FACTS holds the door for Kristian Nairn, aka HODOR in Game of Thrones!

FACTS wants to keep the magic going on Saturday night, on April 1st. And to do that, the organisers offer the FACTS fans longer opening hours on Saturday (until 9 pm) AND they throw in an after-party, called The Sequel, Your Geeky After-party. With these extras, FACTS Spring Edition 2017 will be the longest edition in FACTS history.

FACTS is proud to announce that the headliner for the party will be none other than actor Kristian Nairn, aka Hodor in Game of Thrones. He will give the fans a one-and-a-half-hour Rave of Thrones, The Rebirth DJ Set, preceded by various wondrous acts. Mr. Nairn will also be present at FACTS as a guest actor for the whole weekend, alongside Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1), Spencer Wilding (Darth Vader in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and more names that are yet to be announced.

FACTS will transform Flanders Expo Ghent into the geekiest party palace Europe has ever seen on Saturday, the 1st of April. The madness starts at 9 pm, reality returns at midnight.

With this initiative, FACTS further increases the already strong community feeling and gives the FACTS fans a chance to geek until they’re weak. And FACTS will gladly ‘hold the door’ once more on Sunday morning, to rekindle the magic all over again.

FACTS, Your Belgian Comic Con, is not just a convention, it’s another dimension. FACTS is the biggest pop culture event of the Benelux that brings together the best of movies, series, games and superheroes, allows all its aspects to spring to life and unites a wide array of pop culture fans.

Twice a year, the FACTS Flagship docks at the halls of Flanders Expo in Ghent to present its riches in the form of world-famous actors, international comic artists, thousands of fans dressed up as fictional characters, 54.000 m² of surprising activities, and 250+ exhibitors with geeky merchandise and collector’s items. 

FACTS has been around since 1993 and has 30 years of know-how in the comic con world. On top of that, this event is backed by ‘Heroes’, a European network of 9 pop culture events spread across Belgium, The Netherlands, and Sweden. The Belgian eventMade in Asia, for example, is one of those sibling events.

The 2023 editions will be held on 6-7 April and 2-3 November, in Flanders Expo Ghent. If you’re even remotely a fan of fantasy, science fiction, comics, anime, cosplay, video games, board games, films and TV series, then FACTS is a phenomenon that should be on your bucket list.
