Largest gaming festival in Slovenia returns to Ljubljana

Game Gang Show is the the gaming spectacle of the year

Between 5 and 7 April 2024, the Game Gang Show welcomed gaming enthusiasts and computer wizards from Slovenia and the region at the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. The event has gained acclaim as the leading Slovenian gaming festival. On the first day, over 3000 participants flocked to the event venue. 

Participants could experience big eSports competitions, where the best regional pro players compete, indulge in nostalgia with old retro games and devices, see great cosplay costumes and meet new friends who share the same passion. At the festival, participants met game developers who presented their innovative projects.

A total of 10 tournaments in the world’s most popular esports titles were played, with impressive cash prize pools. The highest prize was 10,000 EUR for the EA FC24 game. The Game Gang Show also hosted a sea of other competitions and e-sports challenges on the Expo exhibitor floor. E-sports are becoming increasingly popular, and three professional clubs in Slovenia prove that. The event was organised by Sport Media Focus and Big Bang.

Showcasing the latest and greatest in the gaming community

All three days of the Game Gang Show 2024 showcase only the best of the digital entertainment world. The organisers unveiled a diverse accompanying educational programme for attendees where they had the chance to hear about the novelties in the industry from seasoned gaming experts. Blaž Vižintin, the Executive Director of Veleven Studios, delved into the dangers and advantages of the popular social media platform TikTok.

“On the main stage, 24 finalists competed for first place in the video game EA FC24. The competition was sponsored by Telekom Slovenija and was a simulation of the upcoming UEFA EURO 2024. Mastercard also gave away tickets for the finals of the UEFA Champions League to lucky audience members,” the organisers explained.
