2015 MTV2 Fandom Awards and Fan Fest-- Thursday July 9th
« on: June 15, 2015, 10:19:52 PM »
"YOU COULD BE AT THE FANDOM AWARDS!"--


It was first reported back in November 2014 that the MTV Fan Fest would be returning to SDCC in 2015, and since then, not a lot of information has been released about the event.

I've been told we're getting an announcement this week. Press apps for the event are open (though they haven't even confirmed if they're returning to Petco, though we all assume they are).

Voting opened up for the Fandom Awards. Gives us an idea of the celebrities that might show up for it.

The official press release confirms it will be at Petco Park. No surprise there. No word yet about any bands or singers scheduled to perform.

"MTV  today announced that Tyler Posey ("Teen Wolf") and Bella Thorne ("Scream") are set to host the second annual "MTV Fandom Awards," which honors diehard fans whose tenacious excitement has pushed movies, TV shows, books and comics from subculture to mainstream worldwide success in the past year.

This year's hosts will join the party at the network's "MTV Fandom Fest," a free party at Petco Park open to all Comic Con badge holders featuring food, drinks, games and giveaways, on Thursday, July 9. The day-long fan event will lead into the taping of the "MTV Fandom Awards Special," which will premiere Sunday, July 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV."

Really curious who they get to perform for this.  I don't know if there was any more perfect band for the Comic Con crowd than Linkin Park last year.

Anyone who went last year, how was it?

I went last year and it was fun. The awards show was a bit of a disaster and the wait for the band was long, however the free drinks (2 I think) and free food item was nice :) it was worth it!

@Vapors

iogpysch was right it was a little disorganized and late but..............

It was insanely fun!!  The crowd was chill (attitude wise, bananas concert wise) and was packed.  I went with Dolphina and we were right at the front of the stage and we saw some GOT folks, Chloe Grace Moretz, cast of Teen Wolf and some others i'm struggling to remember. 

Linkin Park was on point and that was easily the funnest night I had during the con.

Excellent representation! You said what I was trying to say! Apparently I'm already mentally exhausted today!

I missed this last year because I arrived late.  About what time should we start lining up, I'll be in SD but not sure where in SD and would like to know when to get there so I don't miss it.  If you want to pm me instead to let me know that's fine too.

I see this years being a little easier to get into since most will line up for Star Wars the next day.

Maybe All Time Low will be performing? They (or their fans, I guess) are nominated for a Fandom Award.
They played the Her Universe Fashion Show after party at SDCC last year and liked it, and their tour schedule is open for the whole first half of July.
