Gamescom 2022 Week is full of events, parties, parties, concerts, and signing sessions – overview.

Update August 17, 2022: For security reasons, the exact arrival times of individual YouTubers, streamers, influencers and VIPs should not be communicated at all or only in a very short time. Therefore, we will probably be able to add a few dates only at a very late point (which, admittedly, does not make ticket planning easier).

Fresh updates are marked in the schedule (see below).


August 12, 2022 update: Due to a few changes to the TikTok program, we have removed specific times for now. As soon as the final schedule comes out we will add to this post.


Update August 10, 2022: There are dates for the Meet & Greet zone in hall 8 – we’ve added influencers and times to the calendar below. Note: Dates can be changed at any time, even with short notice.


Update August 9, 2022: Due to the numerous inquiries, here is an overview of the exhibition stands where the concentration of YouTubers, streamers and social media stars is likely to be:

  • Hall 6 / Event Hall on Friday (“AMD Gaming Show”)
  • Hall 7: TIK Tok
  • Hall 8: Signing area (autograph sessions plus meetings and greetings)
  • Hall 8, outdoor area (P8): Red Bull Creator Club
  • Hall 10.1: hawk

The dates for the signing area will be added immediately as soon as the final dates are available.


Message of August 8, 2022: After two completely digital editions of Gamescom, the video game event is taking place again on-site at the Cologne exhibition center. Events also return to the cathedral city at the same time as many famous game developers – albeit often within a slightly more compact framework than in 2019. Some companies are also not official Gamescom partners and instead host their own Gamescom environmental events, be it in restaurants, bars, or hotels.

Below is an initial list of confirmed dates. The table will be updated in the coming days and weeks bright grow.

This applies in particular to the instances of influencers: If you’re speculating on a selfie or signature from your favorite YouTuber or streamer, you still need to be patient. Experience shows that specific places and times are set in stone only a few days before the start of the fair.

Please note that this time Gamescom tickets are only available online in advance – there will be no cashier.

The calendar below is constantly expanded and updated – reserved bugs and short term changes. We are always grateful for tips and hints via e-mail.
