The annual E3 gaming show in Los Angeles is not open to the public. This will not be changing for 2016, however, a new “E3 Live 2016” event will let anyone in the area check out games and meet industry personalities.

E3 Live is being described as a “new, one-of-a-kind celebration of video games” and “E3’s first-ever gathering for gamers.” It is the event for folks who aren’t press to get in on the action, instead of just watching it from home.

Tickets are free, but are described as being in “limited” quantity. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The tickets are not yet available, but you can register here to grab them as soon as they start to distribute.

The event, which runs for a limited number of hours on June 14th, 15th, and 16th, is held at LA Live. This is located right next to the Los Angeles Convention Center, the actual site of E3, so fans will be close to the action. It’s open to all ages, but people under 17 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The website for E3 Live explains “there will be games, gadgets, and gear” to check out, while there will also be live music and, of course, dance competitions. Attendees will also be able to partake in “one-of-a-kind” photo ops and check out virtual reality demos. For collectors, there will also be merchandise available to buy at the event.
