HeavyCon is a new three-day event, the first of which is to be held in the birth place of heavy metal Birmingham. The show will take place on the 30th September – 2nd October 2016 at the NEC!

HeavyCon is a fan-driven show, similar in format to Comic and Fan events, but aimed at Metal and Rock music. We’re creating a new space where artists can connect with their audience, fans get the chance to interact with their heroes, get your hands on some exclusive merchandise and a ton of other cool stuff to mix with bands and brands.

The show comprises of four main elements: Exhibition, Signing Hall, HeavyCon Stage and a number of Heavy Sessions. The content on the HeavyCon Stage will be spoken word – HeavyCon is not a music festival and any live music would be the exception, rather than the norm.

The Signing Hall is where fans can get up close! Unlike other fan-driven events HeavyCon isn’t charging fans per autograph, instead buying a gold or black tickets (limited numbers available) grants access to the Signing Hall (along with all the other parts of the event).

The Heavy Sessions will host a range of different programs, from panel discussions to master-classes.

In the exhibition hall there are a range of great features check out ‘What’s On’ on the HeavyCon website for more information.
