PAX Australia 2014 confirmed

New venue and dates locked in

PAX Australia will return to Melbourne in 2014, with new dates and a larger venue confirmed.

Following the success of this year's inaugural PAX Australia, the festival will move to the larger Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre in 2014.


According to a statement by organisers, the new venue provides triple the theatre space compared with its previous location at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

PAX Australia 2014 will take place between October 31 and November 2. While registration is not yet open, prices will range between $55 for a single day pass, through to $150 for the whole weekend.

The 2013 PAX Australia was the first international event for the popular festival. It took place in Melbourne in July, with CVG Australia correspondent Darren Wells describing it as "a massive, sweeping love letter to gaming and games culture".

PAX Australia 2013 featured speakers including Gearbox's Anthony Burch and BioWare's Cameron Lee.
