February 17th and 18th marks the first time that the world’s premiere chipmusic festival makes in to the Southern Hemisphere with Blip Festival Australia.

New York’s 8bitpeoples have presented Blip Festivals in the US, Europe and Japan since 2006 and now it’s Melbourne’s turn to experience two days of hard hitting low-tech chip mastery from some of the world’s foremost names in the chipmusic scene. The line up will feature a selection of artists from across Australia and around the world to present an arresting display of Audio-Visual performances that will rock one of Melbourne’s best known live music venues – The Evelyn Hotel.

Blip Festival showcases artists from as far afield as the UK, Germany and US – many of whom are performing in Australia for the first time – as well as superstars of the local scene. There will be launches of new material, a variety of genres and styles to suit everyone’s taste and a whole lot of high energy, lo-fi audiovisual magic, the likes of which Australia has never seen before.
