Rockage is coming! Rockage is coming! Silicon Valley’s celebration of indie music and retro gaming will return to downtown San Jose in early February, this time sporting some slick changes.

This year’s event will span three days, with performances from chiptune champions Minibosses, Bit Brigade, Matthew Joseph Payne, Crashfaster, and more music that hearkens back to the era of bleeps and bloops. This year’s competitions will include Mario Kart, Smash Bros. and Guitar Hero, and food trucks will be on hand for refueling. No need for quarters — everything’s on free play. Sunday is kid’s day, presented by Fun Fun Records.

Three-day passes are on sale now for $20. After December 8th, ticket fees rise.
