So, for the last few days we've been a bit preoccupied with other matters, and the convention news submit box has gotten a little full. There's a SHITLOAD of these things now. We decided to put all of them into a big post for your convenience.
Spain has a convention now!
Also news from Bronycon, BronyCAN, and Ponyville Ciderfest.
It is our great pleasure to announce the date of celebration of Summer Wrap Up Festival 2015, the first Spanish and Portuguese brony convention. It will be on 12th - 13th September, in the city of Madrid, that we'll wrap up the Summer with the beginning of what we hope will be a series of iberian conventions. The event will take place in Hotel Eco Vía Lusitana of Madrid. You'll find all the relevant information in our webpage.
Shortly, we'll also begin an Indiegogo campaign and we'll announce our guests, activities and the tickets.
We'll make this Summer’s farewell an epic one!

The convention features special guests, diverse programming and a multi-night music festival. For more information, check out bronycon.org.
Are lines that are given short and rhymed, important to ponies when they are well-timed? Ee-yup! BronyCAN is proud to bring you two actors who give life to a pair of curiously-spoken, but sage ponies on the show, Peter New and Brenda Crichlow! Peter voices none other than the laconic Big Macintosh in addition to numerous background voices, while Brenda provides the rhymes for Ponyville’s resident wise-zebra, Zecora! Both will be available through the weekend of -23 at BronyCAN 2015!
About Peter New

He has over 80 professional credits including: Motive, Delete, Fringe, Mr Young, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon, Psych, Men In Trees and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. He has voiced many cartoon characters, from ‘Evan’ in Barbie Thumbelina, to ‘Ian Vashti’ in Gundam00, ‘Lunk’ in Powerpuff Girls Z, but is most well known as 'Sunil' in Littlest Pet Shop, and ‘Big Macintosh’ in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Peter began acting with a sketch comedy troupe called The Legend of Bonefish, who disbanded twenty years ago, although some of those old sketches have sprung up on YouTube, starring middle-aged versions of themselves. Weird. He has broad interests, from astronomy to photography, architecture to environment. He plays a little piano, a bit of guitar, some ukulele, and a passel of drums. One day he wants to cut a record. He enjoys cooking, but more than that, eating. Yummy.
