After three years of putting on Blipfest -- one of the world's biggest annual chipmusic events -- in New York City, Manhattan arts organization The Tank and artist collective 8bitpeoples is bringing the festival across the Atlantic to the Danish city of Aalborg, where they will put on a two-day version with Danish art and technology venue Platform4.

Taking place from July 24 - 25, Blip Festival: Europe will include U.S. acts like Nullsleep, Minusbaby, and Glomag, but almost half of its lineup will consist of European musicians such as Bodenständig 2000, La Belle Indifference, and Rabato. Japanese artist Hally will also deliver a set. I've included a flyer listing most of the acts slated to appear after the break.

Along with the nighttime music performances, the European event will have other attractions during the day such as a film screening of chiptune documentary Blip Festival: Reformat The Planet, a workshop on creating visuals with an NES presented by Don "No Carrier" Miller, and more.

Says organizers, "The goal of the festival is the same as earlier incarnations, to inform and to rock, to push this nascent scene beyond its underground roots and into its rightful place as one of the worlds most exciting and dynamic electronic music movements."
