Well, if you didn’t grab a PAX Australia pass when they went on sale yesterday, you’re out of luck – three day passes have now sold out, leaving only individual day passes for sale. Content and community manager Guy Blomberg told MCV Pacific that the allocation was significantly larger than last year’s, and described the rapid sale as “crazy”. PAX Australia runs October 31 through November 2 in Melbourne.

PAX Australia has expanded its capacity in response to popular demand, securing a new exhibition space and issuing more tickets. Although individual day passes were still available, Saturday was completely sold out, making it difficult for those hoping to attend the whole show to grab tickets. The new Saturday passes are already running low so if you’re thinking of attending the Melbourne event this July get on board immediately.
Thanks, MCV Pacific.
