Insomnia51 is officially our biggest ever spring Insomnia Gaming Festival

It's official. Insomnia51, our first event at the Ricoh Arena, has become our biggest ever spring Insomnia event, with an unprecedented 20,000 footfall across the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

Thousands of gamers from a variety of backgrounds gathered to enjoy a schedule packed full of engaging content, with Main Festival Stage presenting from We’ve Got Game Founders, Matt Littler and Darren Jefferies. The festival’s activities spanned the range of modern gaming culture, from high level Esports tournaments to a thriving exhibition hall including Minecraft, Indie, Tabletop Gaming, and Retro zones.  There were also panel talks in a 650-seat dedicated auditorium, and of course the UK’s biggest LAN gaming halls.

Following on from the success of Insomnia49 last summer, Insomnia51 featured appearances from special guests from across the globe. Providing fans with the chance to meet them in person, Insomnia51 enabled YouTube stars to connect with their communities through Meet & Greet sessions, panel talk sessions, and main stage shows.

As the first Insomnia Gaming Festival of 2014, Insomnia51 saw increased entries for not only Esports tournaments on PC, but also on console. As part of our pledge to help grow the console tournament scene at Insomnia events, Multiplay delivered the Console Esports Arena, an area wholly dedicated to console Esports including tournament stations, a spectating zone, and an area for press.

Last year the Insomnia Gaming Festivals hit several milestones, with both its largest ever event and it’s fiftieth outing. 2013’s rapid growth and increased attendance inspired a change of venue, and the UK’s biggest gaming festival found a new home at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena resulting in the highest attendance for an Easter event in our 17-year history.

“There is no equivalent to the Insomnia Gaming Festival in the UK. There’s no single event that combines the LAN halls, the tournaments, the exhibition, the special guests, the stage activities, all into a single weekend-long gaming-focused festival experience,” said Craig Fletcher, CEO & Founder of Multiplay. “With each passing year Insomnia grows bigger and better, in no small part due to our incredible community and the fantastic partners we work with. With our summer plans for Insomnia52, 2014 is shaping up to be an unstoppable year for Multiplay events.”


Minecraft is back at Insomnia51 - Featuring Special Guests, Panel Talks, Tournaments and more

Following on from last summer’s Minecraft Expo at Insomnia49, we're bringing back the features that entertained Minecraft fans of all ages from across the country and beyond. The Minecraft Zone will offer free-to-enter tournaments for the most popular gametypes, panel talks and presentations in the dedicated 650 seat auditorium, with an exhibition featuring examples from the best and brightest of the community, as well as the chance to purchase official Minecraft merchandise from J!nx.

Also returning this event is a packed-out roster of Special Guests who will be meeting fans in our Meet & Greet area, as well as joining in with panel talks in the auditorium, and participating in Festival Stage shows. The line-up so far includes: FyreUK, BeBopVox, AntVenom, Element Animation, The Diamond Minecart, Caveman Films, The Noxcrew, MusicByPedro, Starbound developers Chucklefish, Gizzy Gazza, Blue Monkey, Weed Lion, SoTotallyToby, Buycraft and Codename_B, with more to be announced.
