Nobody claimed the top-end reward on Kickstarter – an original GameBoy (DMG), signed by the artists performing at SuperByte 2013 and also the large banner that we’re having printed for this year’s stage. So! We’ve decided to make these rare and amazing items available as part of a charity raffle at SB13.
Our charity of choice is Macmillan Cancer Support – a charity very close to our hearts and who we’ve raised money for before via MegaByte parties. Raffle tickets will be on sale at the merchandise stall for £1 each (along with information on Macmillan’s work and a collection bucket) and one lucky winner will win both the signed GameBoy and the stage banner when we draw the raffle tickets after Sabrepulse’s set on the Saturday night.
These guys do amazing work and we’re happy to support them in any way we can, so get your tickets at the festival and best of luck!
We’re pleased to announce that the entire of SuperByte 2013′s live performance schedule will be broadcast online via SceneSat Radio‘s audio stream.
SceneSat Radio aims to play the best music from every corner of the 8 bit / chipscene and related stuff including game remixes, game soundtracks, demotracks, netlabels, tracks from music compos at demoparties and much more and we’re really happy to have these guys on board.
We’d hope you can join us in person to fully take in the atmosphere of SuperByte, participate in our workshops and meet artists and fellow fans in person but if you absolutely can’t (like if you live on the moon or something…), then you can still hear the show via the interwebz. In the mean time, check out SceneSat’s website and audio stream for a load of awesome tunes that are sure to get you in the mood for SuperByte.
