Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom 2013 Announced and Dated

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom return in 2013!

Summer of Sonic will be taking place in London, UK at the Westminster Central Hall on August 3rd.

Sonic Boom will be taking place in St. Louis, MO, USA at The Pageant on August 10th. Doors open at 5pm.

More details regarding ticketing and event specifics will be announced soon.

A final word from myself: some of you may or may not know that I have been a member of staff at Summer of Sonic for the past 5 years, but sadly I will not be able to staff or attend this year’s event. If you are a Sonic fan then please make sure you attend Summer of Sonic as it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and has enabled me to meet loads of new people and make a whole heap of new friends.

Good luck to the team this year (and the chap/chapette who gets to take on my job!) and I’m sure it will be as brilliant as ever!

Video Spotlight: Summer of Sonic 2012

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

So another Summer of Sonic comes to a close. The annual Sonic convention created by fans and run by fans was hit with a major stroke of bad luck when the original venue suffered from a power-cut which led to an electrical fire. Luckily, an alternative venue was acquired just in the nick of time and the convention was moved from the Hove Centre to the Brighton Centre in just 3 hours.

Despite the set-back, this year’s Summer of Sonic turned into one of the best and everyone who staffed it did an amazing job. Hopefully, all our attendees had a fantastic time!

Here’s some footage we managed to shoot while we weren’t busy elsewhere; enjoy!
