7 YEARS 11 FESTIVALS 4 CONTINENTS
When we invaded an old bank in NYC's financial district back in 2006 to throw the first Blip Festival, there was no way we could have predicted the way that it would grow over the years. All the while, the organizational team behind-the-scenes has remained a very small and hands-on crew. Running it all has been an immensely rewarding experience, but also incredibly demanding, and often monopolizing our energy and efforts at the expense of other 8bitpeoples projects. So after careful deliberation, we've decided that this October's Blip Festival Tokyo 2012 will be the last installment of the Blip Festival event series for the foreseeable future. A special thanks to Christian Villum, David Adams, Kristy Dossor & Eugene Davoren-Britton -- without whom, the overseas editions of Blip Festival would not have been possible.
To all the people that have shown Blip Festival so much love over the years, we thank you. We hope that you'll come join us for one last hurrah in Tokyo, and that you'll find our other future endeavors worthy of the same enthusiastic support.
