Challenges released

Mon, 12/02/2013 - 9:59pm -- Nick The Newbie

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.

Stage 2 Final Announcement

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 4:10pm -- Nick The Newbie

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!

More chiptunes

Wed, 10/23/2013 - 1:26pm -- Nick The Newbie

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!


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.

More second stage bands!

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.

This Tour is a Party part 2 : The Party Strikes Back

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.

Wed, 10/02/2013 - 4:25pm -- Nick The Newbie

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!
