It’s August 22nd, and Con of Thrones tickets are finally on sale. I’ve spent the weekend in Nashville working at the Gaylord Opryland (the rallying point of our houses and factions within the Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire communities come next Summer- here’s the announcement post), and holy gods is this going to be an incredible weekend.
Balconies, waterfalls, city streets, alleys with banners hanging and nighttime lighting to frame days of programs, panels, discussions, workshops, interviews, cosplay, concerts and merrymaking. It is going to be unreal.
Last night we threw a pre-launch party with Nashville fandom locals, members of the press, and an awesome group of full contact foam weapon fighters — wine was poured and laughs were shared. The city of Nashville will play an important role in this convention, and last night was the perfect way to kick things off.
Scheduling, special guests, information on proposing your ideas and support for programming are all coming. Earlybird tickets are now on sale, and we are steadily working to bring you news when available. In the mean time, if you’re interested in taking the black and volunteering for the Watch, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s all for now. Thank you for the support and energy driving this forward, everyone!
