Short for "Music And Gaming Festival," MAGFest is a four day-long event dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community. The event runs 24 hours a day, and offers consoles, arcades, tabletop, LAN, live video game cover bands, chiptunes, vendors, guest speakers, and much much more.
Some of the PH16 crew has attended MAGfest a number of times. Our very own @LitaGemini has a panel on Saturday at 8:30pm discussing the Psychological Tricks of the Dungeon Master. If you can believe it, she did her Masters Thesis on D&D, so @LitaGemini, along with some other smart guests, will throw some science at you about how to improve your RPG experience. guidebook.com/guide/144392/event/22482170/
If you can't find her, she's dressed up as Android 21 from DBZ FighterZ and drinking Devil May Cry themed cocktails at Pose on the roof while listening to our favorite video game DJs!
As for @elliface @chefbrent @kevin_spicy and @troopzor, these first time attendees are MAG newbies, but they're still ready to forego sleep for some great concerts.
@Elliface has been a big fan of GameChops and will be seeing IRL friends Grimecraft and DJ Cutman spinning Thursday night.
Kris Maddigan famed for making the music for my favorite game Cuphead is here for a concert and Q&A, which is @ChefBrent’s favorite weekend event!
When asked about what his most anticipated part of MAGfest 2019 @troopzor commented, and this is a quote…
“COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK COMMAND AND CONQUER SOUNDTRACK”
Notably, much of the PH16 community is in attendance as well! @electrikdave @symphoenix @nicksmadscience @vince_vandal @ariatflames @carensir will all be around National Harbor this weekend.
Don't forget to catch @chefbrent streaming with his IRL backpack all weekend!
