New Location!

We are proud to announce that IndieCade Festival 2016 will be held on the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles.

As part of our partnership with USC, USC students can attend the regular exhibits, Fri-Sun, for free with student ID. Students must still go through registration on-site.

All Access vs. think:indie

Why doesn't the All-Access Pass include think:indie? Doesn’t All mean everything? think:indie is a separate participatory summit that runs throughout the day on Saturday and on Sunday morning. Particpating in think:indie requires that you attend all of think:indie and thus you have to choose to either attend think:indie or go to All of the other activities and events included in All-Access. There is an overlap however in that think:indie also includes the Friday Festival events, and Night Games.
