Pokémon Go will host its first Go Fest event in the UK this summer, with three days of jackpots centered around London’s Brockwell Park.
Go Fest 2023 in London runs from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th August and early bird tickets are now on sale (£27). As with last year’s Seattle Go Fest, half a day will be spent at the park and the rest of his day will be spent exploring the local area. This time the bonus is available throughout Greater London.
The Osaka, Japan-based version took place on the same dates, with New York selected to host the US leg of the event, which takes place August 18-20.
No word yet on the focus of this year’s Go Fest. Things like stories, featured Pokemon, and other exclusive content. But each event is usually a great gathering for the game’s always-excited community. This time, it’s right here in the UK.
saw 2022 Pokémon GO Fest is back as an in-person event for the first time in three years, the European part was held in Berlin. I traveled, and attendees got early access to the game’s mighty Ultra Beasts, and it was as fun as ever, in addition to the usual region-specific costumed shiny creatures.
Last month, I spoke with Pokémon GO developer Niantic about the controversial changes to remote raids taking place in-game. Niantic hinted at a ‘blockbuster slate’ of features for this summer’s game.
