Hello everyone! Today, the Easter Pony has dropped off several amazing surprises, which we would like to share with you.

First of all, we have the great honour to announce the appearance of two fantastic voice actors at this year’s GalaCon: Jennifer Weiß and Julia Meynen. Additionally, we can also look forward to seeing two well-known giants of the brony fandom in Ludwigsburg this summer: EileMonty and LaserPon3.

Jennifer Weiß is known for lending her voice to the German version of our beloved party pony – Jennifer is the German Pinkie Pie. She’s also well known among anime fans for her performance of Ôsaka from “Azumanga Daioh!”. Video gamers will know her from voicing Sylvia Woods in “Inazuma Eleven” as well as several voices she did in the “Professor Layton” franchise.

Julia Meynen, the German voice of Twilight Sparkle, has already visited us back in 2012 at our first GalaCon, “the Grand Galloping Gala for European bronies”, as it was known back then. This summer, after a break last year, she returns to us as Princess Twilight Sparkle. Julia is also quite active in dubbing popular anime characters – only recently voicing Lyfa in “Sword Art Online”. Fans of “Monster High” will also know her as Draculaura.

EileMonty is one of the most popular voices in the international fandom. Besides voicing several fan comics, she’s known for her role of Button’s Mom. But her talent doesn’t end there. As a singer, she knows how to fill entire ballrooms and is quite frequently called for an encore performance or two.

LaserPon3 is a true master of the art of light. Backed by fitting music, he creates intriguing laser shows, letting pony music touch all your senses. Travelling from the beautiful Netherlands, his rainbow colours will brighten up the sky above Ludwigsburg.

So, that’s it for today, but more will follow soon.

GalaCon DoesAThing

BIZAAM!

Only a few more days are left until our ticket sale starts so it is time to reveal a few more community guests – or rather, our bestest flank buddies:

Super Psyguy – Writer for not only all the GalaCon spots since 2012, but also responsible for things like “Vinyl and Neon” and DoesAThing. If you want to know any good internet celeb, you must know him. He had them all on his weekly podcast WhaChow! His internet career started a dozen years ago, and currently he hosts the review show Cartridge Blowers.

Serena Midori – Yes, she is back! And it would have broken our hearts if we couldn’t have her back with us this year. Whatever Canni says comes out of her mouth. She draws, sings, voice acts and does many more artsy things we can not just list here – you simply must see the voice of Canni live!

The following flank buddies will support us in our soon-to-be-launched crowdfunding campaign at StartNext, and if we reach our goal they will attend as well! So: The better it ends, the more we can do not only for the community guests, but also for you!

Crikey Dave – From the magical land of Australia the maker of our last year’s EPCU spot will dig a tunnel through the planet to us with his dragon claws. You might also know him from the Vinyl and Neon animation he did together with The Living Tombstone. He is most popular for his current web series DoesAThing he does together with Super Psyguy. Also you should read his comic MAiZ if you like good fantasy stories.

The Living Tombstone – You asked for more music at the Gala-Disco we now renamed to Gala-Party after a mail wave, and you asked for more musicians – so we present to you one of the best out there: The Living Tombstone. From the sandy coast of Israel he and his mix of Electro Music of all kinds will not be a boring press to play but a vivid experience with tons of fun to boot.

And for now just one “more” thing. The first “+More” feature for BIZAAMers will be special seating. All BIZAAM ticket owners have front rows reserved in our event halls and panel rooms. We will reveal more extras soon!

Before our ticket sale starts on 10th February 2014 at 16:00 EST/ 21:00 UTC/ 22:00 CET we will release more information about more special guests! Stay tuned!

Sincerely,

GalaCon-Team

Knock on the wooden floor – JayB

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

 With the current new moon we entered the year of the wooden horse. To celebrate it appopriately, we booked one outstanding musician for the Gala-Disco:

Johannes Berthold AKA JayB is widely known for his trance remixes and probably the most-known German of the fandom. “Keep Running (feat. Sandra Wagner)”, “Equestria Girls – A Friend for Life (JayB Remix)” or “Hearts Strong as Horses (90s Rock)” are just a few examples of his extensive collection of music you MUST listen to. So: Let’s get ready to PARTY!

And we know that you want to know when you finally can buy our tickets. We wasted enough of your time, so here it is: On the 10th February 2014 at 21:00 UTC (22:00 CET) you will have the opportunity to choose your ticket to the gala – The list below shows you all the details:

We will announce a few more guests until it starts, so keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook, Google+Page or join EuroBronies.
