The Returners

are a five-piece VGM (video game music) band based in Austin, Texas. Among their claims to fame are a flute-playing front-woman and a singing drummer. They breathe new life into songs from retro and modern video games in a live rock band setting, along with a few non-gaming favorites from cartoons, musical theater and more. They’re a little metal, a little symphonic, and a lot nerdy.


Dual Core

have been rocking the more studious side of the hip hop underground since 2007. Longtime favorites of those that attend such things as DEFCON, these musical giants are a perfect example of technology based Hip Hop and the culture behind it. Recently, Dual Core’s song “All the Things” was featured in the hit game Watch Dogs 2 as not only a featured track, but pretty much the anthem of the entire game itself.


Wreck The System

is a Nerdcore Hip Hop group that consists of 4 members. Lady J, Osiris Green, Cam3, and Twill Distilled. Their music incorporates many other genres like rock, EDM, dirty pop, dubstep, chip-tunes, and pretty much everything else into their music. They also have an overlying message that many of their fans both new and old are brought together by, which is to “BE WHO YOU ARE WITHOUT FEAR”! This mission exists in order to encourage people to be and love themselves for who they are, and to not blindly follow the trends that so many people in today’s society get lost in.


The Marc With a C Trio

been featured in Wired magazine, has won the Orlando Weekly award for Best Indie Act in 2003, 2010 and 2011, nominated for Best Singer/Songwriter for three years running in the same publication, has played festivals you might have heard of, and his live shows are sweaty pop workouts – whether he’s playing solo or with his trio. His last seven albums have gone to #1 on Bandcamp’s indie pop vinyl charts within days of release, and he’s considered “canon” in the Rocky Horror universe due to his songs appearing on the blu-ray for the sequel, Shock Treatment. He’s also shared stages and toured with the likes of They Might Be Giants, The Dead Milkmen, The Protomen, Judy Tenuta and a number of other artists well known artists.


Professor Shyguy

is recently known for singing “Starring Star”, the Funimation dub outro to Dragon Ball Super. He can also be heard on Indoor Kids, Diamond Club, and many other podcasts. The best description for Professor Shyguy’s music is as follows; high energy, chiptune-electro-rocking, 8-bit, epicly vocalized, highly dance-able, theatrical nerd-pop. Singing 50% about video games and the other 50% is anything from Space/Time to English Language gymnastics.


Sci-Fried

…is freaking awesome. They’re the true embodiment of what “Geek Rock” is. In fact, if you looked up the definition of Geek Rock, you’d see their picture next to it! They’ve been a staple of the Orlando Nerd Fest for years, and have been playing gigs way before that even. The talent and experience in this band is second to none. Recently, Captain Dan of the Scurvy Crew has joined their ranks, making this unstoppable force even more contentious as the eye of the storm for all things rock.


DJ RoboRob

…is a multi-genre producer/DJ currently based out of Dallas, TX. He’s successfully remixed music from video games like Overwatch, Donkey Kong Country, Undertale, Chrono Trigger and loves to collaborate and release tracks that highlight his production style. He has multiple releases with Tiny Waves, Gamechops, Gaxel, and Attack the Music. He has toured the nation, played multiple music and anime conventions and raves, and has shared stage with artists such as: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Excision, Global Deejays, Mickey Avalon, Hieroglyphics, Nappy Roots, and many others.
