With what will hopefully be an annual event for us here at Heavy Blog Is Heavy, we’re bringing you our first ever photo sets from MAGFest, the yearly Music and Games Festival in National Harbor, MD at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center. Each year, thousands of gaming and music enthusiasts gather under one roof to hang out with each other and enjoy the wild styles of game-oriented artists from around the world.

This year we saw the likes of such artists as the hip-hop legend Mega Ran, the smooth lounge stylings of The One Ups, the crunchy riffage of Viking Guitar, and, all the way from Brazil, the all-original flavors of MegaDriver. But that’s only the first couple of days! More than forty artists performed this year, including the first ever US appearance for Swedish power/SID metal band Machinae Supremacy!
