Kristian Nairn Kicks Ass in This Middlelands Clip

Our new, medieval-themed Middlelands festival may or may not have been inspired by binge-watching entire seasons of the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. Still, the festival’s Renaissance concept certainly begs for an appropriate character to properly kick things off.

With this in mind, we give you this fantastical video clip starring Kristian Nairn—actor, producer, and the man known to millions of fans around the world as “Hodor.” Here’s something you might not know: Nairn is also a well-respected DJ in his own right and has toured the world with his sensational Rave of Thrones show, which hit Exchange LA in 2014.

As Hodor himself says, “It’s about to get medieval up in this bitch!”

Peep the full clip above, and remember: Tickets for the first-ever Middlelands go on sale Tuesday, December 6, at 10am PT/noon CT.
