To the geeks go the glory at ConBravo!, Hamilton's annual celebration of the best of geek culture. This three-day festival revels in the worlds of gaming, anime, and pop culture with a parade of panels, guest appearances, concerts, cosplay, and button-mashing excitement. Here are some of the highlights.
- The Guest Stars: an all-star cast of YouTube sensations and geek culture celebrities, including musicians Adriana “Adrisaurus” Figueroa, Brent "Brentalfloss" Black, and Binding of Isaac composer FamilyJules7X, who specializes in heavy metal video game medleys. Other guests include ScrewAttack gaming authorities Ben Singer and Chad James, and Atop the Fourth Wall host Linkara.
- The Gaming: Go old-school at the arcade, featuring classics such as Dance Dance Revolution and Street Fighter III, throw down in a live action version of Mario Party or an old-fashioned LAN party, enlist in a LARP war or Nerf battle, or gather some Magic at tabletop gaming tournaments.
- Other Festivities: Make friends with fellow geeks at a Saturday night party social, attend late night events in the hotel’s breakout rooms, and show off your cosplay skills.
