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.
Applications for musical performers at MAGFest 12 (January 2014) are now closed. Open mic performances are still allowed in our Jamspace, but we unfortunately cannot accept any more applications for scheduled performances. If you'd like to perform at MAGFest 13 (January 2015), then check back in April 2014 when we open up applications.
