You know what this is. You know what we do.

MAGFEST 2017

Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center
201 Waterfront Street
National Harbor, MD 20745
Jan 5 - 8, 2017

 

  • http://magfest.org - Educate yourself.
  • Badge purchasing - Get your badge!
  • Hotel reservation - Get your room! Last year, rooms at the Gaylord sold out in less than 24 hours, so if you want to get in there, be quick about it! There are four overflow hotels in short walking distance though. EDIT: All five hotels sold out in less than 30 minutes this year. >_<  MAG's continually setting up more overflow options though.
  • OCR room block - Too late to get in! Small block this year.
  • MAGFest channel on OCR Discord - We used GroupMe last year for OCR people to get in touch with each other and plan around what everyone else was doing, but since we're now on Discord, we're using that this year (shout-out to DarkeSword for making the new channel)

If you're coming, reply below to sound off.


OCR-Relevant Panels and Concerts

  • ReMixing Video Game Music 101 (presented by OC ReMix) - Panels 1: Fri 1-2:30pm

I'll be there as well...definitely not booking a suite this time! Will most likely be crashing with various shizzies. You all should go to MAG Underground this time if it winds up happening again! Such a sick lineup of bands played last year.

Apparently the Gaylord sold out in like 15 minutes, and the rest of the discounted rooms in less than an hour.  I was still able to make a reservation at full price, but that might be pretty steep for some people.  Still, I'd rather spend another couple hundred bucks on a room within walking distance than spend that on either a rental car or cab/Uber fares and be in a less convenient location anyway.

 

I've never actually been to MAGFest before.  Wanted to for years, but this is the first time scheduling and finances both worked out at the same time.  Gonna be a good time -- looking forward to meeting you lot in person!

Going again.  Managed to get a room in this time.  Hopefully they get the printed schedule right this time.

Didn't get a room but I'll still be there. I do have a room for Thursday night at one of the overflow hotels but it looks like that I'll be commuting the rest.

I'll *most likely* be going. Unfortunately no Marshall Art shows this time around (streifig's going to be a father by the end of the year :D and can't make it to MAGFest as a result D:) but maybe I'll get to do visuals for some chiptune performers again, who knows?

Will not be going. 

Didnt have fun at the previous Mag, and it is getting harder and harder to justify going there. Dont wanna pay 700 dollars to be grumbly for three days.

Also, Residence Inn has complimentary breakfast.

Like, actual breakfast, or a muffin under a heat lamp "breakfast"?

The second one, but it's better than most of your other mag options anyway...

A little bit of both.  Jovian's right, but it also has eggs and sausage and some other things.  Basically your standard hotel small breakfast buffet.

YO! Add loudmog to the attendees list. I didn't book a room, so I'll be looking into that, and may possibly end up just finding somewhere outside of the area. I'll be driving down from Philadelphia. I've also submitted a general staffing application to help out as much as needed.

Dang. I'll be there again this year, but clearly not in the Gaylord. Can't believe how fast the hotels sold out this year...

Definitely going.  Still figuring out the room situation though -- by the time I got home from work, the hotel rooms were gone.  So you can put me down as "looking for room".

I'll be there for at least some of it; don't know if I'll be there for all of it

Probably going. Apparently badges are selling out fast and I won't have the money to get one for another couple weeks. That on top of not having a room at this point in time make it seem difficult/near impossible to work out. But if I can get a badge and room, I'll be there.
