Located on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, Sonic-Con is a unique, family-friendly experience designed for those who love all things audio.

The weekend will feature industry professionals, interactive masterclasses, writing competitions, live radio dramas, and a platform for new works.

Unlike other conventions Sonic-Con is not simply a meet-and-greet experience; it is a place to listen, engage, AND CREATE!
