    Trotcon - Musicians and Panels

    We at TrotCon hope your spring's going great, because before you know it, it'll be over -- and we'll be celebrating the end of the season and the beginning of summer with a big ol' blowout at TrotCon.

    As the sun sets on spring and ushers in summer, we'll be having our own Summer Sun Celebration with a plethora of musical guests
    . Over not one, but two nights, we'll be pleasing your ears with the sounds of some of the best of what the fandom has to offer, starting Friday night with our rock showcase. Hard rocker Cyril the Wolf will be our main headliner, with some delicious lead-up action from Survivors of the Siege, the Shakeups in Ponyville and Jeff Burgess. Afterward, we'll be closing out the evening with a combo of musicians and rappers, including Nexgen and Aoshi.

    As for Saturday night? It's all rave, baby. For the second year in a row, Eurobeat Brony will play the hits for you fine folk, kicking the party into full gear with some of the fandom's biggest songs. Around him is a smattering of electronic musicians all rearing and ready to get you dancing from early in the evening until late, late, late into the night. You'll need a cold shower and some breakfast once this is over, because it's gonna be morning.

    At various points over the two days, we'll have Illinois' own pony music veteran 7th Element, Los Angeles up-and-comer DJ Garnika, hard-hitting duo Knife Pony, Columbus' own SMOR3S and a flurry of others. In fact, how about we run down the whole list?

    Come to TrotCon to see: Eurobeat Brony, Cyril the Wolf, 7th Element, Additive Subtractive, Aftermath, Aoshi, Chang31ing, DJ Garnika, DJ Lupo B, DJ Tetsuo, Green Tinted Goggles, Jeff Burgess and the Bad Mares, Knife Pony, LizardRock, Mogul Dash, Nexgen, PhillyPu, PonyFireStone, Purity 36.0, SMOR3S, Sonic Breakbeat, Survivors of the Siege, The Shakeups in Ponyville and YourEnigma.

    But as the late and great Billy Mays might say, we're not done!

    We also have the first wave of our panel programming announced for TrotCon 2014. You'll come for the big-name guests like Andrea Libman, Peter New and Heather Breckel, but stay for the extensive amount of programming we'll offer around the clock from the moment the convention opens until the end of closing ceremonies.

    Want to see Chelis, brony stand-up comedian extraordinaire? TrotCon's got you covered. A panel on how messed up G1 My Little Pony could be? Again, you're good. How the military and bronies can -- and do -- intersect? Of course! A plethora of fanfiction panels? Get those pens ready. Improv and episode transcript reading in crazy voices? We thought you'd never ask. We'll even be featuring the wedding of our very own con-chair, Darkly Cute -- and you're invited! Check out a partial list of panels here
    , with more to come.

    Sound like a good time? Then come on out to TrotCon, this June 20-22 at the Sheraton Columbus at Capitol Square in Columbus, Ohio, and help us celebrate this amazing fandom.
