MAGFest supports the Plz Diversify Your Panel initiative, and strives to represent diverse groups of people on our panels when possible.
Guest and Community Panels
Want to know where video game artists and musicians get their inspiration? Looking to find out how programmers make those video games tick? Got a question for a video game remixer? Dying for some intelligent video game talk with folks that write game articles? Drum up a chat with our special guests at the discussions and get a better idea of what's going on behind the scenes. To ensure fairness to those who have waited in lines for panels, please be advised that it is our policy to clear each panel room between panels. If you'd like to watch the following panel you'll need to leave the room and return to the back of the line. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Music And Gaming Education Symposium (MAGES)
The newest feature to the lineup of activities at MAGFest, MAGES is a panel track dedicated the discussion of all aspects of game creation. Every facet of the process of game creation, from story to gameplay to level design to visuals to music composition, are all simultaneously both a science and an art, and MAGES exists to provide a forum analyze all these aspects. Academics, developers, writers, composers, artists, and fans are all welcome to join in the discussions that will be taking place all weekend. In addition to the scheduled panels in the MAGES lineup, there will also be areas dedicated to free open unscheduled debate and discourse.
