Tournaments, Concerts, and things to do
TwitchCon is similar to any other convention in that it is merely a container for a lot of things happening inside. The beauty of TwitchCon is that it gathers so many different communities and puts them under one roof. TwitchCon has so much going on that it is best to look at the official schedule, but there are some events that stand out that are worthy of special attention.
The Rivals series has been a tradition on Twitch that pits the best streamers and pro players in a variety of games for prize money. This year, Twitch is having some big Twitch Rival competitions at TwitchCon including: League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Fortnite, and APEX: Legends. The Twitch Rival Arena will certainly be the spot if you are big on esports, or big on seeing your favorite competitive streamer on Twitch's biggest stage.
The TwitchCon Party is unfortunately sold out, but if you already have a ticket then you can look forward to Lil Nas X headlining the TwitchCon party at Petco Park! This is always a great spectacle and Lil Nas X knows how to throw a good show.
Walking around TwitchCon will certainly be an adventure. At the convention itself, there will be meet and greets scheduled with your favorite content creators, interactive booths with high profile brands, the loot cave where you can buy Twitch merch, an artist alley with a variety of artwork from individual creators and a Games Done Quick Express; this will feature 50 hours of high quality speedruns. No matter where you go on the TwitchCon floor, you are bound to be interested in something.
