We have a mix of bad and good news today regarding some of the upcoming Harry Potter conferences:

First the good news, as Terminus has announced a new Twenty-Fifth Band Competition for their Wrock Chicago event, the all-day wizard rock festival that will be held the day before the conference begins in August. This new competition is open to Wizarding Rock bands who have "at least five completed, recorded and publicly available songs based on J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series." The winning group will be the 25th band and complete the line-up for the all day Wizard Rock concert to be held August 6, 2008. All entries must be submitted by March 5, 2008. For more on the rules and how to enter, click here. Terminus will be held in Chicago, Illinois August 7-11, 2008.

Also, for those heading south this year for Portus, the Harry Potter symposium set for Dallas, Texas July 10-13, 2008, be sure to check out the latest edition of the Portal newsletter. The conference has details on a special pre-event gathering to be held February 23 in Dallas where you can meet some of those already registered for Portus. For more on this conference, click here.

Finally, there is some bad news for those hoping to attend the Sectus 09 Harry Potter conference next year in the UK. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons the chairperson was unable to continue leading the event, and without a suitable replacement available, the event that was to be held in Wales June 26-29 of 2009 is now canceled. Refunds are being offered to those who had already registered for the event; for more on this situation, please click here.
