1) When I'll know when the event will take place, then I might think about it.


Wrong?


Shall it be


2) When I know when the event takes place, I might think about it.


No need for 'will' and 'then'?

Thank you very much!

2) is perfectly correct, but - for stylistic reasons - I would probably express it as "Once I know when the event takes place, then I might think about it". That avoids using two "whens", and it also emphasises the "then" [and not until then] part of the message.
