The 2006 Blip Festival is Now Over!

Huge thanks to everyone who came out and made it a massive success! Over 1,300 people came out over the four days of the festival to see almost 40 performers from around the world. There are tons of photos and videos floating around the web, so be sure to check them out to see what you missed! A feature length documentary about the festival is currently in production...more about that as it develops. For now, you can see the old festival site below.
