The skies in Jozi are littered with clouds but that hasn’t stopped droves of people flocking to Montecasino to attend this year’s GeekFest event.
If you plan on attending we advise that you dress warmly as the event is taking place outside. That having been said there are tents scattered around the venue that you can use to shield yourself from the elements and perhaps you’ll be tempted to spend some of your money on the wares being offered up.
Speaking of which if you’ve been looking to get your hands on some geeky merchandise whether that be Pokémon onesies, posters, board-games or mugs emblazoned with your favourite emblem.
There is ample food, drink and activities to do throughout the weekend which you can read more about on the event website. We highly recommend the pizza in a cone.
For those that can’t attend or need a bit of convincing take a look at our gallery below.
Tickets are available online through Quicket or you can simply pay your entrance fee when you arrive at the gate today or tomorrow.
