Today Square Enix announced the full schedule of the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival 2023 in Tokyo, which will also bring the next round of details about the next expansion titled Dawntrail.

The event will be hosted at the famous Tokyo Dome venue on January 7 and January 8, 2024.

Most of the content will be livestreamed for free except for the piano concert on January 7 and the concert of the game's band The Primals on January 8. Yet, fans not in attendance won't be completely left out as they will be viewable worldwide via paid stream.

Tickets for both performances will cost 3,500 yen (just south of $24 at the current exchange rate) and will go on sale on December 18. They will be available until February 5, so you can purchase a ticket and watch the archived stream even after the event.

Here's the full schedule of the event. All times are JST. You can subtract 8 hours for CEST, 9 for GMT, 14 for EST, and 17 for PST.

Among other things, we'll almost surely get the reveal of the second new job besides the Viper announced in October. If previous Fan Festival cycles are an indication, we may likely hear about the release date and collector's edition.
