Glitchfest proudly holds the title of the first games and YouTube Festival in Northeastern England. It has all the bells and whistles of a great gaming convention, right out of the gate, such as Q&A events, meetups with your favorite YouTube Stars, and live game demos.
Glitchfest has divided its event into seven zones. They have designed each zone to appeal to a particular audience. For instance, Zone One is entirely dedicated to retro gaming. Organizers promise that they will have consoles available for attendees to use. If you’d like to relive the fun of your first Sonic game, you have a golden opportunity. For those who prefer to experience the newer side of gaming, however, the festival also offers Zone Two, “The Future”. This zone is decked out in the latest in virtual reality equipment, and other growing gaming innovations.
If you are a competitive gamer looking to show off your skills, Glitchfest has your number too. Organizers are planning several live tournaments at the festival, for attendees to compete during the weekend. Details on these are still forthcoming.
Are you a professional looking to make a career in gaming? Good news: there’s a zone with your name on it. Zone 6 is named “The Spark”. Glitchfest has collaborated with Gateshead College, providing you with insider knowledge from experts and professionals on the scene. If you’re looking for advice, or for a little taste of what the gaming industry is like, you can’t miss this valuable resource.
Glitchfest is committed to bringing you the best possible experience. No matter what your taste, this festival will have something for you. Glitchfest will be held at the Metro radio Arena On the 27th and the 28th of October. To purchase tickets online and find out more, visit the Glitchfest website, here.
