Bit Bash is an alternative video games arts festival in Chicago, exposing unique and independent games to those who might not traditionally experience them. More street festival than convention, Bit Bash highlights some of the best the scene has to offer. This includes local and international selections, games best experienced with others, or that utilize unique controllers. Games that really push the boundaries.

2016’s event includes a selection of games created by Chicago developers, games dealing with socially relevant issues, and a selection of games that deal with often taboo topics for the 18+ audience. We’ve also got C418 (Minecraft) and Chipzel (Super Hexagon) as part of our amazing music line up.
Our mission is to make video games accessible for everyone by:
- Raising visibility for the growing independent games community.
- Highlighting Chicago as a developing hub for those who love games, technology, or art.
- Connecting with at-risk youth to foster an interest in technology and art.
