The FFXIV Fan Fest 2023 Las Vegas Schedule was just announced! Here are all the details on where to watch and when!
The Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada will take place from July 28 to July 29. It is the first Fan Fest to take place since the beginning of the pandemic and since the reveal of FFXIV's Shadowbringers Expansion back in 2023.
It is the first of three Fan Fests which not only celebrate the longevity of the critically acclaimed MMORPG which is currently in its 10th year of service after the relaunch with A Realm Reborn. It is also the big event that will reveal and announce everything around the next expansion, 7.0.
If you're not making the trip to Vegas, you can still be part of the action. As is tradition most of the On Stage activities such as Q&A's and so on will be streamed live to all the official channels.
And here is how you can watch the event live and the entire schedule!
How and Where to Watch
As always, you'll be able to watch all the stage events of the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest 2023 (excluding the live concerts). These streams will be available in English and Japanese, unlike the Letters from the Producer Live.
