Mojang revives old MineCon live event format for this year’s Minecraft Festival

After three years of livestream shows, Mojang is reviving its old MineCon live event format and taking its annual Minecraft celebrations back out into the real world as Minecraft Festival.

As was the case with Minecraft’s MineCon event, which ran between 2010 and 2016 before its livestream replacement MineCon Earth took over the following year, Minecraft Festival will be a sizeable live affair, this time open to “thousands” of ticket holders.

Minecraft Festival, which is being organised by Eurogamer parent company ReedPOP, will be held from 25th-27th September at the Orange County Convention Center in Florida, and Mojang calls it “a celebration of the epic adventure we’ve all shared for the past 10 years”. It promises interactive exhibits, competitive tournaments, and live entertainment, as well as panels and the opportunity to meet content creators and the Minecraft development team.
