MondoCon 2015

In 2014, Mondo took things to another level with their first ever convention: MondoCon. We wrote all about it here but, to recap, it was an awesome time for anyone who likes posters and general fun, pop culture madness. This year, they’re doing it again. MondoCon 2015 takes place October 3rd – 4th at The Marchesa Hall & Theater in Austin, TX. That’s the weekend after Fantastic Fest (the two events ran simultaneously last year) and tickets go on sale Thursday April 30.

Below, find out how you can get tickets, the first wave of artists who’ll be attending, and the first two events planned for the weekend.

Here’s the full press release on MondoCon 2015. For more info, visit the official site:

Mondo is thrilled to announce MondoCon 2015, taking place October 3rd – 4th at The Marchesa Hall & Theater in Austin, TX, the weekend following Fantastic Fest. The convention will bring together unique guests from a variety of areas to celebrate film, music, art, and toys with the world’s finest artists, designers, toy creators, directors, composers and more. In addition to the 50+ exhibitors, the second annual MondoCon will offer unique & diverse panel, screening and event programming. This year, the convention will be taking advantage of additional exhibitor & event space in the neighboring Holiday Inn Midtown Conference Center.

A full schedule of panels & screenings will be announced in the coming months, but for now Mondo is excited to present the initial list of confirmed guests (featuring both new & returning exhibitors) and a preview of a few exciting events taking place throughout the weekend.
