Ongaku Overdrive is happy to have extremely talented musical acts, both local and from afar, come out to perform live at the event! There will be a mix of rock, chiptunes, J-Pop, hip-hop, and electronic music, all drawing inspiration from videogames, anime, comic books, and other realms of glorious geekdom.
New to this year’s Ongaku Overdrive is the popular Armcannon, well-known for their rockin’ renditions of classic videogame music; otaku emcee Cashamill Anime Boy; chiptunes/pop artist Professor Shyguy; videogame/vocaloid synth-rock band, Final Weapon; chiptunes master and guitar shredder, Danimal Cannon; and last but not least, the legendary teacher/rapper/hero, Mega Ran.
“I’m always looking forward to shows in Orlando but this lineup is a slam dunk,” said Mega Ran, known worldwide for his retro videogame hip hop. “Can’t wait to get back out there and play some new jams for the people of O-Town”
Returning to Ongaku Overdrive is the lovely and talented J-Pop artist, Rai Kamishiro, otaku king and rapper extraordinaire, Richie Branson; geek rock band, Sci-Fried; videogame remixer and DJ, Benjamin Briggs; hip-hop emcee and pop culture fanatic, Adam WarRock; and the 16-bit wizards known as MagiTek.
