Gay ‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Kristian Nairn (Hodor) Announces ‘Rave of Thrones’ DJ Tour

Kristian-nairnIn the Rave of Thrones, you either dance, or you die.

Recently out Game of Thrones actor Kristian Nairn is inviting us all to a DJ tour throughout a number of Australian nightclubs promising "the deepest house [music] from all seven kingdoms."

Nairn, who plays the linguistically-limited Hodor on the HBO series, is a veteran DJ of the Belfast house scene known for his throbbing EDM beats.

The Rave, naturally, will be heavily Game of Thrones themed, with ravers strongly encouraged to dress in their finest Westerosi garb.

Nairn’s rave marks the latest in a number of high profile musical collaborations driven by Game of Thrones’s popularity. Following a cameo by Sigur Rós in the series’ fourth season, HBO commissioned a full album’s worth of Game of Thrones themed songs from the likes of Outkast’s Big Boi, Common, and Wale. Tickets for the Rave are on sale now, with tour dates starting at the end of August.

    I wrote to Kristian on his Facebook account after reading the news when he came out. I was floored that he actually wrote back, and continued to do so for a day or two! He is a very sweet guy – and a very talented musician. I followed links from his Facebook profile to his Soundcloud account, where he has uploaded many of his House tracks, mixes, and sets. He also mentioned that he plays guitar, hinting that he loved to cover Queen and Iron Maiden; he must be very good. I’m still waiting for him to share some of his guitar music!
