Comic Con Africa’s Show Director, Carla Massmann, expressed her excitement at the addition of StreetCon to Comic Con Africa and confirms that it is the first of many exciting things coming to the festival in September.


“Pop-culture has always been relevant in urban culture, and I’m so excited to see these two worlds collide. StreetCon will be a space where creators and curators will meet up to celebrate urban culture and where streetwear and pop culture enthusiasts can gather to shop new drops, exchange artistic expression, as well as shop for the latest in merch, accessories and art,”

said Massmann.


In addition to the above, StreetCon will be a platform for: local and upcoming street brands; the best in SA talent with live graffiti and sketch battles; the first ever street artist alley; special activations; a food truck village; tattoo alley and more.

In celebration of the launch of StreetCon, Comic Con Africa collaborated with the Cape Town born artist, Chad Hanning - aka Bushy Wopp. Through their collaboration, satirical and cartoon-like illustrations filled with cheerful colours are on track to become ingrained in South African street culture.

Kicking things off will be a live chat with Bushy Wopp on Thursday 3 March 2022.

Comic Con Africa returns bigger, better – and safer - than ever in 2022

Comic Con Africa 2022 is the ultimate pop-culture and gaming festival in Africa, and the biggest of its kind offering something for everyone in the pop culture space. With tickets on sale since December 2021, the festival is set to take place during the traditional Comic Con month of September, from the 22nd to the 25th. Ticket sales have been staggered into a phased approach to ensure the control of capacity as well as being of benefit to the early birds who buy their tickets in the early phases.

The team at Comic Con Africa HQ have spent the past two years performing the necessary due diligence to ensure that the event in 2022 will be bigger, better and safer than ever before – with the strictest of Covid protocols and measures in place, to ensure peace of mind for all attendees and vendors.

Comic Con Africa 2022 will see more activations and international talent, and in order to accommodate this growth (and social distancing measures) the event has found a new home - the Johannesburg Expo Centre at Nasrec. This venue boasts a capacity that is a great size for the anticipated 80 000 plus visitors, while still offering further growth potential for years to come with its extensive indoor and outdoor areas.

The show floor will play host to international celebrities, the best in gaming and gear, Artist Alley, pop culture merch, table top games, and of course the highly anticipated Cosplay Competitions alongside various activations leading up to the event. Not only is this a pop culture playground for enthusiasts and professionals, but there will also be the KidsCon edition, creating a space for the entire family to enjoy the ultimate day out!
