World's Largest AC/DC Convention To Be Held In Early August

Caroline Jones of icNorthWales is reporting that hundreds of rock fans are expected to descend on a Welsh town for a weekend of quality music when Wrehxam plays host to the world's largest AC/DC convention.

Fans of the Australian rock group will be entertained with a weekend of partying featuring 10 tribute bands from all over the world on August 6-8.

The headline act will be Welshman Dave Evans, the original singer with the band and founding member.

Event organizer Andy Whitfield said: "There has never been a convention for AC/DC fans on a scale as large as this before.

"The main event will take place in a specially dressed venue on the campus, where the bands will perform on a replica of AC/DC's touring stage circa 1980, designed especially for the occasion.

"There will be two bands from America, HAYSEED DIXIE, a hillbilly tribute from Nashville, and AC/DSHE, a female tribute from San Francisco."

In addition to the music, there will be a large record/merchandise fair, an AC/DC photo exhibition, talks and seminars by specially invited music industry guests.

Three of the rock world's most respected photographers and graphic artists will host an exhibition of exclusive AC/DC photography and album artwork.

Fin Costello, Dick Barnatt and Steve Joule will be exhibiting rare examples of work from the early years of the band's history — from the mid 1970s, right up to the late 1980s. Read more.
