MINECON heads to London in July

Hey! You there! Minecraft fan! What are you doing the first weekend of July? …if your answer is anything other than “going to MINECON”, you should probably re-think your priorities.

MINECON in London!

MINECON in London!

Simple facts:
WHEN: July 4-5, 2015
WHERE: ExCeL London Exhibition and Conference Centre
WHO: You, hopefully!

The official invitation comes from Mojang‘s Vu Bui:

If you like Minecraft, and you like people who like Minecraft, you’ll probably like MINECON. It’s THE place to see all the cool Mojangstas you fancy, meet people who love Minecraft maybe even as much as you do, and attend panels and events full of YouTube creators and a ton of other talented folks!

Bui promises “panels, contests, tournaments, events and a soon-to-be-announced show-of-some-sort for our Saturday night bash” (all somehow related to Minecraft, of course!). If you’re at all interested, maybe start looking up just how to get to London for July 4!

Tickets will go on sale some time this month from minecon.mojang.com – time and date will be announced “in the next two weeks”. To cope with different schedules, there will be two batches released on the same day, at different times.

Discounted hotel pricing will be offered when you buy your ticket, so you don’t need to rush out and get a room just yet!

So you want to be a part of the event? We will be taking volunteer submissions next week. You’ll fill out an online form and we will get back to you before tickets go on sale. Watch mojang.com for more details.

Panel submissions start in early March, when Mojang will release an online form that you need to fill out. You’ll need to explain the panel, mention who would be the best guests for it, and submit a video of yourself describing what you have in mind – and why it should be at MINECON.

More Minecraft-y information will trickle out over the next few weeks, Bui says – so keep an eye on mojang.com for updates!
