According to The Courier Journal, KISS' Gene Simmons will join some of the biggest names in science fiction, horror and comics in Louisville for FandomFest, which runs Friday through Sunday at the Galt House and Kentucky International Convention Center.
Other stars include William Shatner, Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame, actor and director Kevin Smith and Spider-Man creator Stan Lee are among the stars who will appear at the festival, billed as the largest convention of its kind in the Midwest.
The convention covers entertainment genres such as horror and anime films, steampunk literature and video games. According to the founder of FandomFest, Ken Daniels, the convention should appeal to fans of all kinds.“We all want to escape sometimes,” Daniels said. “This is the greatest form of escapism ever.”
What began with 600 attendees eight years ago grew to nearly 17,000 last year — although organizers had only expected 4,800. Daniels expects more than 25,000 to attend this year.
