Middle East Film and Comic Con tickets go on sale

Early bird tickets are 48 per cent off for a three-day access to the festival

Assemble your Iron Man outfit and replace the batteries in your lightsabre. It’s almost that time of the year again.

Early bird tickets for the 2020 Middle East Film and Comic Con are now on sale, offering a 48 per cent off for a three-day access to the festival.

Although single-day and family passes are yet to be released, tickets to the entire convention, which runs from March 5-7, are now available on the festival’s website for Dh185.

The pop culture convention is one of the biggest of its kind in the region, featuring everything from rare comic book selections to Q&A sessions with celebrities.

The 2020 celebrity line up of actors, cosplayers and artists has yet to be revealed. Some screen favourites who attended last year’s convention include Shazam’s Zachary Levy, The Walking Dead’s Ross Marquand, Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon, The Avenger’s Benedict Wong and Arrow's Katie Cassidy.

So if you want to make a weekend out of it, head to the festival’s website (www.mefcc.com) to purchase your three-day passes.

Try to keep from slapping on some clown make-up and attending as Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker though as we are expecting a horde of them at the convention.
