Rockage 2.0 is coming

San Jose has started recently to birth more music festivals. One coming into its second year is Rockage, hosted by Grand Fanali Presents. Rockage is a three-day festival that features indie, chiptune, and retro gaming all together.

A new culture of music has been trending to appeal to gamers and music lovers alike – chiptune, also 8-bit music. Chiptune first started in the 1980s but has recently become a global trend, opening new crowds to discover and love a very different aesthetic of music. Rockage caters to the new growth in chiptune featuring up and coming locals, like crashfaster, and out-of-town masters, minibosses.

A mixture of emerging indie rock bands will also be featured at Rockage, like Cartoon Bar Fight, Curious Quail, Shinobu, Good Hustle, and more.

Rockage will be at San Jose Women’s Club (75 S 11th Street) Feb 8-11. Get tickets for Rockage here.
