+++ BLIP FESTIVAL TOKYO 2012 +++

TWO DAYS OF CHIPMUSIC @ KOENJI HIGH ++ FULL PERFORMER LINEUP ANNOUNCED ++

Back in 2006, when the idea of a large-scale chipmusic event was first beginning to float around in our heads, we received an e-mail from a group of nine of Japan’s most incredible chipmusicians planning to visit New York together, and inquiring whether we might help them to organize a show while they were in town. That was the catalyst, not only for the first Blip Festival event, but for the entire Blip Festival event series, spanning eleven editions in four countries. So now, six years later, as we’re bringing the event series to a close, it feels good to be doing it in Japan with BLIP FESTIVAL TOKYO 2012 — where twenty of the world’s most talented chipmusicians and visualists will be converging for one last hurrah at Tokyo’s Koenji High, this October 20th and 21st. We hope you’ll come join and raise a glass with us, and then get down and dirty on the dancefloor, to the lights and sounds of…
