635 0

The third David Bowie World Fan Convention has been confirmed for 2024, returning to Liverpool between Friday 26th – Sunday 28th July.

The theme will be The Year Of The Diamond Dogs, featuring talks, VIP meet-and-greets, film screenings, exhibitions and performances, including the popular Bowie Ball and a Bowie Swap Shop.

This year, the event headed off to New York City, and as the convention returns across the pond next year, it will be followed by two members of Bowie’s DAM Trio backing band, bassist George Murray and guitarist, and long-standing friend and artistic collaborator, Carlos Alomar.

Also featuring at the 2024 edition will be the last surviving Spiders From Mars member, Woody Woodmansey, along with backing singer and close friend, Ava CherrySuzi Ronson (Bowie’s Ziggy-era hairdresser and stylist), and Dana Gillespie (backing singer and collaborator).

Dave Pichilingi, Co-Founder of the David Bowie World Fan Convention, commented: “I really cannot believe how far and fast BowieCon has come since a crazy idea I had for it during lockdown in 2020.

“The philosophy from the start was to work with the key collaborators and artists who were close to Bowie throughout his career and life, to bring them together in a non-elitist, non-judgemental and safe environment to celebrate the life and times of the man we continue to adore. 

Over the last two years we’ve spent time with key names from Bowie’s working and personal life and have been privileged to hear their memories and insights. With plenty of thrills to go alongside the moments of awesome poignancy, there’s no place like it for fans who have visited from around the world.”

Next year will be the biggest David Bowie World Fan Convention to date. Tickets went on sale last week, and you can get yours at www.bowieconvention.com, where you can also find all the details announced so far for next year’s event.
