ICON is one of the biggest geek and culture events in South Africa, and it’s returning in 2017 for its 25th time.

This year’s offering is absolutely packed with events, panels and stores to buy just about anything.

The list of special guests is headlined by James L. Sutter, someone you may know as co-creator of Pathfinder. Another famous international attendee is cosplayer Linda Le, better known as ‘Vampy Bit Me’.

That’s just the surface level of what you can expect this weekend, so make sure you check out the schedule to see when your favourite panels will be happening.

Get your tickets from Tixsa and make sure you choose your ticket type and add ons carefully. The Saturday Comedy Night and the Pokémon  TCG event are opptional extra you’ll need to pay for.

Check out this quick gallery of what we saw at a previous ICON to see what you’re in for. We’ve attended many of the past iterations and hope to see you there.
