Fantasy Basel—The Swiss Comic Con
Basel is hosting Switzerland’s biggest comic convention for anime, comics, contemporary urban art, cosplay fans, e-sports, film props, games, gaming design, manga, movies, science fiction, steampunk, tattoo art, virtual reality, and walking acts. Fantasy Basel is a mixture of adventure world, exhibition, and party—the place to be for fantasy freaks, digital geeks, and game addicts! Spread over more than 70,000 m2 at the Messe Basel, Fantasy Basel combines art, design, high tech, and passion, allowing creative minds and consumers to spend three days in a real and imaginary world.
Highlights include the STAR WARS fan props, Nintendo games & Just Dance Stage, “Cosmic Voyage” by Swiss Space Museum, movie sets in the fan-made STAR WARS Zone, and cosplay guests and shows.
The Swiss Cosplay Contest is also about performance this year! The jury will judge costume and performance. In addition to the main prizes, there are special prizes for the best craftsmanship and the best performance. For the 2022 edition, celebrities from film, TV, and gaming will be live on site for autograph sessions and photos—check the website for up-to-date info on exact times and location. Panels and shows will take place on two big stages and in three panel rooms and cinemas, e-sports on the Swiss Gaming Challenge stage. Guests can look forward to an extensive program with cool guest stars!
The Swiss Comic Con 2022 will once again take place in Hall 2 at Messe Basel with its large circular courtyard. However, as in 2021, Hall 1 will house the main entrance, the main stage, and the area for STAR WARS, space, and cosplay fans.
