HeavyCon Moves To Bigger Venue Due To High Demand


(TeamRock Radio) HeavyCon organizers have announced that the rock and metal convention will now take place in Birmingham "due to overwhelming demand." The inaugural HeavyCon was due to take place at ExCel London in Royal Victoria Dock between September 30 and October 2, but will now be held at the NEC in Birmingham instead.

The move to a bigger venue will allow the addition of a string of new features, including a Motorhead Museum which includes the band's Bomber lighting rig, which featured on the cover of 1981 live album No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith and has dominated their live production since the late 70s.

A HeavyArt exhibition area will showcase artwork by Mark Wilkinson and the late Storm Thorgerson. Wilkinson's long-time collaborators include Marillion, Fish, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, and he'll be on site to discuss his life and work, with an opportunity for you to acquire some very rare pieces.
