5 Seconds of Summer has announced a fan competition called “Derp Con” for fans. Derp Con will be a two-day event, similar to the famous Comic Con that is held at San Diego each year. You can find more info about Derp Con at http://www.5sosderpcon.com/
The band also released a funny video in the style of a comic book to promote the event.
For the last few months, we have been working hard on a secret event. Now we finally get to reveal it to you……. We are very excited to announce the 5SOS Convention: “DERP CON 2014″!!
Derpcon 2014 is us bringing people from all over the world to Los Angeles in the USA to fight ninjas, internet haters and join in some serious banding. We are launching a worldwide competition where entrants (i.e. you!) have the chance to be a part of this between November 15/16. As part of your reward, you will fly over to Los Angeles with a friend (prize incl. flights & accom) to attend Derp Con and come hang out at the Forum for our biggest headline show yet! There we will draw our battle lines and prepare to fight our foes. None shall stand in our way.
You will be able to find all the details on how you can enter here on the Derp Con website now – just click on your country on the world map. Keep checking over the next few weeks, we’ll have plenty more stuff coming soon!
Those enlisted to join our league (along with their faithful sidekicks) will be assigned the task of representing their country and showing the rest of the world how awesome they are! We wish we could bring you ALL along… so if you can’t come, we’ll be posting info on how you can get involved online very soon!
This is going to be EPIC. We cannot even begin to tell you….
5SOS signing off…
- Ash, Cal, Mikey & Luke xx
The band recently performed a live version of “Amnesia” at the MTV Video Music Awards and won the award for Best Lyric Video for their hit single “Don’t Stop”. If you are a fan of 5sos, you can download some ringtones to your phone here. Recently they were spotted at LAX after arriving from London – check out the photos below.
If holding Derp Con weren’t enough, 5sos band member Ashton Irwin has aspired to one day have his own TV show with bandmates Calum Hood, Luke Hemmings and Michael Clifford. He tweeted last night, “So many late night shows, I’d love to have a TV show one day… “I miss acting as well, it was fun! Glad I get to do it a little in the band!”
Also in the news, Calum Hood has also apologized to his fans for the recent accidental photo leak on snapchat.
