Blizzard recently announced a special event for their 25th anniversary that will go down just outside of Blizzcon. They needed a DJ so they went with actor Kristian Nairn, who is better known as Hodor from Game of Thrones. That’s right; Hodor will be DJing at a special Blizzard event.
On Friday November 4th, from 8pm to 10pm Blizzard will be celebrating outside of Blizzcon. In the Grand Plaza, just outside of the Anaheim Convention Center this event will be going down. Don’t have a ticket to Blizzcon? No problem, this is free and open to the public (and admission is free), so anyone and everyone can show up to have a good time.
According to the Blizzard announcement, “25 years ago, a small group of gamers set out to create the kinds of game experiences they loved playing—and Blizzard Entertainment was born. Since then, the team at Blizzard has transported millions of people around the world to fantastic worlds of fantasy and science fiction—including Diablo’s Sanctuary, which first invited players to descend into the terrifying labyrinth beneath the Tristram Cathedral 20 years ago in 1996!”
Blizzard is turning 25, and Diablo is turning 20. Do you think they’d let the celebration go with just refreshments and a DJ? Well you’d be wrong! There will also be a live performance by the Blizzcon talent contest winners, Songhammer. They’re an epic rock band and the performance is sure to be one to remember.
Of course, Songhammer and Kristian Nairn are just two of the things we know will happen at the event. Blizzard has also promised “Specialty beverages,” food trucks, epic fun, and even some surprises. If you’re anywhere near the area, it is definitely not something that you want to miss.
ConclusionSo that’s a huge free party open to the public on November 4th to celebrate Blizzard’s 25th anniversary and Diablo’s 20th. There’ll be a live band, a DJ, themed drinks, food, and special surprises. Sounds like a good time to me. What do you think? Is it okay to be a DJ if you can only say Hodor?
