Ultrachip is a two-day chipmusic festival based in Scotland, showcasing live chip musicians from the UK and beyond.
This year’s event is being hosted over Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th of August, at the Forest Cafe. The lineup is truly exceptional, over 14 different chiptune artists including Firebrand Boy, Comptroller, We Are The Future and Edward Shallow. Check it out!
ThereminHero will be performing the opening performance on the second day of the festival (Saturday) at around 8pm (times to be finalised). The event is FREE! – Here’s my event on facebook, and the official event.
As well as the evening performances – which start at 8pm and finish after 2am on both nights – there will be workshops and various events during the day, including an opportunity to try out “Theremin controlled Mario” for yourself.
