Even though all competitor spots are filled, spectator tickets are on sale right here, right now for only $10.
Why come to IGC if I can’t compete?
Firstly, that’s silly. Just because tickets are sold out doesn’t mean you can’t compete. You just need to get on our waiting list and show up early on the day of the event. To get on the list, you must purchase a spectator ticket first. So there you go!
Secondly, even if you can’t compete, this IGC is literally going to be ridiculous. We’re bringing back all of your favorite events and workshops from last year and stewing up some crazy new stuff, too.
So obviously you’ve got the Legends Tournament, the main event featuring 16 glovers who have all won previous BOSS or IGC titles, which 2014 champ [PM] Ice Kream Teddy has spent the last year trimming his beard for. But he’s got some tough competition, this time from all over the country. You’ve got winners from past IGC’s [MM] Thumper and [PM] Munch,plus this year’s regional BOSS winners [PM] Rhapsode(Huntington Beach, CA), [MOB] Vex (Lithia, FL), Machine (Houston, TX), [T.V.] Pilgrim(Frenchtown, NJ), [3M] Jest (Stillwater, MN) and [PM] Cypher (Fullerton, CA).
To round out the remaining 7 spots in the 16-man single elimination Legends Bracket, we will host Fan Voting to fill 5 spots, and of course reserve the last 2 spots for the winners from the afternoon’s Open Tournament.
This year we were able to score the only bear in EDM that throws down harder than us, Bear Grillz. This bear has been leaving his tracks all over the scene and we’re stoked to pick him up to play a full set between the Open and Legends tournaments. Plus we scored the one and onlyBlitzento open for him!
Another rising star we’ve had our eye on is one of the queens of fingerstyles and dance, World of Dance hostess Dytto.After she chilled with us earlier this year and recorded a feature, we converted her into a big gloving fan, so this is gonna be good.
Animated J is also on the bill, who we also had the great pleasure of working with this year on one of my personal favorite features, Coloured Glass. He’s coming in from Pennsylvania and he’ll be performing and leading workshops, definitely ask this guy for a show!
IGC is a celebration of all lights, featuring a partner LED hula hoop performance by Hooptown Hotties’ Miss Mojangles and PixieTails sponsored hooper Jenn Ranalli (otherwise known as [KP] Foxxy, who took 4th place at May BOSS this year in Miami!).
Can’t forget about the spinners, we’re also hooking up a sick glow poi and glowsticking performance by one of our mindblowing friends Jaimison Salazar.
We’ll be running Gloving 101 workshops in the afternoon alongside the open tournament. Whoops, did I see an orbiting workshop down there, too?
- [IM] Mez – Clocking Workshop
- [3M] Jest – Mudra Hand Yoga Workshop
- [PM] Munch – Conjuring Workshop
- [PM] Gambit + [PM] JBake – Tutting Workshop
