Politicon, the “Unconventional Political Convention,” today announced its 2018 dates and location, returning to the Los Angeles Convention Center on Oct. 20-21, 2018. This will be its fourth annual gathering, bringing together some of the biggest names in politics and entertainment for an unconventional and highly entertaining weekend of political discourse, just two weeks before the Midterm Elections. Politicon also announced Politicon Live!, its first traveling road tour with stops in Dallas, Denver, and Phoenix on Nov. 16, 17, and 18, respectively. The tour will feature former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, The Young Turks’ Hasan Piker, and host, actor, comedian and writer Grace Parra.

Politicon 2017 came to a close with a record-breaking attendance of more than 10,000 over the weekend event, bringing together Republicans, Democrats and others of all political stripes for a weekend of intelligent, controversial, entertaining and humorous discussions, providing a unique platform for opposing ideologies to meet in the middle… or somewhere thereabouts! 2017 headliners of the non-partisan event included Chelsea Handler, America Ferrera, Jake Tapper, Joy Reid, Tomi Lahren, Cenk Uygur, Ben Shapiro, Pod Save America, James Carville, Roger Stone and Ann Coulter. This year’s participants will be announced later this summer.

Pre-sale tickets will go on sale to Politicon mailing list subscribers Aug. 21, while general tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Sept. 5 at www.politicon.com/tickets.
