With registrations for GeekyCon 2016 going live in just two days, the folks behind the event have decided to hype up fans as much as possible by announcing the first round of rock special guests. The rock shows are always a highlight of the convention, so the announcement is sure to convince hesitant fans to grab their tickets this weekend!
Past attendees of GeekyCons and LeakyCons will be excited to see some familiar names included with this first announcement:
Harry and the Potters, The Whomping Willows, Tonks and the Aurors, Draco and the Malfoys, and Lauren Fairweather have rocked the hallowed halls of GeekyCon and LeakyCon for years now, so it’s only fitting that they return for 2016. Each performer is best known for wizard wrock, or wrock, which is a music genre all about Harry Potter.
GeekyCon 2016 will feature a 6 hour music festival, so fans of any of these artists should prepare themselves for a show of epic, geeky proportions. The announcement hinted that there are more musical guests to be announced in the future, and we can’t help but wonder who else Mischief Management have hidden up their sleeves.
To get you extra excited for the music festival, here’s a little peek at what you can expect from a GeekyCon rock show:
GeekyCon 2016 will take place in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center from July 29-31. Tickets go on sale Saturday, December 5, at 1pm EST. Rockstar VIP passes are expected to sell out quickly, so if you’re ready to see these bands rock GeekyCon, you should grab your tickets before they’re gone!
