New year, new MINECON!

MINECON Earth

MINECON is a worldwide celebration of the community, the game, and the joy that Minecraft continues to bring people around the world. In the past, it’s been a single massive convention – but today, the Minecraft team announced how they’re shaking up MINECON this year with two new elements! Here’s what you can expect:

MINECON Earth

MINECON Earth is a global interactive livestream event broadcast from two continents on November 18 and viewed by players around the world from their living rooms or at local viewing parties, retailers, theatres and community events. The 90-minute livestream will take place on November 18 at 12 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. GMT on mixer.com/minecraft. If you’re new to Mixer, head over here for tips on getting started viewing and streaming!

Official Minecraft Community Events

We’ve teamed up with Minefaire, MineVention and BLOCKFEST to create authentic Minecraft events, a little closer to home. Players will get to meet their favorite YouTubers and streamers, compete in tournaments and costume contests, see unique content and much more. We’re excited to share more details really soon, but check out the Minefaire and MineVention websites for more info in the meantime!

With the combination of our livestream and the official Minecraft community events, we’re excited to make it easier for EVERYONE to participate from all around the world.  Anyone with a broadband internet connection can watch the livestream from wherever they are. We’ll have more details to share soon on exciting ways for you to get involved from wherever you are.

Save the date for MINECON on November 18, and head over to Minecraft.net for even more details about this exciting news!
