Frequently Asked Questions

Sonic EXPO is an event for everyone!

If you like games, and have ever liked Sonic in the slightest, we assure you there is something at Sonic EXPO that you may find enjoyable!

We welcome everyone, of all ages and all walks of life! 

You can enjoy this event as a non Sonic Fan, and we guarantee you’ll enjoy it as a Sonic Fan!

Sonic EXPO 2024 is currently a 2 day event. Sonic EXPO 2024 is from November 9th-November 10th.

The Concert will take place on the 9th, Saturday Night.

All Sonic EXPO Badges do NOT include admission into the concert. Concert tickets are a purchase that must be bought in addition to the badge in order to attend.

Sonic EXPO 2024 is a action packed event with tons of value that comes with the regular badge including access to the following:

  • Speedrunning Events
  • Cosplay Contest
  • Guest Hall
  • Artist Alley | Exhibitor Hall
  • Panel Rooms
  • Gaming Hall
  • Break out spaces including Karaoke

Unfortunately the cost of running a large scale production for a concert is out of the scope of a regular convention price. In order for us to bring such an amazing experience to you, we need to charge a small amount to ensure we can create an unforgettable memory. In addition to this, we have to know exactly how many people we are expecting at the concert to ensure it is a safe and enjoyable concert experience. 

If you purchase a regular or VIP badge, you must purchase a Regular or VIP Concert Concert ticket in order to attend. 

On our Ticketing Website, tickets will explicitly state which tickets include admission to the concert, and which require the additional purchase.

We have implemented a new system to Sonic EXPO called the DASH PASS.

The DASH PASS emblem will be scattered across the event indicating all lines that you can skip. If there is a DASH PASS sign at a line and you have a DASH PASS, You can skip that line. If multiple people are using a DASH PASS at the same time, a DASH PASS line will form, but it will be likely much faster than the regular line.

DASH PASS is included with the following badges:

  • Kickstarter VIP Badge
  • VIP Badge

Individual Dash Passes may be sold separately in the future.

Sonic EXPO will span across both the Esports Stadium as well as the Sheraton Arlington.

Events will take place in both buildings.

The Sheraton Arlington and Esports Stadium have a covered breezeway, and only require a brief 60 second walk to travel between the two venues. 

We understand the need to leave event premises sometimes, so re-entry into Sonic Expo 2024 and the TJ Davis concert are permitted.

Please be aware that badge checks may be conducted by security if deemed necessary. We want everyone to have a great time and thank you for your cooperation.
