Minecraft is set to take over the Sydney Opera House this July (seriously!)

The first major Minecraft competition to take place on Australian shores will kick off at the Sydney Opera House over two days during the coming school holidays. The major, main stage competition will see fans of all ages competing to build a series of increasingly impressive structures.

The show will be more than just the headline competition however, with a number of activities for all attendees to take part in happening in the foyer area all weekend. The event is open to players and enthusiasts of all ages.

For those who want to find out more about the game’s creation and ongoing success, Minecraft lead creative designer Jens Bergensten will be running interactive sessions and Lydia Winters, Brand Director at Minecaft developer Mojang, will be on hand to answer fan questions and provide insider tips and tricks.

Tickets to the show will run you $35 AUD + booking fees. Tickets go on sale on June 8 via the Opera House website, though early pre-sale tickets will be open to Opera House subscribers who sign up before 11pm June 6.
