So much great music, so little time!

As previously mentioned, the Saturday's schedule at MAGFest was incredibly compact. There were tons of great acts scheduled as well as several impromptu performances that turned out to be some of the best of the show.

As always, Jake "virt" Kaufman drew a huge crowd with his energetic chiptune performance that he split with coda. It was an amazing set and one of the best of the event. Also of note was Rare Candy's set that closed with an awesome Chrono Trigger medley.

Yuzo Koshiro's highly-anticipated DJ set and had everyone in the room jumping and dancing with tracks from a mix from Actraiser, Streets of Rage, and Wangan Midnight. He even led the crowd for several Colossus screams which was a sight and sound to behold.

An impromptu chiptune show took place at about 2:00am featuring new music by Zen Albatross and others, and A_Rival took to the stage and had a delirious crowd going until about 5:00am with his funky "Chemical Plant Zone" from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and TMNT.

And that wraps up our music coverage from MAGFest. We hope everyone that attended enjoyed the event, and we hope to see you next year! And, as mentioned at our panel, please chime in and let us know what you want to read when it comes to game music and chiptune coverage!
