The Megas and The X-Hunters

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!

AVGN, Egoraptor, Smooth McGroove and more!

Megadriver and On Being Human to perform

Sat, 08/31/2013 - 12:08am -- Nick The Newbie

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.

MAGFest Presents Bit Gen Gamer Fest 8

Fri, 05/10/2013 - 2:00am -- Nick The Newbie

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... 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.
