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.

The Swiss Cosplay Contest is also about performance this year! The jury will judge costume and performance.
