The inaugural Snow Ball took place in December 2009, and it was the first ever fan organised event held in Edinburgh - the city that JK Rowling calls home, and where the Harry Potter books were brought to life. Since then it has become Europe’s premiere Wizard Rock event featuring bands from Scotland, England, Ireland, Germany, and of course, headline acts from the US.
As well as this, the Snow Ball Charity Fund has helped support Cancer Research UK and the Harry Potter Alliance by raising a whopping 984.67GBP (or $1560 aprox.) during our previous two shows.
This year we have teamed up with the Edinburgh University Harry Potter Society and Alohomora 2013 to bring you an even bigger and better event. Our new home in Edinburgh University’s Teviot House holds over 400 people and, for the first time ever, it will be an all ages show.
Featuring the original Wizard Rock band from America:
and from this side of the Atlantic:
- ROMILDA VANE AND THE CHOCOLATE CAULDRONS
- SIRIUSLY HAZZA P

There is some disappointing news tonight as it was just announced that Wrockfest in the Forest of Dean scheduled for October 12 - 15 in Greensboro, North Carolina has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond the organizers control.
Organizers will be working with the individual registrants over the net several weeks to refund fees; however, other expenses incurred will not be able to be refunded.
There is an investigation to possibly holding a smaller, informal gathering in the area of Greensboro, North Carolina that same weekend, but nothing is official at this time. Information for this will be posted on the Wrockfest in the Forest of Dean website if something is arranged.
For more information, contact the organizers of Wrockstock at WrockinNC@gmail.com.

Hailed as the founders of the wizard rock genre - a DIY music movement boasting nearly 1000 bands that play songs relating to the Harry Potter book series - Harry and the Potters formed in 2002 with brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge, and have since released three full length albums and played in over 600 shows all over the world. The DeGeorge brothers also co-founded the Harry Potter Alliance non-profit organization that makes activism accessible for young people by using the Harry Potter books as an access point to discuss pressing issues of social justice.
Harry and the Potters are a mashup of pop culture, punk rock, performance art, meta literary critique, and DIY ethics. Using the power of rock and roll as a weapon against evil, they answer the question: What would happen if Harry Potter quit the quidditch team, stole a time turner, and started a punk rock band with himself from an earlier point in the space-time continuum?
This Summer, the group will tour around the country to celebrate their ten years together, and on top of that, they will be touring with the Potter Puppet Pals.
Here are the Summer tour dates:
- July 18 | Prescott, AZ | Prescott Plaza*
