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.
I hope all you gluttons for punishment have left room in your big fat masochistic stomachs, because our torture expert scientists in the lab have cooked up the most devious batch of rage-inducing controller-throwing trickery and frustration you've ever encountered. Prepare yourself for the MAGFest 12 challenges, aptly themed ZeldAdeventure Time. Get all the practice you can, because MAGFest is only so long, and you'll need experience beforehand if you desire to have any morsel of hope. But enough talk, HAVE AT YOU.
Greetings ladies and gentlemen.
So it was teased a while ago that there would possibly be more music to announce (augmenting our already huge musician lineup), and here I am not only announcing more music, but new shenanigans and main stays as well. How insane did we go this year? Let's find out!
Happy Music Wednesday everyone! Sorry that things are a little late, totally my fault. This whole west coast thing is messing with my sense of time. ANYWAYS.
We've announced a HUGE NUMBER OF BANDS this year so far. There was an error last week and we forgot to announce the fourteenth band for Stage 2. A crazy jazz fusion act out of Raleigh NC called Eight Bit Disaster.
As Music Wednesdays begin to wind down for the year we start getting some closure with things. Last week was the final announcement for the Chiptune Showcase, and this week we'll close out the Stage 2 performers.
Returning from Stage 2 last year we have two very awesome acts who played their first MAGFest last year. The always awesome quintet of Overclocked University and the quite insanely big sounds of the Triforce Quartet!
We've got some more chiptune artists for you to augment our already huge list of performing musicians. So let's hand this over to Big Mat, the Moira Quirk to my Mike O'Malley. MO! I mean MAT!
HAPPY MUSIC WEDNESDAY EVERYONE!
So we finished out the DJs fairly recently for the year. How about we wrap up chiptunes this week so you guys can stop biting your nails. :) You're welcome.
Happy Music Wednesday everyone!
We have ten Stage 2 bands left to announce for this year. And while the list is already starting off strong, lets add some more epic layers to this mamma jamma, shall we? How about five all new to performing at MAGFest acts? That is what Stage 2 was designed for, new, awesome things. And this announcement brings you some serious awesome.
With the Game Over series officially done for the year all that would normally be left now is just MAGFest proper, but we're far from normal... aren't we? I'm here to tell you that you have one more chance (if you're lucky) to check out a MAGFest thing before the main event in January. And this one more chance is more like 22 chances really.
Happy Music Wednesday! This week we unveil more of our glorious DJ lineup! Put your hands in the air for bLiNd, Ben Briggs, and Dj CUTMAN! They'll be pumping up the volume once again this year, so get your jumping shoes on cause they'll make you bounce until your knees give out! Check out all of our currently announced performers on our musicians page, but first a word from our dance floor grand master, Big Mat!
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!
