SoCal LANFest SoCal

The first LANFest SoCal for 2013 is here! LANFest SoCal returns to Cal Poly Pomona from April 26th to 28th for an action packed weekend of tournaments, contests, raffles, and more. We have a great BYOC section, a console area, a movie area, and a nice stage located inside Cal Poly Pomona's Bronco Student Center. All attendees are entered in a drawing to win our best prizes provided by our many sponsors.


Due to the amount of requests of those who lagged on registering for the event, we have opened up a waiting list for Sunday Only. Please see the link for additional details and to enter your name onto the waitlist. It will be FIRST COME FIRST SERVE

NOTE: You do not need to register for both a General & Tournament seat to compete in a pay-to-play tournament. Simply select "Tournament BYOC (GAME)", which reserves your spot in one of the pay-to-play tournaments, as well as all activies that General BYOC offers! Additional fee for pay-to-play tournaments is outlined in that tournament's rules, and will be collected at the venue.

Event Areas

We have the traditional BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer or Console), connect to a Local Area Network (LAN) and play with friends. There's also an area with demo machines to test drive the latest technology from our sponsors. We also have vendor booth area where you can check their products and participate on additional activites for extra prizes. Finally, we have added a nice resting area that doubles as our console area so you can play Halo, Call of Duty, or whatever floats your boat. :)
