There is always one event during San Diego Comic Con that you tell everyone about. One event you ‘rave’ about dare I say. That event is Rave of Thrones at the Omnia! It’s Kristian Nairn‘s DJ set with a Game of Thrones theme. For those who aren’t clued into Westeros, Nairn plays Hodor in the hit series. In complete honestly, the Game of Thrones spin was the reason I attended last year. However, it was not the reason I still tell every soul who mentions San Diego Comic Con about it.
Rave of Thrones
Nairn does not need to rely on Game of Thrones. Does it get people in the door? Sure! It’s the experience that makes you stay. Nairn DJs like no one I’ve seen before. He’s someone who actually pays attention to the crowd. Some DJs just spit out whatever popular songs that are on the Top 40 that week. Nairn takes you on a roller coaster riding beats mixed with exciting visuals. The video played behind him isn’t actual Game of Thrones footage, but it is reminicent of it. The whole vibe of the room felt excited and pumped. Unfortunely and in ultimate nerd style, Nairn ends the set with “Hodor” and leaves. My little nerd heart couldn’t handle it. I wanted an encore! And I’m going to get it! Just a year later, at this year’s show at the Omnia!
Hold the Door for Kristian Nairn
Nairn is internationally known in the fields of Music and Performance. Nairn worked with acts such as Scissor Sisters, Mylo, Calvin Harris and Alphabeat; as well as being part of bands such as AJ Suzuki and Dublin’s very own Daddy’s Little Princess. A DJ and electronic music producer, he has had a residency for eleven years in Kremlin, one of Ireland’s most popular and enduring venues. As a performance artist, Nairn uses his musicality to fuse together immense performances, often mixing and even playing the music himself.
He’s a loyal sci-fi and fantasy fan, which makes SDCC a perfect venue for him. Aside from GoT, he can be found on the small screen via Blizzard’s award winning game, World of Warcraft.
