MAGFest is a video and computer gaming festival run by fans, for fans. It’s similar to an anime or scifi convention, but aims to be more of a laid-back video game party. Nearly everything is open 24-hours. The show floors aren’t crowded but still filled with lots of fan art, film and music. Our special guests fit right in and socialize with everyone. Game movies and cartoons are shown all weekend. In addition to our 10,000 square foot game room, lots of attendees set up games in their rooms and invite others inside.

MAGFest is basically what would happen if you and 3000 of your friends took over an entire fucking hotel for 4 days and did nothing but play games, party, and listen to concerts the entire time. The consoles, arcades, tabletop, and LAN games are all going 24 hours a day during the entire event, and don’t let up until close.

Notable Bands (over two dozen musical acts will be playing):
Metroid Metal
The OneUps
The Minibosses
The protomen
Noteable guests:
Hiroki Kikuta (composer of secret of mana)
Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin? and Once Upon A Pixel
Jon St. John (voice of duke nukem)
Wes Johnson (the guy who says HALT CRIMINAL SCUM in oblivion)
Alexander Brandon (composer for deus ex and unreal tournament)
Grant Kirkhope (Composer for goldeneye, and perfect dark)
A bunch of people from Channel Awesome and That Guy With The Glasses
