"From tech innovation to cryptocurrency, video to board games, future of gaming composition to future of UFO findings, we've got all your insatiable tech curiosities covered," Treefort Music Fest promised in its first update on Hackfort 2018. Featuring events like "Helping Rockstars Become Nerds: Music For Video Games," "Defending Digital Democracy: A Workshop in Cybersecurity" and "Revival of the Nerd Culture," where Den of Geek Deputy Editor Chris Longo will explain how gamers became not just societally accepted, but cool, Hackfort is a dreamscape for tech-savvy citizens. Aside from the workshops and lectures, gamers can take a break from their screens at a series of food-centric events, like a "Detox Brunch" complete with omelets and bloody marys.
