Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th anniversary keeps getting better with the announcement of Sonic Revolution, the 7th year that the event has been concurrently going and is the 2nd one to be online. The event has been a Los Angeles-located Sonic convention but due to the Covid-19 virus, the event will be hosted online through the Sonic Revolution Discord servers. Front runners Shanye (@sonicremix) and Licide (@Angelidia) are back to bring the biggest Sonic fan convention in the world on June 19th and 20th, 2021.
Composer of many Sega Genesis games, contributor to Sonic and the Black Knight soundtrack and co-founder of Video Games LIVE!, Tommy Tallarico has just been announced as a special guest at Sonic Revolution on June 15. Tommy will be discussing his work and will be answering questions for the fans. Sonic Revolution posted the following on their Facebook status.
We’re proud to announce that composer Tommy Tallarico of Video Games Live fame will be a special guest at our event. Mr. Tallarico will be talking about his work with Sonic music (he was one of the contributors to Sonic and the Black Knight’s soundtrack) as well as video game music in general. The audience will be more than welcome to ask him questions!
You may remember hearing of a small Sonic fan gathering in Orange County last year called “Sonic Boom West Chapter”. It was put together by several So Cal Sonic fans including Tanner Bates who you may have heard on our latest episode of Sonic Talk. It was during that gathering that the plans for Sonic Revolution was put in it’s early stages. Since then, I’ve become a part of this group and have helped (a little) in bringing Sonic Revolution into a full fledged convention.
The Sonic Revolution convention has now been announced for Sunday, June 15 at the Holiday Inn at Buena Park, California (close to Disneyland). While we’re still gathering more guests for the event (Sonic Boom producer Stephen Frost has shown interest), so far we have the producers of the upcoming fan film Sonic prologue coming in with an exclusive clip and a Q&A. Also, Sonic cover band Serenity Seven will be on hand for music. There will also be an artists alley you can register a booth (for free) and giveaways and more prizes.
Tickets will be available (for free) March 1st. For more info and to keep up with new information, check out the event page on Facebook here.
