MAGFest, The Music And Gaming Festival, is an annual event held in the Washington D.C, and it's easily one of my favorite events of the year. This year, set for January 3 - 6, is their eleventh event, and they have a HUGE musician and band lineup prepared for guests. They're calling it their biggest one to date, with over 40 videogame music-related acts.
Special guests include legendary game music composers Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, Shenmue, Actraiser) and Kinuyo Yamashita (Castlevania).
Beyond this, tons of game music bands are set to take the event's double stages, including The OneUps, ARMCANNON, The Protomen, BrentalFloss, and many more. Add to that chiptune artists and DJs and you'll have an event that you'd be stupid to miss.
Oh, and Destructoid is hosting another panel at MAGFest 11. Destructoid Live! was a blast last year, so we're doing it again. Join myself, Hamza, Tony and others in the fun. Be there!
