Minecrafters, get ready to build your best Big Ben, because you’re headed to London. Mojang announced earlier this week that its Minecraft convention, MINECON will be held July 4-5 at the London Exhibition and Conference Centre in London, England.
After taking a year off in 2014, MINECON is back, and it sounds like it will be bigger than ever. With 10,000 tickets up for grabs, the convention will feature panels, contests, tournaments and other events including a yet-to-be-announced performance at a July 5 show.
Tickets will go on sale sometime in the month of February and will be released in two batches of 5,000 each. The exact date of ticket sales will be announced within the next two weeks. Upon purchasing tickets, you will also get access to discounted hotel rooms in the London area.
Mojang will begin taking submissions for “MINECON Agent” volunteers next week. Selected agents will be given notice before tickets go on sale.
