Cloudsdale Brony Convention Launching Indiegogo
Denver, February 26, 2013: A group of Colorado Bronies today announce CloudsdaleCon, a new Brony Convention in Denver, Colorado. The place where the convention will be held is still unknown, but the staff has said that they are aiming to hold the con in early 2014.
“Right now,” says Lochlan O’Neil, one of the Convention organizers, “We really need to raise money. We hope to have a great convention and unless we want to have a fallout like Los Pegasus, we are going to have to work hard to get everything put together.” CloudsdaleCon has set up a group fundraising site on Indiegogo which can be found here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cloudsdalecon
CloudsdaleCon’s aim is to bring together Bronies from Colorado and surrounding states for a fun time. Events such as “The Rave-bow Factory” and “Breakfast with the Background Ponies” are being planned. Kyle Krawiec, one of the main art directors says, “We are putting a lot of work into the art and website (we have a temporary one up for now) and I’m sure that this will be a great con. Even if you can donate money, and volunteering would be a huge help.”
A lot of things need to be done in order for this con to be a success. A location needs to be decided on, guests need to be booked. “We really need to get the word out,” says O’Neil, “We need vendors, DJs, panelists, etc. Anything anyone can do would be a big help.”

BronyCon Finalizes BronyPalooza
BronyCon Finalizes BronyPalooza — 2 Days, 12 hours, 33 Musicians
Last but not least, BronyCon has finalized its extensive and legendary lineup for BronyPalooza 2013, the largest brony concert in the world that covers a wide range of musical genres.
The demand this year was so great with an overwhelming 89 hours of performance time requested that BronyCon has decided to extend BronyPalooza across two days of the convention, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2-3, for a total concert time of 12 hours.
After making incredibly tough decisions of who to select from the 150 applicants, BronyCon is excited to expand its performance list to 33 musicians with the addition of Assertive Fluttershy, Metajoker, Jeff Burgess, Flaedr, PhillyPu, Chain Algorithm, dBPony, Replacer and Feather.
The Baltimore Convention Center also offers the space for BronyPalooza to accommodate an audience of 6,000 bronies—which is enough to fit the entire attendance of BronyCon Summer 2012 with plenty of room to spare!
