StreetCon is a new addition to the Comic Con Africa festival this year. Comic Con Africa, Africa’s largest multi-genre pop-culture and gaming festival, will take place from 22 to 25 September 2022 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre.

A ticket to Comic Con Africa gets you access to StreetCon – a collaboration between urban and pop culture, showcasing the latest in popular streetwear, accessories and street art.

StreetCon will be a platform for 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 and tattoo alley.

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.

A live chat with Bushy Wopp has kicked things off. Buy Comic Con Africa tickets here. Comic Con Africa

Pop culture collides with urban culture

Comic Con Africa’s Show Director, Carla Massmann, expressed her excitement at the addition of StreetCon.

“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.

The show floor will 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!
