What can we expect from Minecon 2015?

Minecon opening ceremony

With Tickets for MineCon sold out, over 10,000 of you can expect an immense fun filled weekend!

This years MineCon event is going to be full of interactive attractions, Minecraft exhibitors, and of course you interesting bunch! We’re looking forward to it just as much as you are.


The real question is:  what’s going to be happening at MineCon 2015? and what can we expect from it?

In this article we look at:

  • The great things going on at MineCon 2015
  • Exhibitors and attractions at MineCon
  • Event information

This years event is going to be held at the ExCel London Exhibition & Conference Centre.

Set to fill the house with over 10,000 people, the halls will be flooded with parents, children and Minecraft enthusiasts all wanting to get stuck in with the action.


Throughout the weekend (4th July – 5th July), you can expect to see your favorite YouTubers playing with others along with meet and greets.

It doesn’t end there:

As is traditional with MineCon there will of course be a Costume contest.

Hundreds of people come creatively dressed as their favorite Minecraft character and are then presented up on stage with other contestants.

It is then decided by a panel of Judges who has the best Costume at the entire event.

2013 actually saw a tie between the two mob contest winners with one of the winners (pictured below) dressed fully as an enderdragon.

Maybe we’ll see even more crazy costumes this year?

Main stage events is where it’s at

If the tons of exhibitors at the event aren’t enough of a pull for you, the main stage will be packed crazy with A LOT of entertaining features.

Based on last year’s line up we expect great things for this year too! In 2013 the main stage varied from “Sky does Minecraft” singing “New world” to in depth developer talks and presentations.

This variety made the entire event complete as people from all over the world get a chance to see their favourite Youtubers or developers on stage talking exclusively to them.

From this it can be expected that we’ll find even more entertainment on the Main stage for 2015.

Although no official schedule of the weekend has been released yet, we’re sure that there will be:

  • Minecraft mini game tournaments
  • Your favorite youtubers presenting on stage
  • Future release talk for Minecraft
  • Developer talks from Mojang developers
  • Costume competition winner’s and announcements

When an official timetable has been released we’ll be sure to update you.
