"Please allow me to introduce myself..."
A Few Words from OvertureCon Founders
Sabrina Greenwood-Briggs and Stacey Lawson
We’ve followed the bands we love on Twitter and Facebook, connected with other fans all around the world and evangelized the albums, tours and bands that we wanted the world to discover. In short, we are fans who are more than willing to spend both our time and money to immerse ourselves in having the best music experiences possible.
There are many music überfans out there just like us who long for ways to connect with bands and with each other. OvertureCon was created with them in mind. It is designed to give fans and bands the opportunity to have meaningful exchanges in an environment that is both intimate and powerful. The approximately 200 attendees will engage with artists at daytime panels and smaller gatherings with the opportunity to rock the night away at exclusive shows.
OvertureCon will also give artists fresh opportunities to gain exposure to new fans while reconnecting with and deepening that connection with their existing fan base. In addition to artists sharing their music with fans during panels and live performances, they will also be able to share other creative endeavors with fans during the con experience.
As fans ourselves we’ve often been frustrated by hit-n-run meet and greets, lame interviews asking the same boring questions of musicians who look less than engaged in the process and the rapid-fire pace of photo ops. When we’ve had the opportunity to engage with the bands we love on a more personal, intimate level, we’ve found the experience to be so rewarding that we wanted to create that kind of experience for fans of all kinds to share!
In the coming weeks, we’ll be asking both fans and bands for their input on the types of panels/experiences they want to have during the convention. We already have many ideas of our own regarding events like relaxed photo ops, casual meet-n-greets, traditional panels, and distinct VIP experiences to be determined. Because OvertureCon is created by fans for fans, we value your input in creating the type of fun, meaningful experiences you want to have.
We want you to be a part of the creative process for deciding what kind of fun things you do!
It’s time to make the overture – and get intimate with music!
