The Biggest Sonic Convention is Back… For One More Run!

It’s been a while, but we’re back! To celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th Anniversary, the Summer of Sonic is returning to host the biggest fan convention ever!

Since 2008 we have been entertaining fans with a day-long party that allows the young (and young-at-heart) to come together and meet up – against an electric backdrop full of live music, art contests, official Sonic game demos and meet and greets with the celebrities behind your favourite franchise!

After a two-year hiatus, we want to do it all again! But this time we need your help to make the show as fantastic as we can possibly make it. So we are introducing a Kickstarter project to Summer of Sonic 2016 in order to raise the funds we need to host an epic Sonic party right in the middle of London!

We understand that in previous years, we have given away tickets for Summer of Sonic for free on our website; for 2016, we are selling entrance to the convention via our Kickstarter page. So if you’d like to help us host a great show, and get an exclusive invitation to a fully SEGA-supported event to celebrate Sonic’s 25th, we’d really appreciate it if you considered pledging to our project.

We have set a goal that we feel is realistic for us to put on a show that matches the fun and excitement that we have hosted in the past, and we hope you’ll help us get there – together! We will of course look to updating the Kickstarter project over the course of its 30-day life too, so do keep an eye on the page for the latest updates.

The full Summer of Sonic 2016 Official Website will be coming soon. Until then, you can find our Kickstarter page right here, where we answer all your questions about the show, including date and venue details: Thank you so much in advance for your support – from 2008 right through to 2016!

  1. To whom it may concern,

    I attended Summer of Sonic last night and it was my first time ever attending a Sonic convention. I’ve been a follower of conventions from MCM, to London Film and Comic Con and more and I have to say that this was one of the best events I have ever attended. I am so glad I donated to the kickstarter, Adam Tuff did a wonderful job hosting and the atmosphere was absolutely electric. I know that this last convention was called ‘One more run’ but I really hope to see Summer of Sonic return in the near future because I think I speak for all who attended when I say I would not hesitate one bit to donate to this again. An absolutely electrifying show. Congratulations and thank you so much.

    Best regards,


  2. Thank you for the brilliant convention! it was a blast to be there after the last one I went to in 2012 (Brighton) Glad I didn’t have to rush back this year and very good work to staff and volunteers and everyone else! Here’s hoping they decide to do one again in the future!
