Rock.Con is a new convention created by university student Katie Wills, which will bring the Scottish rock and metal community together.
First post of the year and what a great way to start! This new project grabbed my attention as soon as I heard about it. Rock.Con might be just what the Scottish Rock and Metal community needs. Rock.Con will feature two pop up conventions in 2024, giving people in the rock and metal scene a place to come together to learn and talk about all things Rock and Metal. Think ComicCon but for music.
"The idea of the project is to provide and bring together a networking educational and promotional platform for musicians, bands, creatives and anyone within this space who want to meet others, learn and find opportunities, specifically for this community as there aren't many community events for the Rock and Metal world in Scotland."
The first event will take place on the 3rd of March at The Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh. The event will include guest speakers, a panel discussion, a live podcast, instrumental clinics/workshops, open stage jam and an evening performance which will showcase three bands. Along with this there will be stalls with photographers, videographers, music shops, artists, record labels, basically anyone you would need to book in the music scene. I personally think this is a very exciting event and I'm sure anyone else in our music community would agree. So, if you'd like to go along grab some tickets from the link that I will add below.
More info and tickets for the Glasgow event are coming soon.
