After the last two years went virtual, PAX Australia returns for an in person event. The community will come together Oct. 7-9 for the celebration of gaming and pop culture. It’s the largest event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Tickets are on sale now, and may sell out.
PAX Australia and International Games Week
PAX Australia, will again be part of the Melbourne International Games Week. The Festival runs for a full week from Oct. 1-9. PAX Aus will be the final event on the calendar. Melbourne International Games Week is a celebration of games, technology, and culture. Other events on the MIGW calendar include workshops, panels, tournaments, concerts, and Games Connect Asia Pacific.
It’s the perfect week to host PAX Aus, as this convention brings together gaming, technology, and pop culture alike. Both PAX Aus and MIGW are set to be the biggest yet. According to Luke Lancaster, the Head of Content & Partnerships for PAX Aus, the team have been planning the 2022 convention for the last three years. He encourages fans to “strap in for everything you love about the show, as well as some brand new stuff we’ll no doubt tease you with over the coming months.”
How to get your badge
There are a variety of tickets, or badges, available and they nearly always sell out. Fans are known to sit online for hours, refreshing the website and waiting in virtual queues to obtain their passes.
This year, PAX Aus is doing something a little different. Ticket sales will be live at 12 noon AEDT on the ticketing website. The new platform for badge sales will be using a new virtual queue system to ensure the platform is stable for all buyers.
