    TrotCon 2015: Community Guests and Musician Applications

    Want to hear something practically insane? It’s already been over four months since TrotCon 2014, and boy, do we miss all of you so.

    So we decided: why not tide everyone over with our first guest announcement of 2014?

    We’re proud to announce that TrotCon 2015 will feature Pixelkitties andTJ Carson, aka Pirate Dash, as guests of honor!

    TrotCon 2015 marks the fourth time we’ve put on a My Little Pony convention in Columbus, Ohio, and Pixelkitties has been there since the beginning. If you’ve spent even just a day on a pony imageboard or browsing through the most delectable My Little Pony art, you’ve seen her work – we’ll bet a few bits on that. She’ll be here again to peddle her wares, from art and prints to other gratifying goodies, plus expect her to appear on a panel or two as well.

    TJ Carson’s in his second year at TrotCon as a guest of honor. You’ll know him from Tumblr, as moderator of Ask Pirate Dash and Ask Mic Boom – so if you’re a Tumblrpon or want to know more about that community, he’s the dude to say, ‘Sup?’ to. He’ll be holding down some Tumblr- and pony-related programming all the weekend long.

    Oh, and what’s that you say? You’re a musician? That’s pretty far out, cowboy, because we’re looking for any and all interested musicians for our 2015 music festivities! Last year we had dozens of artists performing over two nights, and we’re hoping to bring down the house again in 2015 – though not literally, because that might get messy. Interested in applying or know someone who’d be perfect for the job? Hit ‘em up athttp://trotcon.net/registration/music-app/ for more info.

    And on that note, don’t forget panel, vendor and staff applications are currently up on our website! Apply there or email [email protected] for information on how to get up in front of people at TrotCon 2015.

    Sound rad? Nice, really nice. We’ll be held July 17-19, 2015, at our new home of the Crowne Plaza Columbus North in Columbus, Ohio. Badges for the weekend currently run $35 through January, with multiple tiers of sponsor badges available as well over at our registration page –http://trotcon.net/registration/.

    New Convention Added: Summer Wrap Up Festival 2015

    After a year of hard work and preparation, we are proud to finally present the Summer Wrap Up Festival 2015 webpage, dedicated to the first Brony convention ever to be held in Spain and Portugal. This will be the first event of its kind that will be held in a Mediterranean country, and we hope to be able to draw in Bronies from all over Europe, particularly from the two nations we’ve already mentioned.

    Though we still don’t have a date or a location, at the momento we can confirm that our intention is to organize the event for the end of summer 2015, in the city of Madrid.As you can see in our website, the official languages for the event shall be English, Spanish, and Portuguese. However most of our activities, as well as our panels, will be in English, which we will use as a lingua franca, for the benefit of any visiting Bronies from outside of Spain and Portugal.

    The little information we can give at this time, and which we will continue to update and add to on our webpage, is that we can confirm our intention for the entry ticket to be priced between 5 and 10€, though this decision is not yet final. Given that both Spain and Portugal have been affected by the economic crisis, and the citizens from both countries along with them, we will never set any prices that could be deemed unreasonable. We want as much as people as possible, anyone who is interested really, to be able to come and enjoy the event to its fullest.

    All information will be up to our website:

    Organizing this convention is IberBronies, an association that has been organizing Brony events and stands at other conventions in Spain. If you wish to contact us, whether to receive more information or because you’re interested in helping us out, or if you want to take part in the convention, please write to us at our e-mail address: [email protected] you next summer.
