Team Nerdapalooza has just announced
that the famed VGM cover band NESkimos
will headline at this year’s event in Orlando, FL from August 3rd – 5th
Nowâ€¦ you may have heard of this one band calledÂ the NESkimos. Theyâ€™ve played some shows you may have heard of likeÂ MAGFestÂ Â andÂ PAX. So yeah know, no big deal. Sadly, theyâ€™ve been MIA since 2006. Theyâ€™re from Florida so itâ€™s always been a goal of mine to get them back together somehow to play the event. OH WAIT. Guess who is coming back together and playing at Nerdapalooza? THATâ€™S RIGHT! We got the NESkimos as our latest Headliner! Pretty damn big news.
If you haven’t heard of the NESkimos, these dudes will rock your world with their unique metal covers which certainly adds to the allure of seeing them perform live this August after being inactive for over six years. While you can check out more of their epic arrangements on YouTube, make sure to purchase a Nerdapalooza ticket if you haven’t already.
Nerdapalooza’s head honcho John “hex” Carter has just announced on the official website
that the festival will be making a bigger and betterÂ comeback than ever before for 2012! Nerdapalooza 2012 will take place on the weekend ofÂ August 3rd to 5thÂ
at The SocialÂ andÂ the BeachamÂ in downtown Orlando, Florida. Both venues will be much larger than previous Nerdapalooza locations;Â The BeachamÂ will act as the primary stage, holding over 1,200 attendees while The SocialÂ will act as this year’s secondary stage that will hold around 500 people.Â The line-up for Orlando’s biggest nerd festival is also looking amazing as Metroid Metal
, Danimal Cannon
, the OneUps
, and Random Encounter
will be returning once again to rock your world, while other performances will be announced soon.
Touted as a ‘brand new experience’, the festival will be sure to please those who plan to return this year.Â The Friday Pre-Party is also coming back as a free event with live performances and free food & beer at the Social, with the main performances occurring at the Beacham starting Saturday, August 4th.Â Â Tickets for admission and announcements for discount hotel prices will also be made public on the Nerdapalooza website within the week, so be sure to check back or head on over to the official website to get your nerd on.
