MAGFest is hands down my favorite event of the year. The music and gaming festival not only features an endless buffet of both these things, it also has a lot more on offer as it grows each and every year.

We've already mentioned that Kinuyo Yamashita and Yuzo Koshiro will be attending, as well as listed all the bands performing this year, but that's just the beginning. Join us for five reasons you need to be in National Harbor, Maryland, for four days of madness starting Thursday, January 3, 2013.

Five reasons to see Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses photo
Five reasons to see Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses
by Jayson Napolitano

I've been to a lot of game music concerts over the years: Dear Friends, More Friends, Distant Worlds, Video Games Live, PLAY!, and more. I think it's great that we're seeing music from this popular medium getting this kind of attention from orchestras around the world. While I had the pleasure of sitting with Chad during The Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary concert in Los Angeles last year, I admittedly missed out when Tony, Steven, Brett, and Patrick attended the full-blown tour stop of Symphony of the Goddesses.

Well, I corrected that. Dale and I had the pleasure of attending a recent show, and we were both impressed by the night's musical offerings. But rather than provide another lengthy write-up about our experience, I figured I'd suggest five reasons why you need to check this tour out before the 2012 season wraps up.
