Starrcast is back.
Sports Illustrated announced that Starrcast will return from July 29-31 at the Nashville Fairgrounds as part of WWE SummerSlam weekend. This marks the fifth iteration of Starrcast and the first since 2019. Previous Starrcast events have run alongside All In and AEW pay-per-view weekends.
Starrcast is a fan convention run by Conrad Thompson featuring meet and greets, podcast panels, activities, and more. Thompson is partnering with Thuzio, a Triller company, to stream the event. Triller now owns FITE, which has been a day-one partner for Starrcast.
“Pre-pandemic, we had hoped to do another Starrcast in Chicago in 2020, but the stars just didn’t align,” Thompson said. “So it makes sense to bring it back, especially with a stadium show nearby—but this time, with a few twists that I think everybody is going to enjoy. You’re going to hear from some names we haven’t heard from in quite a long while. And there will be some others who we may be hearing from for the last time. We’ll start all of those announcements next week.”
STARRCAST V Heading to Nashville
Pro wrestling’s biggest fan fest set to make its Music City debut
After a three-and-a-half year hiatus, STARRCAST, the wildly popular professional wrestling fan fest, is back and ready to rock the Music City. Often called “The Woodstock of Professional Wrestling,” STARRCAST V, in partnership with Thuzio, a Triller company, will take place at the world famous Nashville Fairgrounds from Friday, July 29th to Sunday, July 31st. The event will also be made available worldwide, exclusively on FITE.
Presale tickets for those who have purchased past STARRCAST wristbands, will go on sale at 12pm EDT on Thursday, May 19th. Public ticket sales will begin at 12/pm EDT on Friday, May 20th at www.STARRCAST.com. Preordering the event on FITE will also go live at 12pm EDT on Friday, May 20th.
“The number one question I’ve gotten over the past three years, at live shows, on social media, or in interviews is, ‘When is the next STARRCAST,’ said STARRCAST founder and creator Conrad Thompson. “I’m so happy I can finally answer; July 29th through the 31st at the beautiful Nashville Fairgrounds. As our Top Guys at AdFreeShows.com know, when my team and I get together on these events, our goal is to over-deliver for the fans, and the line-up and events we have scheduled for STARRCAST V will make it a can’t miss event for any wrestling fan.”
“Having already worked with Conrad Thompson and his team on the previous four, very-successful STARRCAST events, FITE is excited to present STARRCAST V. The excitement that a STARRCAST event brings to those in attendance, and extending to those watching at home, is second-to-none," said FITE COO Michael Weber. "I have fans to this day talk to me about re-watching the stage shows and events from the past STARRCAST events on FITE. We can't wait to be in Nashville to present what's going to be another historic event for professional wrestling fans."
STARRCAST V will give professional wrestling fans an immersive experience of stage shows, photo opportunities, meet and greets, autograph signings and more. For the latest updates on stage shows, talent scheduled to appear and other STARRCAST V announcements, follow @StarrcastEvents on Twitter.
