There is a magical place out there, friends.
A place where Game Boys frolic alongside guitars, and NES decks and drum kits gambol about in perfect, kickass harmony. It's called Blip Festival, and it is the center of the chiptune universe. We have been there, we have seen it, we have returned alive, and we are ready to report on the wonders we have seen.
