I’m not even halfway when it comes to my selection of the top things to look out for in 2014 – lotsa treats to come, including the two below. Get yer diaries out!
You may have already planned your con schedule for 2014 but the rising profile of geek-friendly conventions in the UK means that there’s more choice than ever! Whether you’re itching to go full cosplay wielding a lightsaber or are just curious to dip your toes in the growing pool of genre get-togethers, there’s an event for you. From show-specific shindigs to all-encompassing geek-outs, you’ll find the one: for me, it’s Birmingham Comic-Con and Memorabilia – and I may just join fellow worshippers at Hallowhedon this year! Have fun, ya big nerds.
Unless you’re lucky enough to get a Golden Ticket in spring’s resale, you won’t be going to Glastonbury this year if you didn’t snap up a ticket last year. However, thanks to comprehensive coverage, you can experience Worthy Farm’s wonders without worrying about your next trip to the loo. With the likes of Prince and Madonna in the frame (I’m jumping the fence if this happens), it’s set to continue holding the crown as the UK’s/world’s best festival.
So far, Arcade Fire are signed up to head the Pyramid Stage. Make sure you book your summer hol either side of the big weekend so you can chill out with some frosty beers in the comfort of your living room – won’t this sound great on the Pyramid/your TV??
