A Convention is an event, where people with similar interests gather, exchange about their hobby, experience and discover new things, dive into the scene and bind themselves further to it.

Tickets are available as of now online and in our shops in Vienna, Linz, Graz and Seiersberg! In pre-sale, the tickets for all three days including movie premieres and afterparty cost 10€. Kids under 16 years of age get free entrance.

From the 5th till the 7th of October 2018, Blue Tomato welcomes in winter at the Ottakringer Brewery in Vienna! Together with you, we want to raise the anticipation and welcome the new season. To ensure an appropriate event, we set up an extensive program and brought a lot of brands on board, to entertain you throughout the three days and build up the anticipation for the first snow. The Ottakringer Brewery has more than enough space for the programme, from the Jib City Contest presented by Vans to workshops and talks to brand booths, where you can already buy the brand new gear of the new season!

Same as Friday, we'll take over the Nox Bar, and we invited some awesome DJs for the occasion: Lucas Prodinger aka L.P. will start the evening, Kidd Salute is going to continue after that and none other than Pitchy & Scratchy are going to wrap it up until the early morning!
