    The Fun Worth Having Concert on Friday will star none other than Hey Ocean!. Featuring the vocal talent of Ashleigh Ball, the voice actress for Rainbow Dash and Applejack, Hey Ocean! will be signing autographs during the day and will performing that night. With a captivating and energetic live show that has garnered them a reputation as one of Canada’s best young bands, Hey Ocean! will join with our other Fun Worth Having musicians in making Friday June 28th a night you’ll remember for years to come.

    Pon3techtronica, our Saturday night electronic concert, is filled with so much wub that Vinyl Scratch herself would be impressed. Featuring the high energy music of Omnipony and Seventh Element, exciting live mixing by DJ Midli, and the beautiful singing voice of Rina-chan- with more guests to come- Pon3techtronica is an event you won’t want to miss!

    P.S. Fiesta Equestria! 2013’s press releases have more unnecessary exclamation points, per capita, then comparable conventions’. Support unnecessary exclamations. Come to Fiesta Equestria! 2013!
