Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

Twitch announced Tuesday that TwitchCon 2017 tickets are now on sale.

Fans can purchase early bird tickets for TwitchCon, which takes place Oct. 20-22 at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, Calif. The early bird package costs $159 for the three-day pass and automatic admission to the Saturday party, which is new this year. The same package costs $179 for non-early bird purchase and $199 on site.

Friday and Sunday only tickets cost $89 in advance and $109 on site, with no early bird deal available. Saturday tickets (which come with party admission) cost $109 advance and $129 on site, also with no early bird deal. No standalone party tickets will be available.

Twitch also released a detailed FAQ about TwitchCon on its website along with hotel information and suggestions.

TwitchCon will include a Talent Show again this year and has opened the requirements for possible entrants.

“We will be featuring an even more open call for acts, removing categorical restrictions and opening the showcase to any creator who has regularly streamed to Creative on Twitch,” Twitch said in a news release. “In order to apply for consideration, performers must submit a video audition, which will be reviewed by a selection panel. Selected performers will be featured live on the main stage at TwitchCon 2017, as well as receive free convention admission with a travel stipend.”
