Minecon 2015 ticket details announced by Mojang for July event
"Minecraft" fans recently received amazing news from Mojang. The game developer announced that the fan convention called Minecon will return this year after not existing since 2014. The annual event that was normally attended by over 10,000 avid "Minecraft" fans since it began in Las Vegas in 2010 will once again attract thousands of fans around the world. This time, it will be held at the ExCeL Convention Centre in London on July 4 and 5.
There is limited information shared about what the convention will offer this year, but Mojang recently announced that those who will attend the event will be able to participate in several panels that will discuss the future of the sandbox game. Also, several exhibits can be expected where innovative stuff will be displayed featuring the "Minecraft" principle.
However, the most concrete announcement from Mojang about the event is the schedule of the ticket release as well as information on where and how to purchase it. According to Mojang's official website, the first 5,000 tickets will be sold on Friday, March 27, at exactly 6 p.m. GMT. The next set of 5,000 tickets will go on sale starting 12 p.m. on Saturday, March 28.
Each ticket will be sold for £129, and can only be purchased through Eventbrite. Each individual can only purchase up to six tickets at a time, and they have to provide the name of the ticket holder when making the purchase to make the order complete. The tickets cannot be resold, and only those individuals whose name appears on the ticket will be admitted to the convention.
Mojang also tied up with several hotels within the vicinity of the venue where attendees can book at discounted rates. They also allow children aged three and below to enter the premises for free, but those aged 14 or younger must purchase their tickets and have an accompanying adult before being allowed to attend the event.
