Zedtown: State Of Emergency Is A Quarantine-Themed Zombie Bloodbath

Last year, we blasted zombies to bits in a Wild West themed outbreak.

This time around, it's the modern day, and the government's desperate attempt to contain the rapidly spreading ZTX virus means the Ministry for Disease Control will be setting up quarantine zones in both Melbourne and Sydney.

Here's when Zedtown: State Of Emergency will run, and when you can buy tickets...

Zedtown's big event for 2017, State of Emergency will run on Saturday 24 June at the Melbourne Showgrounds, with the day starting off at 11am.

In Sydney, State of Emergency will run on Saturday 8 July at Sydney Showgrounds, also starting off at 11am.

Through Eventopia, pre-sale tickets will be available from Wednesday 19 April (that's tomorrow!) at 9AM. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday 21 April from 9AM.

We're just tracking down exactly what you need to do to get into the pre-sale, so stay tuned.

From Zedtown:

The Nation is in a State of Emergency. The ZTX Virus is rampaging across the nation, infecting city after city. In desperation, the Government - its ranks already decimated by the virus’ arrival in Canberra - have enacted Agenda 12, granting emergency powers to the newly created Ministry for Disease Control (MDC).

Minister August Reyn, in a hastily arranged press conference in an undisclosed location: “Under new emergency powers, the Ministry of Disease Control (MDC) has issued an evacuation of all major cities across Australia. All able members of the public must report to Quarantine Zone.

"Resistance from victims of the ZTX virus is expected, so gear yourself with NERF blasters and prepare for the worst. Due to overwhelmed government resources, there are limited places available in the Quarantine Zones. Apply for your ticket to freedom and await further instruction."

Melbourne Showgrounds are Quarantine Zone 5

Sydney Showground are Quarantine Zone 6

“If you are displaying symptoms of the virus, please remain inside your residence and do not attempt to access the Quarantine Zones. Be alert.

“We are the government and we are here to help you.”

We'll be at both Zedtown events in Sydney and Melbourne, with Nerf blasters at the ready. If you see us, say hi!
