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 will likely be located inside the convention center (specific room still TBD, will update this) so you will need a PAX badge to enter. Our location and full schedule should
also be posted in the official printed PAX guide and Guidebook app when those are available. 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!
