Tickets are available again from August 2021!
Since we are currently not yet aware of the official requirements for registration and access control for October 2021, we will not start selling tickets again until August.
Please note: we strongly recommend that you only buy tickets from our exclusive partner Seetickets (formerly Starticket) and always follow our current information. It must be expected that only personalised tickets can be sold and that further measures regarding the pandemic will be added.
Be careful when buying tickets:
Information about “secondary dealers” can be found here:
The tickets already purchased for FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con 2020 remain valid for the new date. Ticket return: Ticketholders will be informed directly by Seetickets about return options.
The tickets already purchased for the FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con 2020 remain valid. Friday and Saturday tickets remain, Thursday tickets become Sunday tickets (postponements possible, more information will follow). Those who cannot attend in October can return their tickets to Seetickets (formerly Starticket) until February 28, 2021. Of course, we are happy if you keep your tickets and we can see you in Basel in October!
Door opening and ticket control: Friday from 12 p.m. – Saturday / Sunday from 10 a.m.
Express Handling: Visitors with pre-sale tickets are faster in the halls.
Please provide ID cards for age control.
*In order to spare the visitors long queues at the entrance, we offer two variants of day tickets:
Early Bird Day ticket: As an “Early Bird” you can already enter the halls at 10 o’clock (Friday from 12 p.m.) and thus have 2 hours more time for bargain hunting or autographs (Number of tickets is limited!).
Late Riser Day Ticket: You’ll be able to sleep comfortably, look forward to a relaxed admission procedure and, as a “late riser”, you will be able to experience 7 exciting hours of our festival in good time in the halls.
Admission during all 3 festival days. The tickets are non-transferable, but not personalised. That means, tickets can be given away before the event, without any problem. Only after admission, the ticket or wristband can no longer be passed on.
If accompanied by their parents (or other guardians over the age of 18), kids up to the age of 9 do not pay entry fee.
Adolescents up to the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
Adolescents up to the age of 16 pay a reduced entrance fee.
If you are a mega-fan and would like to support FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con, we offer a Golden Ticket for three days.
The Golden Ticket includes:
Owners of Golden Tickets are also supporters of FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con and support the organizer to make this event possible.
Please read our general conditions for ticket purchase and visitors. Cosplayers should also read our weapons regulations.
FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con is designed to be a pleasant and positive experience for everyone. We would therefore ask you to comply with the following rules:
You may only take photos of cosplayers with their consent. We respect all peaceful people, irrespective of their religion, sexual orientation or lifestyle. We will not tolerate any discrimination and expect visitors to behave respectfully towards one another.
Without written permission from FantasyCon AG, photos taken at FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con may only be used for non-commercial purposes.
We would please ask parents to note that some cosplayers and exhibition articles might not be suitable for small and unsuspecting children. Adolescents aged under 14 may only enter if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. The PEGI 18-game area as well as the horror corner (it will be marked in the map) can be avoided with small children (more details can be asked at our information desk). However, Cosplayers can be seen all over the festival area.
It is allowed to bring food and drinks for children.
No costume requirement!
We are often asked if you have to wear a costume: No, most visitors visit us in normal street clothes. But we are happy about great cosplay costumes – visitors please refer to our Cosplay Respect Code.
We understand cosplay as an art in the gaming and film sector: Advertising figures of products or companies and offensive costumes are neither admitted to the contests nor the FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con in general, as well.
Even if you have a valid ticket, you may be denied entry to FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con if you do not comply with the cosplay rules or adhere to the festival regulations. If you are denied entry, you will not be entitled to a refund of your ticket price. We would please ask all cosplayers to adhere to the Insignia Act, which forbids the display of certain signs and symbols. We also do not allow any symbols used by extreme organisations.
We would please ask all cosplayers to comply with our weapons regulation. Switzerland is not an EU country, so please note the following when crossing the border from abroad.
Unpacked weapons and weapon-like objects are not permitted in public areas or on public transport. There is a ban on face coverings in Basel. Please also remove any face masks, helmets, etc. before entering any business premises, shops or restaurants within the city of Basel.
Cosplayers possessing any replica weapons that are permitted under our weapon regulations must get these checked and labelled by our weapons inspectors before entering the festival.
There are changing / make-up rooms available. Rejected costumes / weapons cannot be deposited at the weapons regulation booth. A normal wardrobe is available for a fee.
Dogs and other pets are not allowed onto the fair premises. For reasons of animal ethics and safety as well as due to the special conditions in the halls with partially increased visitor density and various, often spontaneous sources of noise and action, companion and assistance dogs are also not allowed.
Infringement will result in your ticket being withdrawn.
Our security staff are authorised to search bags and luggage and to carry out additional security checks.
Taking along alcoholic drinks, food and more than 1 Lt of mineral water is not allowed. Parents with children are allowed to bring their own food and drinks for the kids.
The exhibition grounds are generally accessible by wheelchair. Unfortunately, we can not grant accompanying persons any price reduction.
Age restrictions: Certain games have a minimum age restriction. The providers of these games will therefore carry out their own age checks or issue age-coded wristbands.
Tickets allow holders to gain entry to the fair premises, but not to all the panels, shows, autograph sessions and side events. Once the detailed programme is announced, we will advise which events will not be free to enter.
Access to certain halls may be restricted if there are already too many visitors in any particular area. You will not be entitled to a refund of your ticket price if you have been required to wait or if certain areas have been closed.
At FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con we and several media will film and take pictures. The taken recordings will be used for advertising and our own products for the FANTASY BASEL – The Swiss Comic Con and ZURICH GAME SHOW. Taking picture and recording film material in the public areas of the event is only allowed for private usage. To use the Photo/Film material commercially there has to be obtained approval from the organizer.
