The rAge expo turns 16 this year and the event organisers have already announced that it’ll run from 5th October to 7th October at its usual home – the Ticketpro Dome in North Riding, Johannesburg.

Up until this week, however, there wasn’t any word on when tickets to this annual gathering for gamers, geeks and cosplayers would be available. This was put to rights when the expo’s official account tweeted out the details.

Tickets to the rAge expo will go on sale on the 1st of May and if you want to attend the event’s NAGLAN, you can pick up a ticket on 28th July. There’s no word on pricing for either of these sets of tickets yet.

If you’re interested picking up tickets you may want to mark your calendars, because they’ll likely move fast. Last year, 35 845 people attended rAge and 2 000 gamers spent the weekend at NAGLAN. Those are some pretty serious numbers.

If more information on ticket prices, games, events and attendees becomes available, you’ll know as soon as we do!
