Friday: Rock Night, 8pm to midnight, featuring Harry and the Potters, The Whomping Willows, Gred and Forge, and Tonks and the Aurors

Saturday we will have an afternoon show (with a title to be announced) from 1pm to 5pm, will featuring The Remus Lupins, The Moaning Myrtles, The Mudbloods and RiddleTM.

That’s twelve bands! Admission to all shows comes with a conference ticket, which you can get right here.

Soooo excited!!!!!!!! THIS IS THE BEST!!!!!!Avatar Image says: TannerParadox I so agree! (Gred and Forge and MoM = my favorite bands) too bad I can't go anyway. (I live in Florida). And also I'm wondering why JFF is considered "evil" b/c how many evil Hufflepuff's have there been... ? I would say very,very few (if any). Me? I'm waiting for Infinitus in 2010! =]Avatar Image says: Why is Justin evil? Besides that- awww, that lineup sounds great; I really wish I could be there.Avatar Image says: sooooo excited! MoM being there would completely make my life, though.Avatar Image says: you should switch JFF and RiddleTM.Avatar Image says: Lmao. JFF is the band that all the Slytherins pick on! You can't be evil without someone to pick on!Avatar Image says: SAD! Oh man! So many awesome bands playing right nearby where I will be working for the entirety of Leaky Con. Stupid job. :'-(Avatar Image says: ceguyomvpaxcetgolubxagbjzlwlcrAvatar Image says: Since when is JFF evil?? Lol either way this looks amazing. Avatar Image says: I think the third show should be called the Sweet Wrockers night. All those people are the sweetest peope!Avatar Image says: I'm a tad disappointed there's no mention of MoM or OBatR, amongst a few other lesser known bands, but nevertheless that's a great lineup. I'm thrilled that Vic and Georgia will be playing. Makes me very very happy!Avatar Image says: Argh! This is so unfair. I actually live about twenty minutes from the venue, and I can't go because my parents won't foot the bill for registration. Curses! I really want to go!Avatar Image says: okay, that's it. i have to come. doesn't matter what my parents says, or how much money im going to have to raise for this, IM COMING. these are the best bands EVER. except, no ministry of magic?? :(
