Now entering its fourth year, The Blip Festival NYC is poised to take over the Bell House, December 17th-19th, to celebrate the best of chipmusic and its related disciplines with live music, workshops, film screenings and more. In the past, Blip Festival organizers The Tank and 8bitpeoples have brought you an amazing breadth of performers and artists from around the world, thanks to the help of our devoted fans and a generous array of sponsors and grants.
However the same economic forces that are making fund-raising difficult for other organizations have affected the Blip Festival as well, and a significant grant we have traditionally received supporting previous festivals is not available to us this year. Rather than scale back, we are moving forward with plans for an even greater variety of international performers, more workshops & screenings, and new related satellite events.
But, times being what they are, we now need to call upon our friends and fans to kick in a little to help us out. With your contribution, this will be the best Blip Festival yet, and as an added incentive, we are happy to offer the following rewards for donations at whatever level you can manage.
