    So who's going?

    Personally I don't mind having to pay £20. It's a fun day and hopefully it'll mean a bigger convention space.

    Naturally. =P

    £8.8k and 162 backers at time of writing, and it's been what, 6 hours?
     
  6. Herp derp, conversions. $15k seems kind of far away, though.

    Pretty good use of Kickstarter, maybe.. Anyways, I've got my ticket. No doubt I'll see some of you there.

    No confirmed guests yet though? I'm guessing at the worst, Jun Senoue will play the same shit on stage as usual. (Not that that was ever something to complain about ;) )

    Really glad to see this returning. It has been a couple of years since Summer of Sonic last happened and, while fan gatherings that have been occurring since have been nice, I don't know it just feels like a certain charm has been missing that SoS had. I'm looking forward to seeing how things go.

    I really want to go, but I've my doubts since I'm very tight on money lately. Will need to take a plane from Spain and need some really cheap hotel... do you have any reccomendations of cheap hotels near where SoS will take place? Never been to UK before so this seems like a good chance, always wanted to.

    If nothing else, Senoue's jams at the end of the event are always good to listen to. Although this does pretty much confirm a crowd sing-along for Escape from the City again...

    Also, this is good timing for me. Having finally dragged my heels into finishing off the last bits of Lost World, it'll be nice for Iizuka to bookend the whole thing with an autograph.


    EDIT: UPDATE TIME.


    Well. Fuck. Might have to look into bumping my pledge up a bit. I would be pretty damn happy to see Johnny there as well as Jun.

    Just to let people know, I probably won't be attending this year. That's right, my first SoS no-show.

    I have a special visitor coming into the country over that week, leaving little time or finances to make it to London for the event. I hope everyone has a fantastic time and I want to see plenty of pictures!

    It's a shame, Nova was the only one in our group who'd been to every show. =/ Can't be helped, sadly.

    Aye, very gutted I'll have to stop my run. Organizers aside, I must have been one of a very small number, honestly. This year has been extremely busy, but the dust on everything should have settled in time for the Winter Barcade.
