Merry Christmas from MAGFest and SUNNY the very nice kitty! We thought the schedule would be a great present for you, but that's not all we we have. Since you've been such good boys and girls this year, you can also have our Indie Game Showcase lineup!
PRE-REGISTRATION closes on December 23rd! Badges will be available at the door for $60 (weekend) and $35 (single day), so pre-reg to save money. The hotel might sell out this year, so please GET A ROOM as soon as you can!
It's been a very long road, but we've finally reached the end. This announcement will complete our list of officially scheduled MAGFest 11 musical performances. We have 12 main stage bands, 8 chiptune acts, 14 second stage bands, 4 DJs, and a partridge in a pear tree. That's a total of 38 acts (plus the partridge)! Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, as promised, here's that returning favorite we've been talking about, as well as a relative newcomer who has been promoted from second stage to main stage.
Musical performers (click to view all 38 musical performers):
The Protomen - You asked for it, so you got it. In fact, you asked for it repeatedly and relentlessly, and threatened to harm our families. The post-apocalyptic Mega Man rock opera will be returning to fulfill every 1980s desire you never got a chance to experience.
Those Who Fight - On the subject of rock operas, this supergroup of members from Armcannon, Descendants of Erdrick, Year 200X and others will tell a story of rebellion using the music of Final Fantasy.
Welcome to Music Wednesday! Today I give you the last of our second stage bands, and next week will be the thrilling conclusion of Music Wednesday where we announce a big returning favorite! Here's a hint: Stop asking because we're not telling. What we will tell you, though, is that we'll be streaming our concerts and panels thanks to Arecibo Radio and 8BitX!
Second stage performers (click to view all musical performers):
Dwelling of Duels Live - That's right! Monthly VG arrangement competition Dwelling of Duels has put together a live performance band featuring all-stars Tony "Prince of Darkness" Dickinson, Alex "housethegrate" Liss, Kunal Majmudar of TheOneups, and more! Dwelling of Duels is a fantastic site with hundreds of fantastic video game music arrangements that have been made over the last 9 years. Do yourself a favor and check it out right now!
Descendants of Erdrick - Rock + Flute + Afro = awesome.
Super Guitar Bros - Acoustic guitar duet giving you great medleys from classic games. We promise we won't fuck up their sound this year.
X-Hunters - Metal covers of Mega Man X 1-3. They know what they do, and they're good at doing it.
Sunny a very nice kitty who wants you to pre-register as soon as you can! Hotel reservations are currently in a state of flux right now, but you can find out the latest details on our "get a room" page.
