• How is the festival affected by Corona?


    We have done our best to keep hope alive and prepare for the festival this summer. Now, the Swedish government has said that the cap of 50 people at events is likely to remain throughout the summer. Unfortunately, that means we have to postpone the festival until next year, July 29–August 1 2021.

    All purchased tickets, accomodation, Artist Alley passes, cosplay passes and other products will be valid for next year instead. You don’t need to do anything for this to happen and it will help us a lot if you choose to keep your tickets! But if you do want to return them you may do so here.

    Postponing the festival feels very sad! We were so much looking forward to this year’s festival and we know that it’s a highlight of the year to many people. But we will get through this! And we will use this extra time to make next year’s festival really special.

    If you had a scheduled activity, such as a panel or meetup, you will need to apply again next year. You will receive an email when applications open.

    We will open sales of tickets to NärCon Sommar 2021 on May 20. NärCon Vinter will be held as usual during week 8 and tickets will be available this fall.

    This is a tough time and we need to support each other. Here are some things you can do to help us (and your friends!):

    • If you’ve bought tickets, keep them and the hype for next summer!
    • If you haven’t, buy them this Wednesday.
    • Keep the hype alive! Hang with us on Discord (http://discord.narcon.se/), tag us in your cosplay pictures (#närcon), share an aftermovie, invite a friend or anything else that’s fun!

    We hope to see you next year, but more importantly – take care of yourself and stay in touch with us before then! ❤︎
