                    Hey mates.

                    Just letting you all know we are monitoring the current situation surrounding Covid 19 closely. Until we are 100% sure of how things are going to look in August all funds from entry fees and sponsors will remain untouched.

                    For now mates please stay safe. If you are in regular close contact with someone vulnerable, please be careful about the public environments you expose yourself to.

                    Be sure to reach out to friends, family, neighbours and other people within the community who may need assistance going to the shops, getting medication or may simply need some advice on where they should or should not visit.

                    Also wash your hands. Hot soapy water. Do it. Do it now. Then do it again.

                    Big love, the BPAC Massive

                      As many of you may have been expecting, we unfortunately have to cancel the Brisbane Pinball and Arcade Collective showcase of 2020 in its entirety.

                      It saddened us as a committee to come to this decision, but there is simply too much uncertainty regarding the coming months. We considered all alternatives and while we wish to remain open to the possibility of running an event later in the year, there is no certainty around the capacity we'll have to give you the best possible event.

                      We hope that you will all understand this decision and incredibly, the fine people at the ticketing platform Humanitix will be refunding all tickets in full, including any merchandise purchased. You can expect to see funds reappear in your accounts in the coming days.

                      We would like to take this opportunity to thank our committee who have already volunteered countless hours to BPAC 2020.

                      In particular, we’d like to thank Jason Lambert for curating the greatest 10-day pinball event on earth and Jon Tannahill for creating an equally exciting and varied 10-day arcade schedule that we can’t wait to see come to fruition in 2021.

                      We’d also like to offer thanks to local Brisbane artist Nelson Gibbins for putting together such an incredible art package. Nelson worked like a demon putting the entire collection together including posters, t-shirts, pins, and badges. Thanks also to Luke Shield for making everything plum and shiny for printing.

                      Thanks must also go to the sponsors Pincadia, Netherworld, Game the System, 1UP Arcade Australia, Pinball Haus,
                      Soft Plunge Pinball, Double Danger Pinball Accessories, Comet Pinball and especially Wayne from Mr Pinball Australia who was backing the event as our major sponsor in 2020. Wayne has already offered to get behind us in 2021!

                      Also we can not thank the crew at Newstead Brewing Co. enough for their incredible support of the event and being so accommodating with every idea and requests we had. We can't wait to create an event in the incredible space upstairs in 2021.

                      Lastly, a supermassive thanks to everyone in the community for supporting the event. There were over $30,000 in ticket sales over just 2 weeks, with several events selling out and the Brisbane Masters tracking for its biggest attendance to date.

                      Knowing how much support we have from the community and how much people were looking forward to this event makes the entire team deeply committed to bringing you the best event we can in 2021.

                      Again, we are deeply sorry to have to make this decision, but 100% committed to bringing you the best arcade and pinball events in the future.

                      We will endeavour to select and announce the dates for 2021 in the coming weeks.

                      If you have any questions please shoot us a message at

                      Stay safe. Stay well.

                      Big love,The BPAC Massive
