While triple-A titles will be shown at E3, Devolver Digital will be hosting its own indie event across the street. The Indie Picnic, as they’ve titled it, will be held every day of the convention, June 13th to the 15th, between the hours of 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Anybody with an E3 badge are allowed to enter for free.
Along with indie titles published by Devolver Digital, the picnic will also host games from Indie MEGABOOTH, X-Split, and Gambitious. The Devolver Public Access area will host food trucks, choice music, cold drinks, indie arcade, and carnival games. The backlot will be dedicated to Devolver’s by-appointment demo area.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Devolver Digital to Host All-New Indie Picnic Event Across the Street from E3 2017, Free to All E3 Attendees
New Public Access area features a curated lineup of artisanal indie games, music, food trucks, cold beverages and more
THE PARKING LOT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE LOS ANGELES CONVENTION CENTER’S SOUTH HALL AND NEXT DOOR TO HOOTERS – May 15, 2017 – Semi-truck enthusiasts at Devolver Digital opened their impressively defined arms today and announced Indie Picnic, a free indie games showcase across the street from the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), June 13 – 15, as the company has gleefully obtained the lease to both of the remaining and coveted parking lots.
Indie Picnic is free to badge holders of any kind and will be located in the front parking lot located directly across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center’s South Hall and will run each day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Indie Picnic includes the Devolver Public Access area offering a hand-selected lineup of stellar indie game demos from Devolver Digital and extended families Indie MEGABOOTH, X-Split, and Gambitious with hardware for the event sponsored by NVIDIA, Logitech and Alienware. The Devolver Public Access area will also include choice music, food trucks, cold beverages, an indie arcade by Polycade, and carnival games with prizes provided by Special Reserve Games. Devolver’s usual by-appointment-only game demo oasis will still be located in the back lot.
“This is the week the entire industry and fans everywhere celebrate video games as entertainment and art with numerous events now happening across Los Angeles,” said Mike Wilson, co-founder of Devolver Digital. “Indie Picnic is our way of giving back to the fans and celebrating a mutual love for games and art.”
The Devolver Public Access area of Indie Picnic is set to be livestreamed and full of questionable content for the duration of the event in partnership with best friends X-Split. All those watching from home who want to see what’s going on the week of E3 from the vantage of the outer reaches of the indie bubble will be able to tune in live all three days.
