While the East Coast is home to MAGFest, the West Coast has been a little left out in the retro gaming and indie music festival scene. Well that's about to change as a new festival called Rockage will be debuting in San Jose on February 11 and 12. On top of the free play arcades and pinball tables, there will be over 20 different bands/DJS performing by groups such as The Glowing Stars, 8 Bit Weapon, A_Rival, crashfaster, ComputeHer, The Megas and more.
Tickets are $20 for advance two-day pass, or you can get a single day pass for $20 at the door. The festival will be open to all ages, and THERE WILL BE FOOD TRUCKS!! There is also going to be classic gaming tournaments plus the first West Coast Guitar Hero tournament of 2012.
You can follow Rockage on Tumblr and Twitter to keep up to date with what's going on with the show.
