EVE Fanfest Returns in 2022

2021-11-04 - By EVE Online Team

Resilient Capsuleers,

The time has come to finally reunite with your fellow Capsuleers from around the world – in person – as EVE Fanfest returns to Iceland in 2022! As the opportunity to meet up with your space friends and celebrate together becomes a reality once more, this unique event is not to be missed after such a long time apart.

From 6-7 May 2022, you’ll be able to enjoy presentations about EVE (both from developers and other EVE experts - including Scott Manley!), roundtables, charity dinner, a silent auction, and a player tournament. Of course, no Fanfest would be complete without the legendary pub crawl, as well as the Party at the Top of the World. There’ll also be plenty of other unofficial events to enjoy (not included in the ticket price) between 5-8 May. More details of these will be released soon.

Fanfest will be returning to its roots for the 2022 event. Laugardalshöll arena is the chosen venue this time, the scene of many a beloved Fanfest in the past - and home to Riot’s Worlds! This one-time-only return to Laugardalshöll will be your chance to witness how the EVE community and development teams embrace one another, bringing legendary levels of fun and camaraderie to the gathering.

Tickets are available now, but act fast as the best-priced Early Bird tickets always sell out quickly. Since Fanfest is returning after quite some time, there’ll be a limited supply of tickets for the event overall. Secure your tickets today to make sure you do not miss out on an unforgettable experience! For more information, check out the EVE Fanfest page

Iceland is safe to travel to and remains an incredible destination, thanks to an embarrassment of riches when it comes to natural wonders - including a newly-erupted volcano! There’s never been a better time to visit, so why not combine the return of Fanfest in 2022 with an amazing holiday to one of the world’s most unique locations?

The world is ever-changing when it comes to COVID-19 and the precautions it requires. Come May 2022, we will err on the side of caution, and work closely with local health authorities to ensure that EVE players have a great - and safe - experience. Following Iceland's Directorate of Health Travel Guidance, everyone coming to Fanfest will be required to show proof of vaccination. Depending on the recommendation of health officials nearer the time, we may require attendees to be tested before entering the arena. This is all done to ensure that we can enjoy each other’s company without worry.

The gate is green. We cannot wait to meet you all in person here in Iceland, trade stories, party together as we celebrate EVE’s 19th birthday, and so much more.
