Hodor! Kristian Nairn is Coming to Manila and is Dropping the Beat!


As part of the Pop Life Fan Experience from the upcoming TOYCON PH: The Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention, Game of Thrones’ very own Kristian Nairn, better known as “Hodor” is coming to Manila and more than just getting to see him during Toycon he will be playing a live DJ set at The Palace Pool Club on June 11, 2016!

A gentle giant at 6’11 he has been a DJ for twenty years, he also plays the guitar and sings. A progressive house DJ he was the resident DJ Kremlin, a club in Belfast. With the worldwide success of Game of Thrones Nairn has been fortunate enough to bring his musical side around the world, putting his alter ego aside, Nairn shines as an experienced DJ. He went on a tour in the US called “Rave of Thrones” between October to December in 2014.

His music has been described as a “throwback to the golden days of British house music which extend running times, seamless hour-loving mixes, and focus on keeping the energy level high but not exhausting”. 

In case you guys are wondering what “Rave of Thrones” is like, it’s what every Thronie (Game of Thrones fan) dreams of – a rave party with Hodor in charge of the music and there are costumes! Yes – Daenerys wigs, swords, dragon tails- you name it and it’s there!

Maybe we can bring something like that for his Manila set?

He’s also on Spotify if you want to check out his music!
