Every month a fierce battle is conducted between musicians across the world. Dwelling of Duels pits them against each other to create the best covers and arrangements of video game songs possible, based off monthly themes. Every song has an instrument played live, whether it be guitar, keyboard or even trumpet. At the end of the month the entries are put online to be voted on by the community until a winner is selected.
"MAGFest Month" became a yearly tradition since 2006. The live listening party is being held at the Festival for everybody to listen to the entries and hang out with the musicians who recorded them. Dancing may occur. Wandering cosplayers may drop in and run away in horror. The winning songs are determined by voting and the results are announced at the end of MAGFest.
