The National Videogame Arcade in Hockley will host the event annually from 2018 onwards

The world of videogames and music will be descending on Nottingham today as the city’s National Videogame Arcade plays host to a new event called “All Your Bass”.

Industry guests from across the world will be present for the festival, which takes place on the 19th and 20th of January and is to become an annual event from 2018 onward.

A selection of talks and concerts will be held during the course of the festival across three venues – The National Videogame Arcade, Nottingham Royal Concert Hall and Antenna.

World-renowned Japanese composer and musician Masaya Matsuura will be in attendance in order to give talks about his latest work – this following on from his appearance at Nottingham’s GameCity festival in 2012.

Rob Hubbard, who is best known for making music for computers in the 1980s, will also be in attendance along with classical music composer Maria Kallionpää and BAFTA-award winning composer Jessica Curry.

Tickets for the event start at £45 for one day, or £80 for a two-day ticket.
