We are pleased to announce the first (and hopefully only) Marillion Couch Convention 2020.
While the world is slowly opening back up and live concerts seem a long way off, we thought we’d cheer everyone, including ourselves up with a Marillion weekend in your very own home!
On the weekend 4th/5th/6th September 2020, we are inviting you to join us at our online Weekend with all the fun and games of our usual Marillion Weekends, but all virtual and for FREE.
On each of the evenings, we will be streaming a full concert film on our YouTube channel, and we are hoping fans around the world will gather and watch together.
The band will be watching along with you while we watch “as one”.
We will also be replicating other Marillion Weekend experiences during the day on Saturday and Sunday: hosting quizzes, Instagram chats, Twitter Q & As, “aftershow” parties and lots of other fun stuff.
A full schedule will be posted at www.couchconvention.com (linked at the close), which we will be updating between now and the event.
There will be a lot of opportunities for you to interact with the band and chances to win some great prizes.
Our worldwide fanclubs will also be getting involved and some will be running their own online events – these will be added to the schedule as it evolves.
If in your country lockdown regulations have eased, and it safe to do so, you could consider meeting up with friends to share the occasion.
We also appreciate that everyone is on different time zones, and our evening shows may well be morning or afternoon for some of you, but we hope there will be chances for everyone to have some fun over the course of the weekend.
We have created a range of “at home” merchandise which we will be putting up for pre-order in the next couple of weeks. This includes a t-shirt, event laminate, confetti, beer and wine glasses and even a Marillion BBQ apron!
And no queuing!
This is your early “save the date” warning.
We’ll give you more details as we go. Hope to “see” you there.
h, Ian, Mark, Pete and Steve

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I don’t know my work schedule for that point in time just yet, I will say that this sure does sound cool. The Marillion Weekends appear to be stuff of legend if you are a fan of the group. I’ve followed them for a few decades myself and while they have changed quite a bit over the years, I must admit that they always bring their A game to the live concert stage. This event should be a lot of fun for their fans since they are so devoted to them. When you add to the mix that this will be a free experience then its all the more awesome. What do you think about this announcement? Will you be participating and sharing your love of all things Marillion with your like-minded peeps? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around.
