David Ellefson (Megadeth), Michael Sweet (Stryper), Brian “Damage” Forsythe (KIX), Jason Bieler (Saigon Kick), Jack Gibson (Exodus) and Eerie Von (Danzig) headline a lineup of rockers appearing at the Nashville RockNPod Expo, taking place Saturday August 10 at the Nashville Airport Marriott in Nashville, TN.
RockNPod is an annual convention for rock/metal fans, podcasters, musicians, vendors, and industry members.
This unique experience gives fans an opportunity to meet their favorite rock stars, attend on-stage panels with the guests, purchase vinyl and memorabilia from vendors, participate in a cosplay contest, win prizes in our RockNPod raffle, tour a RockNPod museum featuring stage played/worn gear and learn about the growing trend of music podcasting.
RockNPod is equally a beneficial trade show for music podcasters. Now in year three, the community that has sprung from RockNPod has resulted in several new podcasts, great new friendships formed, and the launching ground of a ton of content that comes from this expo. Registered podcasters have the opportunity to record on-site at their own table, interview celebrity guests, attend an education track featuring great speakers and workshops that will help build your audience and following. Most importantly, it’s a fantastic networking event and way to promote your show in person.
