Back in May of 2012, Andy Baio and Andy McMillan created a massively successful Kickstarter campaign. Their goal: to create a festival in Portland, Oregon that brings together artists and toolmakers to celebrate disruptive creativity.
Downstairs will feature a marketplace of art and tech that is open to the public. Upstairs will be an art and technology conference with speakers from all over the country. Fringe events will be taking place all over the city, including music, films, video games, and beer/coffee tastings.
The two keynote speakers will be Dan Harmon, creator of Community and Adam Savage, of Mythbusters. Other speakers include folks from Kickstarter, MakerBot, Metafilter, Etsy, 4chan, and Indie Game: The Movie. Check out the full lineup here: http://xoxofest.com/conference/
This festival is completely sold out. The only way to get a ticket was to join their Kickstarter, and all 400 tickets were sold within 50 hours of the Kickstarter launch. We’d like you to attend. We have one extra ticket. It gives full access to the conference, festival and fringe, and an XOXO shirt on arrival.* Here’s your chance at that golden ticket.
