LeakyCon is coming and we are not yet done with announcements and surprises: We're thrilled to announce a PotterCast first today: Wizard rock band Ministry of Magic is set to appear on and perform at the LeakyCon 09 PotterCast (which is Saturday morning the 22nd and free with a conference registration). The band will be performing acoustically as well as sitting down for an interview, and we can't wait. See you there!

And now a bunch of helpful info!

LeakyCon is May 21-24 in Boston, MA, and we are almost out of tickets. You can register here before we are forced to close it.


Tickets to ALL of our keynotes are going fast (and keynotes do not clash with ANY other programming: there is no chance that when signing up for one you will miss anything else). Here, again, are the links to our other two terrific panels:

Q&A with Michael Goldenberg - click here to read, click here to register. (Remember to ADD YOUR QUESTION HERE, even if you are not going to the conference.)

Editors and Authors: Cheryl Klein and John Green - click here to read about it, click here to register.

Nosh with the Nerdfighters - click here to read about it, click here to register.

We are also holding a drawing for a signed one-of-a-kind collection of all 10 American-Edition Harry Potter books, donated by Scholastic and J.K. Rowling. For pics and video of the set, click here. Schedule of Events:

Friday Morning
Friday Afternoon and Evening

Don't forget, the main LeakyCon registration includes:

Welcome Feast
Leaving Feast
The Rocking Charity Ball
THREE enormous wizard rock shows with more than 15 bands performing
All in-conference programming
Vendor Room
Podcasts, including live PotterCast, Spellcast, Spinnerscast and more

And a lot more - an unbelievable value that is unparalleled anywhere. LeakyCon is a charity conference, with all proceeds benefiting Book Aid International and the HP Alliance.

We will see you there!

Just me speaking now but I want to say this: Over the years PotterCast has been so bleeping lucky to be joined by so many talented wonderful groups, like we will be again this summer. I’ve gotten to see so many great groups and speak to them along the way at the various cons and shows. All are fabulous, very diverse and unique in the most joyful sense possible, and I urge you to check out the various groups if you havent yet, I think you will be astonished at the talent and high quality of music. However, the guys in the Ministry are all very talented, and for me personally, when Mark from the Ministry sings, it’s like this amazing, miraculous, dare I say.. magical sound, truly so. Daft I know, but he really is quite talented, they all are; it is a true honor they are joining us!
I know that everyone who might want to can not make it to Leaky Con, but please, if you have not registered yet, now is the time. As for PC I have a feeling yall will be able to hear this at some point, so fear not! :) Thanks again for your continuing support of PotterCast!

Ministry of Magic on Pottercast, oh wow, I really like their music, as I cannot usually listen live (time difference normally prevents) I hope you will get this onto Leaky a.s.a.p. after the event.
