Due to an electrical fault, the Hove Centre will now be unavailable to host Summer of Sonic this year. The event will now take place at the Brighton Centre, not too far away. Everyone involved with Summer of Sonic apologizes for this last minute change, but everyone’s safety must come first. All ticket holders will still be able to get into SoS and all scheduled attractions will still take place minus the art classes, which have been cancelled due to venue constraints.
For more information, head over to the Summer of Sonic website.
Keep an eye on the SoS website and both the SoS Twitter feed and Facebook page for updates.

The intentional venue for the Summer of Sonic 2011 convention has been revealed – and it’s right on your doorstep! The Camden Centre is situated right opposite Kings Cross St. Pancras Station in Central London, and is just a short walk from Euston station too, making it the most accessible SoS location to date!
According to the announcement on the Summer of Sonic website, the Camden Centre can house 900 raving Sonic fans (without any additional equipment clogging up the space), but any concerns of a cramped experience against all those tables will be relieved to hear that there’s a sizeable foyer and secondary hall that will also be used to hold stalls and other things.
“In terms of what it could offer us as a space, and after visiting the very friendly management there, the SoS team feels that Camden Centre is the perfect place to hold Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20th Anniversary,” reads the post by… well, me. More updates – including a closer peek at the venue – are to come at a more regular pace now that the intentional location has been decided. Stay tuned to TSS for the latest.
