I've been waiting so long for this and it has finally happened:
After nearly a decade of absence from the west coast, MAGFest's Jamspace is returning to PAX West with a full lineup of stellar performers from all points in the nerd spectrum, as well as opportunities for anyone of the musical persuasion to get in on the action!
Come visit us for convention-long fixings of live Nerdcore, classic VGM cover bands, Chiptune artists and everything in between. We'll also have a few old school free-play setups for the retro-minded.
Do you and your friends have some ideas for a good groove? Got a chip set you've been meaning to try out? Come on by during the Open Jam sessions and move us to tears! We'll have some gear ready and waiting but feel free to bring yours from home, too!
We are located inside the convention center in room 3AB, and that is easily visible on the "WSCC Map (1/2)" in the PAX Guidebook app. Our performance schedule is on the Guidebook app as well so if there are any performances you don't want to miss you can easily add them into your own schedule. The schedule is a bit more broken up than it usually is for East but this does allow many more opportunities for you and your friends to come in and jam out on the stage!Facebook event page
If you can't make it we plan on recording every performance and if possible we will at least attempt a live stream which would be found here
