CityLAN

Southern Peninsula of Cape Town: Gaming Event (City Lan)

Frequently Asked Questions

Tickets can be purchased here on the site.

There are two options for payment:

  • Online (Via PayFast)
  • At the door (SnapScan / Cash)

You will be able to purchase tickets on the day, but this will result in a delay for you getting to your seat, as you will need to fill in forms. So skip the queue and book now! There is also a set amount of seats "30" so make sure you don't miss out on getting a seat by waiting till the day of the Lan.

Please note:

  • You must be 13 or older to attend.
  • You will need a ticket to enter the LAN area.

The venue for the Lan will be Longbeach Mall - Please check your ticket / LAN poster for store number

The event is hosted in an empty store in the mall, so it is completely separate from the public.

The lan will start at 12:00pm (Midday) on Saturday morning and ends 8:00am on Monday morning.

  • Your ID (or other identification)
  • PC and all its trimmings (monitor, mouse, keyboard, headphones(no loudspeakers), mousepad) - Please note we do not provide any gaming hardware, you must bring your own equipment.
  • Double power plug (Short extension lead, with enough plugs for all your devices).
  • Pillow for sitting on / and or sleeping.
  • Sleeping bag (mattress / something comfy to rest or sleep on)
  • Cash / SnapScan for food and drinks (and if you opted to pay at the door) - you can also bring your own. (Its inside a shopping centre, so there are shops and restaurants, if you want something we don't have. We will provide drinks, snacks and other food items throughout the event).

We have a wide variety of meals, snacks and drinks for sale, see our July 2018 Menu For all the details.

These form part of a guideline for people to follow when engaging on CityLAN chat groups / social media - If these rules are not followed you will get a warning and then a ban.

  • No hate speak / derogatory statements
  • Be open to other peoples idea's and do not belittle them for what they say.
  • Be friendly! We are all here to have fun.
  • Make friends!
  • Respect the Admins on the groups (Linda, Sacha, Daniel, Paul, Zack) - They have the power of the Ban!

 

Whatsapp Groups:

  • There are two groups:
    • CityLAN (This is the main group, please do not post general things here, this is for LAN announcements  / notifications, questions about the LAN are allowed).
    • CityLAN ChitChat (In here you can go wild, as long as you follow the rules above, post cool gaming things / other cool things here and get to know each other).
  • You are welcome to ask for an invite link to either of these groups.
