    This possible reference was sent into us today and we thought we'd let you guys judge! Those names sure do seem awfully close to Celestia and Brony to me. What do you guys think?



    Tonight's Successful Meetups



    Lunafest 2013




    Lunafest 2013 happened here in Hamburg, Germany with over 225 attendees from all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland. With Travel distances over 800 kilometers. Some even put themselves some money together to rent a bus and bronify it, to get to this event!
     
    A tremendous party on over 400 cubic meters with free Drinks, BBQ, merchandise, games and of course, lots of music. Not only from out talented Djs Serano, Dark Cloud and Dark Koushirou, also from on of our communitys bagpiperplayer McKay. Not only did he perfomed renowned scottisch songs, he also performed winter wrap up.
    The Lunafest started with a cinema with various movies, and the gaming area, where Trotmania, Singing is Magic and Fighting is Magic could have been played. The Disco afterwards ended 4 o´clock with everypony exhausted or/ and wasted.
     
    Have a Video with some Highlights from our attendee Rariedash ( rariedash.deviantart.com), who also made Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy for Fighting is Magic, which he hosted on Lunafest with a tournament in our small group. You see some amazing talent selling their merchandise like plushies, chains, boards, glasses, art and lots more!
    Lunafest also had the combined efforts of Atalon the deer and Gray to bring you these amazing, eyeglowing Luna Heads

    Here in action on stage

    No one had to go hungry. We not only had BBQ prepared, we also had free drinks, muffins, Cupcakes and normal cakes with Lunafest theme.
    We had a drawn picture by Fen_Fire for a lot of attendees with their own OC just for this occasion.
     
    Lunafest 2013 was a full success. Yes we had some hickups, but the crowd was again amazing and the party went on deep into the night. We, like out fandom, are still young and learning. We hope to achieve a even bigger festival next year for our princess of the night!
    But before I leave you. One of our community members RX1603 made a well edited music Video with Ken Aschorp – 20 percent cooler starring Icy as the Rapper. All of it was filmed on location the same night!
    Even myself, as as the organisator, am excited for the Lunafest 2014, where we put everything we learned again to the next Level and create an even better festival for this awesome community!
