Today, 5 Seconds Of Summer surprised their fandom with news of a convention later this year. Despite the fact that 5SOS only gave their followers about 12 hours of warning for Derp Con, the announcement still managed to trend worldwide. Think about it -- they can literally just do that.
The Derp Con site opens with a scrolling "Star Was"-inspired intro about superheroes, saving the universe, and "like also some ninjas with like bombs that one time." Translation: Fans of the pop-punk Aussies can enter for a chance to win a flight out to the convention, held at The Forum in Inglewood, California -- a.k.a. where the guys performed "Amnesia" at the 2014 VMAs.
There, they'll get to hang out with each other, hit up 5SOS' biggest headlining show yet, and participate in a whole lot of general "banding." Ummmm, maybe this video can explain it better than me.
How excited are you, 5SOS Fam?
Ready your nerves with their VMA performance.
