So how do you get your tickets?

The tickets themselves will be distributed beginning at 11 a.m. local time on June 14. However, Microsoft says that fans can start lining up for them at 10 p.m. local time on Saturday, June 13th, adding, "Lineup will take place near LensCrafters, on Avenue of the Stars."
Once you get your ticket. here's what you will be able to check out:

- Invite to the exclusive Xbox FanFest Party, Monday afternoon, June 15th, where fans will get to play the best exclusives and biggest blockbuster games this holiday and beyond.
- VIP access to the Xbox esports Celebrity Challenge & Twitch Party sponsored by Xbox.
- The chance to meet some of the industry's top developers, leaders, and influencers.
- Even more surprise events during the week.
One of those surprise events could be a chance to attend E3 2015 itself at the LA Convention Center.
