TwitchCon 2016 update: Party, panels, and more

You didn’t think we’d have TwitchCon without throwing a party, did you?

We’re well on our way down the road to TwitchCon 2016 and that means more details are coming into focus. Today we’re excited to announce info on the official TwitchCon party and more than 70 panels.

First, let’s talk party. Last year TwitchCon 2015 closed out the weekend with a killer show featuring the duDudu DJ himself, Darude, and a special surprise performance by deadmau5.

This year, we’re breaking out of the confines of the San Diego Convention Center for Twitch’s biggest party ever. How big? Stadium big. Petco Park big. Join us on the field for the return of Darude and a special mystery A-list headliner. We can’t spill the beans and name them yet, but you will not be disappointed.

Tickets to the party are exclusively available to TwitchCon attendees age 18+, so if you haven’t purchased your TwitchCon badge yet, now is the time! You can get order both your badge and party ticket RIGHT HERE

To add a party ticket to your existing TwitchCon order, click on ‘Details’ next to your order and you’ll be given the option to add it on.

For a full run down on ticket options, you can visit twitchcon.com/tickets to read more and also place your order.

Panels, panels, and more panels

When the TwitchCon 2016 Call for Content was announced, we couldn’t have anticipated the massive response. The Community submitted so many incredible ideas that it was almost impossible to narrow it down to the best of the best, but we made some extra strong coffee, stayed up all night, and persevered.

TwitchCon 2016 will feature over 70 panels for our Community and Industry track guests. Topics will cover everything from diversity, streaming with disabilities, protecting yourself online, to building your audience/channel, and even a live Dropped Frames broadcast with hosts itmeJP, CohhCarnage, and Ezekiel_III. Check out the full list of panels right here.

Limited Edition Merch

This week also marks the launch of a new teespring campaign featuring shirts from select TwitchCon 2016 featured streamers and an official Road to TwitchCon shirt. They’re pretty awesome on their own, but because it’s a special occasion, they all come with an exclusive Bleed Purple sticker. This limited edition campaign ends on July 31.


TwitchCon 2016 is taking place September 30 — October 2 at the San Diego Convention Center. Tickets are still available, but going fast. Click here to order your badge and party ticket before it’s too late.
