FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con postponed again: instead of November 2020 now from May 13th – 15th, 2021!
Due to the uncertain situation regarding the effects of the coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the event again. The FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con, which attracted 54,000 visitors in 2019, will take place again on Ascension from May 13th – 15th, 2021.
We have tried a long time to hold our festival in November. The absence of large exhibitors and the current development of the coronavirus situation, which would also have made it impossible for stars to arrive from the USA, thwarted these plans. The FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con lives from its diversity, size, and above all from the warmth and joy of the visitors. A carefree encounter, a happy get-together as it is lived at our festival, is currently hardly possible. Spontaneous photoshoots with cosplayers are hard to imagine under the given distance rules. The unique atmosphere of the FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con, which we are all used to, would no longer be tangible. Besides, due to the current situation, short-term decisions by the authorities that could make such an event impossible must be expected. The safety of our visitors, guests, and employees is more important to us than realising an event, which is associated with risks that cannot currently be assessed. We want to offer visitors a high quality, familiar FANTASY BASEL experience and hope that this will now be possible in May 2021!
From November 13th – 15th, 2020, however, a digital festival experience including a special Cosplay Contest will be implemented for the fans. More on this online program will be announced in October.
Already purchased tickets remain valid. In the next few days, we will inform you on our website and our social media channels about the options of ticket returning for those who are unable to attend the next year. Advanced ticket sales for the FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con 2021 will start at the beginning of December.
Please contact us only by email; because we have to work on a reduced basis at the moment.
We would like to thank you very much for your understanding and your loyalty. We are happy about your help that FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con can take place again in May 2021 and become a huge happening for all of us!
Take care and stay safe!
