Some 2023 Northwest Arkansas Comic Con Guests

Here are a few tips to help you prepare for NWA Comic Con:

Purchase your tickets in advance: Many conventions sell out, so it’s best to buy your tickets early to ensure that you get in. Plus, buying early often saves you money compared to buying at the door.

Plan your schedule: Look at the list of guests, panels, and events on the convention’s website, and decide what you want to see and do. Many conventions offer a schedule of events in advance, so you can plan your day accordingly.

Dress up: Many conventions have a “cosplay” element, where attendees dress up as their favorite characters. You don’t have to dress up, but it can be a fun way to participate in the event.

Bring cash: Many vendors will only accept cash, so it’s a good idea to bring some with you. Plus, some vendors may not have card readers or Wi-Fi, so cash is the only option.

Be prepared to wait in lines: Popular events and guests will have long lines, so be prepared to wait. Some conventions also have lines for autographs and photo opportunities, so it’s best to plan your time accordingly.

Be respectful: Remember that cosplayers are people like you, so be respectful and don’t touch or mess with their costumes. Conventions are a community event, so be considerate of other attendees and follow all of the rules.

Have fun: conventions are a great way to connect with other fans and celebrate your favorite comics, movies, and TV shows, so relax and enjoy yourself.

Format Festival – Bentonville Arkansas: Full Review

Format Festival Overview

The first annual Format Festival is now in the books and has set the bar for its future events. I was one of the lucky few to attend and was very impressed with the work that went into this production. Overall, the event was excellent and I personally will be giving much more attention on the press side for next year. Let’s walk through the main details you need to know about Format Festival 2022. I will also touch on some of the pros and cons gathered from a few attendees I ran into.

Format Festival Video

What is Format Festival

Format Festival is a three day music festival located in Bentonville Arkansas, that was held September 23-25, 2022. The event theme combined music, art, and technology with a musical lineup featuring acts like Phoenix, Khruangbin, The War On Drugs, Rüfüs Du Sol and 70+ other performers. The venue hosted two main stages for headliners and several themed areas like “The Smokey’s” (an adult-themed playground), “Nova Heat” (an outdoor nightclub), a barn transformed into a disco, and a three-story venue called “The Cube”. You could find vending and merch stations scattered about the property, large art installations, laser lights, a VIP area for the cool kids, and they even offered hot air balloon rides.

Format Festival 2022 – Bentonville Arkansas

Pros – What Format Festival did right

Entertainment was present! Eye candy in every direction like fog machines, laser lit skies, massive art pieces, visual effects, and even a drone light show. There were plenty of location offering a blend of EDM, jazz, indie rock, and alternative hip-hop at any given point.

Cons – Could improve?

Based on my conversations with about 30+ attendees.
Would like to see local entertainers / food trucks involved. The shuttle rides were nice but some mentioned a desire for onsite parking pass options.

Format Festival Sort Review

As a local event promoter who attends festivals like this several times a year, I can tell you from experience this one was…. Expensive! Its nice to see someone willing to invest in such a great event for Northwest Arkansas. Our area needs to host more large festivals like this, so for me, this event is very welcome. Good people, great music, and an overall positive vibe. l personally would like to see more local musicians, artists, and food venders at the next one just to give some love to the area. Overall I think Format did a great job on this event and I’m looking forward to attending the next one.

Sorry for the quality. I left my camera in the truck because I wasn’t sure if I could bring it in.
