Devacon was a small fan run slash convention that took place in the early 1990s in the UK.

It averaged around 35 to 50 attendees.

The convention also put out a con zine, Friends Will Be Friends (ex. Issue #4 was released in connection with Devacon 4 in 1995).

The last Devacon may have been held in 1996.

Among the many amusements at the convention, fans would gather at a local Pizza Hut and scribble round robins on paper napkins.

One fan remembers the 1995 con:
I rediscovered Starsky and Hutch only last March at my first multi-media"/" convention. (Devacons 3 and 4 in Chester were very enjoyable weekends). On the journey to the con I found myself hoping I would find S/H zines, although I don't know why; K/S was my reason for attending, and I hadn't thought about David or Paul since my schooldays. Fortunately, the zine trilogy "One More Mountain", "One More River" and "No Easy Answers" was on sale in the dealer's room. Although I had never seen "Sweet Revenge" and thought the shooting was "fan-fictional", I thought the story was wonderful and couldn't put down the zines until I had devoured every word. [1]
