Haim Goldenberg

Kainoa Harbottle

Kainoa Harbottle re-defined coin magic. Known for his ground breaking sleight of hand (including work on the edge palm) . You'll learn something amazing if you're a beginner, intermediate or expert coin magician.

Curtis Kam

We can't talk about coin magic without talking about coin magic legend Curtis Kam. Not only has he created tricks that have become modern classics, he's also invented techniques that have become fundamentals. It's a living legend!

Magician and hilarious entertainer Ben Seidman is one of magics best kept secrets with countless sold out shows and college tours. Now, He's partnering with Atlas Obscura and mills entertainment to produce Camera Tricks

Adrian Lacroix

Tim Hannig

Tim Hannig is one of the busiest children's performers in the world. When he isn't touring schools all over the US and writing books, Tim lectures to magicians helping them improve as performers. No matter who you perform for, Tim can help.

Danny Orleans

Caleb Wiles

You thought this SUPER-NERD was going to miss out on an 8-bit magic convention? Not a chance! He's been on Penn and Tellers Fool us twice, and has created our (and probably your) favourite card tricks. Rumor has it he's got more to share.

Chris Mayhew

Chris Mayhew is one of the most creative, and funniest people on the planet. When he isn't on stage making people laugh or wandering the woods in deep thought, Chris is probably at a convention holding court with his awesome magic.

Elias Arbuckle

Can you say youth sensation? Elias Arbuckle has been sweeping the nation convention after convention. Showing the world the teens can kick ass doing magic too. We weren't going to miss the chance to have him at our convention.

🎟 What's Included With My Ticket? 🎟

This is more than just a glorified livestream. This is a custom built virtual venue with YOU in mind. We built this convention to not only emulate all of your favourite parts of a real magic convention, but also to take advantage of the virtual ones that have never been done before.

Full Day Convention

Step 1

13 hours of lectures, shows, panels, and lobby jams with some of the best magicians in the world. Just like a real magic convention but from the comfort of your own home.

Custom Built Space

Step 1

We've designed the perfect magic convention pixel-by-pixel including a lecture hall, jam space, bars, dealers rooms and so much more. We're making all of your wildest magic convention dreams come true.

Jamming and More Jamming

Step 3

This isn't just an 8-bit world: As you move closer to other attendees your camera fades into view. That means you can talk face-to-face with everyone at the convention (including our surprise magicians)!

Physical Package

Step 3

After the virtual convention, every attendee is mailed a package with a one of a kind book filled with tricks and essays from some of the incredible magicians on the lineup. Plus... some secret swag we don't want to tell you about just yet.

World Class Talent

Step 2

Usually it's challenging to get the best magicians in the world all in one room. With UnConventional.Fun we laugh at the idea of borders around the globe.

Tricks Up Our Sleeves

Step 3

We've got so many surprises and announcements that we can't wait to tell you about. Talent we haven't announced, surprise events, swag, and all sorts of mind-blowing fun!

You Have Questions?
We have answers!

How does it work?

Once you get your ticket, you'll get information about how it works sent right to your inbox.

That includes line up announcements, set-by-step tutorials and more.

Plus, before the start of the convention you're going to get a tutorial video teaching you how to use the platform.

All you have to worry about is getting excited.

Leave the complicated stuff to us.

How do I jam in an 8-bit world?

Great Question!

Even though the virtual world is 8-bit, the cameras are real!

Convention attendees fade into view as you get close to each other. 

When you enter the lecture hall, all you can see is the lecturers camera, but when you're jamming, you can see the webcams of everybody near you.

It's awesome!

What if I'm not available for the whole day

Just like a real convention where you can escape to your hotel room, there will be places an UnConventional.Fun for you to log out and get some rest.

No matter if you're arriving early, leaving late, or just need to stretch... we've got you covered.

Can I use my phone/tablet?

You're going to need a Laptop or Desktop Computer. The UnConventional.Fun Software does not work on mobile. 

Will the event be recorded?

Nope!

Just like a real convention this is going to be a live experience with dozens of lectures hundreds of jams, and thousands of conversations all over the virtual convention. It's impossible to record it all.

I'm bad with tech. Is this going to be hard?

Actually, it's incredibly simple.  Log on, pick your character, and you're ready to go. 

Plus, we're going to send out an easy step-by-step tutorial before the convention so you can learn exactly how it all works by the time you start.

Oh... and during the convention we'll have people available for tech support if you need any help or have any questions.

We thought of everything.

Don't wait...

Snag Your Ticket Before They're All Gone!

We expect this event to sell out quickly! 

If you've never seen anything like this...that's because there's never been anything like this!

So whether this is your first magic convention on your thousandth... Be prepared for UNCONVENTIONAL FUN.

There are only 83 300 tickets left

Prices vary based on shipping.
