Bust out your Game Boys, the Blip Festival is back for its fourth year of low-tech music magic. It takes place in New York City December 17th-19th. The first batch of performers were released this week. This is only a partial lineup so stay tuned.

Here’s a description of the festival from the site:

Entering its fourth year of celebrating the best and brightest from the realm of chipmusic and its related disciplines, the festival showcases the use of the former heavyweights of computing such as the Commodore 64 and Amiga, the Atari ST and 2600, and the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy to create arresting music and visual art.
