Hello, my son is asking Santa for Minecon Earth tickets for 2019 and says his friend at school has them. I’ve been trying to find out more details but even an online search isn’t revealing anything. Is there such a show planned? If so, are there any tickets available? This a feeling like a tall order for Santa! Thanks for any help you can provide.
Starting a couple of years ago, Mojang switched Minecon from a physical convention format to a live-streamed format, so except for the very few people who may be invited to attend at the physical location of where the streamed event is being produced, it is purely a live-streamed event. Because of this format switch, as far as I know, there are no tickets to Minecon available any more. If your son's friends are claiming to have Minecon 2019 tickets, they are almost certainly lying.
The previous two Minecon live-streamed events have occurred late in the year (September-November), so the next one is most likely a ways off.
What sunperp said, is that you can view Minecon Earth for free now. You can see it on YouTube, Twitch, the official Minecraft website, wherever they stream. Yes there will be physical tickets as well since if you look closely at the cosplay contests, there are kids there and after that, there is the sound of applause which indicates that Minecon Earth is both physical and online. There is a very high chance that we will have Minecon Earth 2019 but the recent one was in September which is 9 months away from the time of this reply. We don't know for certain when it will be and where it's hosted.
