HeroFestival: The Festival of Heroes is back to Marseille in November!

The third edition of HeroFestival will take place on November 12th and 13th at the Parc Chanot in Marseille.

This year, HeroFestival will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pokémon and, of course, the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. HeroFestival will also great us with a whole bunch of great guests! There will be many authors and illustrators attending the event as well as around 20 well-known Youtubers. Moreover, there will be 2 special guests. So far, we only know one: Dean-Charles Chapman, better known as King Tommen in Game of Thrones!

HeroFestival will feature 4 spaces with a special atmosphere in each:

  • Konoha, the Asian universe featuring manga, anime and martial arts
  • Broceliande, the European universe, featuring a medieval village, witches and sorcerers as well as Steampunks
  • Krypton, the American universe, featuring Superheroes, Sci-fi, cinema and comics
  • Ludopolis, an area dedicated to games and new technologies

Many cool activities will be proposed, among which retro gaming, laser sword fighting and Virtual Reality testing! Cosplaying will also be at the rendezvous, with a cosplay defile and a cosplay contest planned in the program. Let’s assume there will be lots of great costumes, from Game of Thrones and Matrix to The Witcher, Assassin’s Creed, Harry Potter and many more!

News are still coming out every day, so we will keep you informed! The main remaining question is: who is this second special guest that we are teased about? New guests, activities and surprises should be popping up in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out there for them!

The Daily Fandom will be covering the HeroFestival, so follow us on Twitter for live news of the event! If you are attending the event, do not hesitate to get in touch, say hi and take a pic with us for the record!


About Author

My name is Julie Escurignan, and as you can guess, I am a Fan and an Academic: a Fan of TV series and a PhD Student in Film and Television Studies at the University of Roehampton, London. I am passionate about TV series and fandom, that is why my PhD is on HBO-Game of Thrones' transnational fans and transmedia experience. Through my research, I am trying to understand what the experience of the fans of Game of Thrones is, i.e how we, as fans, experience the GoT universe, from the TV series to the online platforms, material creations and fans’ meetings.
