Full visualist roster! Poster by Andrea Shfr.

What is BRKfest you say? Well, if you didn’t gather it from the SEXY POSTERS ABOVE, it’s an annual three day chiptune festivalJuly 25, 26 & 27 – happening in Cincinnati, Ohio, & it’s zombofurkin JAMPACKED with AMAZEBALLS performers and vizualists!!!

To top things off, expect quality vendorsmultiple open mics, & even a couple of
workshops. Don’t believe me? That’s fine. BELIEVE THE OFFICIAL SCHEDULE THEN!

more revisions stroke (smaller)

And you can catch it for only $10 (single day pass) to $25 (three day pass). That’s so damn inexpensive that it’s almost insulting!!! Nevermind the $15 BRKshirts you can preorder as well (although jump on that if you want one, as those are a limited time offer!).

brkshirt

BRKshirt? BRKSHIRT.

Honestly, there’s only really one thing left to say…

SEE YOU THERE!!!
(& here you thought it was probably going to be “#dickbutts” or ZOMBOCON or something, didn’t you? Shame, shame… :3 )
