Philadelphia’s 8Static has been providing monthly installments of chiptune and lo-fi music shows for almost seven years, and this week the collective is throwing their 3rd annual festival, set to take over Philadelphia for three days of high-volume, low-tech, electronic music.
The time is upon us. The annual Music and Gaming festival ( MAGfest ) is significant for both gamers and artists. For one, it’s where the original inspiration for Dj CUTMAN was conceived. Now, just three years later, my friends are I are gearing up for our largest MAGfest yet!
MAGfest is the event I look forward to every year! If you can’t make it, stay tuned to this blog for updates and new music! Let’s get this new year started right!
The ChipMusicChronicle brings us the entire weekend of BlipFestival 2012 in a single YouTube Playlist.
