EVE Online's Fanfest is a go for next year, taking players again to a volcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic, Iceland. This coming Fanfest is a big one, as CCP Games is celebrating 20 years of EVE Online.

The upcoming even will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland on September 21-23, 2023. EVE Online's big player event will feature the panels, presentations and more from EVE developers and players alike, as well as the pub crawl around the Icelandic capital, and the Party at the Top of the World. 

EVE Online's Fanfest 2023 tickets have gone on sale, with Early Bird tickets starting at $159 USD, while standard tickets after the Early Bird ones sell out will sell for $259 USD.

EVE Online's Fanfest is also celebrating 20 years of the MMORPG in 2023, with Fanfest acting as a way for CCP Games to show their "commitment" to the concept of EVE Forever

Via this morning's press release: 

“Fanfest 2023 will be the biggest celebration of EVE yet. EVE will live forever, but will only turn twenty once,” said CCP Creative Director Bergur Finnbogason. “We’re giving the community an extraordinary experience, reflecting on what this universe has given us, and showing our commitment to making EVE live on forever. EVE is entering its third decade strong and we have no plans of slowing down. The game's future has never been brighter with the recent Uprising expansion and continued EVE Evolved updates. Our community continues to inspire us and we couldn’t be more grateful for their efforts over the last twenty years.”

Additionally, at Fanfest 2022, games outlet The Escapist filed a documentary commemorating the MMO's return to its yearly fan festivals. Aptly named the EVE Fanfest Documentary, CCP and The Escapist gave a glimpse at what fans can expect when the full documentary releases next year.
