Earlier today, Mojang released an announcement, with all the details you wanted to know about Minecon 2016 tickets (and a lot more information about Minecon 2016 in general).

If this is the first you’ve heard about Minecon 2016, here’s a quick refresher: It’ll be held on September 24-25th at Anaheim Convention Center, California, USA. Mojang is also touting it as the biggest Minecon ever, with 12,000 attendees.

Ticket Details:

Tickets will go on sale on May 6th and May 7th, in two separate batches. The countdown to the two batches is available at minecon.minecraft.net. According to Mojang:

  • Tickets will be $160 each (3 years old and under are free).
  • Tickets will only be sold at https://minecon.minecraft.net, and they will be sold through Eventbrite.
  • 6,000 tickets will go on sale at 6pm PDT (that’s Los Angeles time) on Friday, May 6, 2016.
  • 6,000 additional tickets will go on sale at 12pm noon PDT on Saturday, May 7, 2016.
  • You will be able to purchase up to 6 tickets on one order.
  • You will need the name of EACH person you are buying a ticket for at the time you purchase tickets, you’ll need to enter these details to complete your order.
  • Tickets cannot be resold and are non-transferrable, the person whose name is on the ticket at the time of purchase is the person who will be admitted to MINECON. This means you cannot resell tickets.

Mojang also has a pretty cool FAQ regarding Minecon events, which you can read in full on the announcement page!
