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.
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.
