The Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest is a major event for fans of Square Enix's long-running MMORPG. The global event takes place across three different regions for the 2023-2024 period, and this year marks the fifth major event of its kind. Three major cities are hosting the Fan Festival: Las Vegas, which took place in July 2023; London, which takes place in October 2023; and Tokyo, which will be held in January 2024.
In Las Vegas, we received the announcement of Final Fantasy 14's next expansion: Dawntrail. Now, with London's Fan Fest fast-approaching, fans can look forward to plenty more announcements, reveals, panels and more. The good news is that even if you can't make it to Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest London in person, you'll be able to watch along with the action thanks to streams of all the stage events directly from the venue. Below, we'll go over how and where to watch along with the streams, what's happening during the Fan Fest, and more.

THE PRIMALS Live in Concert
Will The Final Fantasy 14 Fan Festival London Concert Performances Be Streamed?
While nearly every stage and panel from Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest London 2023 will be streamed via YouTube and Twitch, the concert performances are the one exception. Sadly, both Keiko's and THE PRIMALS' live performances will not be streamed, meaning those not attending in person will sadly miss out on this one.
