Since 2008, 8static has provided a welcoming venue for chip musicians — armed with old Nintendo Entertainment Systems, Game Boys, Sega Genesis consoles, computers and more.

We hold regular performances and an annual festival showcasing the best in the local and global scenes of this type. 8static has featured an incredibly diverse variety of artists ranging from solo Game Boy acts to full bands playing alongside an 8-bit backup track. All performers have visual art illuminating the backdrop and creating an immersive, visceral experience.

8static has been a strong advocate for diversity and hosts performers in a wide spectrum of musical-styles and backgrounds.
