MINECON tickets are here!

In an effort to be fair to people who have jobs or school and those with different schedules, Mojang is releasing tickets in 3 batches to cover different days and times. Each batch is for 2500 tickets, and you can purchase up to 6 tickets in one order, to cover families or groups of friends traveling together.

THE RELEASE SCHEDULE IS:
  • Ticket Batch 1 – Wednesday July 31 @ 4pm PDT / 7pm EDT
  • Ticket Batch 2 – Friday August 2nd @ 7am PDT / 10am EDT
  • Ticket Batch 3 – Saturday August 3rd @ 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT

When you book your tickets you can also book hotels at our special MINECON rates. We have a variety of hotels available with different prices and different distances from the Convention Center.

Visit minecon.mojang.com to book! Tickets are $150 each, 3yo and under get in for free and don’t need a ticket!
MINECON will be held at the Orange County Convention Center and will be on November 2-3, times to be announced later (probably from around 10am to around 5pm each day).

More details will follow about activities at MINECON, but there will of course be panels from Mojang and many community members, an awesome tradeshow where you can check out cool products and services revolving around Minecraft, and of course lots of Minecraft merchandise for sale.

Volunteer and panelist submissions will be taken soon, details to come in the coming weeks.

Companies wishing to exhibit: email Mojang for exhibitor information.

Wow, 150$/ticket but it's worth it.
Were talking about a Minecraft event over there.

:-P

I'm just imagining 34 year old guys dressed like babyes to enter for free.

Be nice with me and I will be nice with you :)

Awesome. I might be going. Just have to purchase the tickets on either the 3rd or 1st day. Those will be the best since the 3rd starts at 12:00 AM in the morning when all the little kids are asleep and on the 1st, I won't have to stress over it on the 3rd day. Also, doesn't the MCF team get in for free like in 2012 or was that only last year?

I'm looking forward to MineCon. It seems pretty fun.

It's really not the little kids that you have to worry about....they don't have $150 in any case.  It's the losers buying all the batches they can to resell them at a premium on Stub Hub that you need to watch for.

Thankfully the batch limit of 6 tickets should slow them down, but I highly recommend making your purchase as soon as they're made available.

When you buy the ticket you insert your email. Depending on when they distribute the capes, last year was the around the day of for example, you should receive a link via the email you provided. That link will give you access to the cape.

Airfare, ticket, hotel, food, you are correct, but I think the price is based on supply and demand as they will have no problem selling them.

Wait. $150?

Crap, I thought it would be $99. Looks like I might not be going... If I do, then I'll be by myself..

You shouldn't listen to anything above this line. It is lies and hearsay, I tell you.
