GameFaceShow hosted the first ever ChipBattle at Fab Cafe Manchester on February 12th 2016. This was a head-to-head, rap battle style format for gameboy chiptune musicians. The video below is an epic multi-camera shoot with high quality sound that really captures the energy of the battle! Watch two chiptune musicians square off, for only 16 bars each, in three rounds. At the end the crowd decides the winner, but GameFace is also polling their viewers in the YouTube comments and it sounds like there is an upset!
A huge Chiptune show was held at this year’s MAGFest. The show featured some of the hottest chiptune performers, including Danimal Cannon, Trey Frey, and Jake “Virt” Kaufman. Chiptune netlabel Chiptunes = WIN teamed up with the crew from Philadelphia’s Chiptune event 8Static to host a Chiptune concert on MAGFest’s main stage. MAGFest is The Music and Gaming Festival, a non-profit company that hosts video game music events across the United States.
