Games Gig is the official Thursday night Freeplay Festival event, a music focused afterparty featuring a line-up of indie, pop, and electronic game composers performing their music from Melbourne indie games.
Come and grab some food and drinks, chat and celebrate the year with some awesome music at one of Melbourne’s iconic music venues, The Toff in Town!
Games Gig came about with muso/game devs Jacob Leaney and Maize Wallin wanting to showcase game music that doesn’t often get a chance to be seen and heard live, performed by the people that wrote it. Games Gig focuses heavily on electronic and pop music, in contrast to orchestral and chiptune focused game music events. It’s an event for Freeplay Festival attendees, indie game devs, local musicians, and music lovers to socialise and celebrate games and music after a long year of minimal in-person events.
