler.
Check out the awesome press we're getting!
We're hard at work on getting all the details for MAGFest 9, and we'll blast out the news of that once it's ready. To keep up to date with the latest news, you can:

MAJOR NEWS! We just found out we have the ENTIRE HOTEL for New Year's Eve. This means we're throwing the most KICKASS New Year's Eve party of all time (OF ALL TIME!) while we set up with even MORE bands in the MAIN CONCERT HALL, GAME ROOM, and whatever else we have open at that time. This goes down at 8pm on Dec 31st, BE THERE.
Stay tuned for even more announcements.
You see, until recently, we were double-booked for New Year's Eve at the hotel with another group (the James Bond guys from last year). Now that they're GONE we are going to throw our OWN Secret Agent party. We want to see everyone representin' with some Bond-approved attire (okay, okay, it's not required but have some fun) and high tech gadgets. (HAX if you pick OddJob). At the request of the hotel and the Alexandria Police Department, please do not bring any weapons, no matter how fake they are.
To attend, just pre-register! Folks purchasing a full-weekend badge on Thursday at the door won't be turned away, but preregistered ones will receive priority in line. Band announcements for NYE are coming shortly.
The deadline to register is quickly approaching!
Anything that is not a regular attendee registration will be completely gone by Tuesday, December 15. We need this extra time to make arrangements for the marketplace, send your name off to our badge makers for the supporter badges, etc. So, if you are planning to be a dealer, supporter, super-supporter, or register as a group, as a wise man once said, DOOOO EEEEET! Regular preregistration will be ending at 11pm on Saturday, December 26. At that point, we have to disconnect the registration system so we can take it to the hotel for MAGFest. Please don't wait; take care of your MAGFest registration right now.
Remember... MAGFest does not "run out" of badges, you will always be able to get a regular badge at the door at the full price of $45, but we do not do do dealer, supporter, super-supporter, or group registrations at the door. A limited quantity of our extra goodies from the supporter pack orders will be available for a slight increase in price at the door.
Still need a room? The Hilton is AWESOME. Even though we hit our projection on rooms (thanks guys!), they expanded our block so you can still get rooms at a discounted rate. Some amazing news is coming down the grapevine about the Hilton, so please keep checking back for it!
