If many Minecraft fans are currently waiting for Mojang to share some news about this year’s MineCon, the developer has just announced a series of Minecraft-themed events to be held at the Sydney Australia Opera House next month. “It’s a fitting venue to witness the epic fantasy of Minecraft unfold, take part in the drama of competition, and mingle with superstars, dev-team divas and like-minded ‘crafters,” explained the developer in a blog post today.

There will be three separate sessions between Sunday, July 2 and Monday, July 3, but all of them will feature the same activities including an official Minecraft Competition, a special presentation from Mojang’s Jens Bergensten (Lead Developer) and Lydia Winters (Brand Director) as well as many other activities in the Free Play Zone and Education Zone.

Tickets are now available to purchase at at the Sydney Opera House site, and there are different tiers going from $35 to $55 with an additionnal $8.50 booking fee (the most expensive tickets are for people wanting to take part in the official Minecraft Competition). The first event will kick off on Sunday, July 2 at 5:30 PM, and we invite you to check the Sydney Opera House site to get all the details about the activities.
