MISTI-Con 2013 is proud to announce a new partnership with MuggleNet to create programming at this immersive Harry Potter fan experience taking place in May 2013. MISTI-Con's main focus centers on the talent, art and achievements of the members of the fandom itself, highlighting the fantastic participatory nature of the fan community.
In this exclusive partnership, MuggleNet will also provide selected programming, including a live podcast with MuggleNet's Alohomora! for the conference. Unlike most other fan conventions, The Margate will provide MISTI-Con with exclusive use of their hotel. All the rooms, conference halls and common areas will be for MISTI-Con's use and more importantly, all hotel guests will be MISTI-Con attendees. This means extensive decoration of the grounds, hotel suites, and even pool area, to highlight further the complete experience of this conference environment.
To help get the project off the ground, Potter fans can support MISTI-Con through their Kickstarter page, with some fantastic rewards including early registration packages. Other rewards include t-shirts, custom lapel pins, a complete signed set of the Strangely Beautiful Saga by Leanna Renee Hieber (along with other signed books and limited eidtion ARCs), original artwork, custom songs written by wizard rock artists, and more. Early bird registration is available now through the project's page at $150 right here.
MISTI-Con is also proud to announce a shortlist of of special events planned for the convention including:
- The Opening Gala Spectacular featuring The Zero Hour Collective, a performance troupe from Chicago.
- A special performance by Charlie Ross (of One Man Star Wars and One Man Lord of the Rings fame).
- A Wizard Rock Nightclub Show Staring: Diagon Alley, Undesirable #1, The Blibbering Humdingers, Lily and James and more!
- The Ministry Masquerade Ball.
