Humanarian, a fanfiction author, will present his lyric skills to you as he is holding a master-class panel about poetry. 

Not only will he talk about poetry within the show and the fandom in general, including show song lyrics and quotes, but he will also bring some of his own art to you and present funny and short on-cue poems and riddles about the show characters.

After the opening of the volunteer applications and ticket sales we now also open the vendor registration. If you would like to apply for one of the sought-after tables at the GalaCon 2017, please fill out the form at https://www.galacon.eu/vendor-application/.
We will get in touch with you after the application phase has ended.

Unfortunately we have to pass down the rental fees for the pinboard and the power plug this year due to higher prices. Fees are 15 € for the wall, 15 € for the power supply. We beg your understanding on that matter.

Start of GalaCon 2017 ticket sale and announcing our first guest of honor

Everyone loves to go to the movies once in a while, right? Especially when our beloved little ponies will spread friendship and magic on the silver screen this fall. That is why we here at GalaCon want to celebrate this with this years convention motto

Also we are happy that we can announce our first guest of honor for GalaCon 2017. It will be the wonderful Ashleigh Ball, who lends her voice to two of the mane six characters Applejack and Rainbow Dash. Check out our guests of honor section to learn more about Ashleigh.

Volunteer Applications are open

Hello fellow work horses,

Its time to look forward to GalaCon 2017, and wow will that be an event. Hear everything about it tomorrow at Brony Radio Germany. And you kow whats even more fun than attending? Volunteering!

The sign-ups for volunteers for GalaCon 2017 are now officially opened!

If you want to help us make GalaCon 2017 a great event for everyone involved, just read on. Once again we’re looking for volunteers for several teams that will help us make GalaCon the event of the year.

Volunteering means working while others have fun, you should be aware of that. As compensation, you’ll get free entry in your off-hours, we’ll provide some snacks and water, and maybe we can arrange some more extras for you. And of course you’ll be part of the largest european convention of the year!

Convention language is English, so you should be able to talk to people in English – don’t worry, most visitors won’t be native English speakers either. Due to the strict youth labor regulations on weekends, volunteers need to be over 18 years old to be accepted.

If you want, you can be part of GalaCon 2017, giving everyone an awesome weekend in Ludwigsburg. All you have to do is to head over to our volunteer registration info page!.

Yours,
404compliant – GalaCon Volunteers Relations,
The GalaCon team.
