Tickets for the huge Insomnia Gaming Festival available today

We’ve known about Insomnia Dubai 2019 for a while now, and we’ve fittingly lost sleep over when tickets will be available. Well now we can finally get a good night’s rest.

The longest-running UK eSports and gaming festival announced that gamers can get their hands on tickets today (Sunday June 23), with early-bird prices starting at AED78.75.

You can nab your tickets by visiting www.insomniadubai.com.

The three-day extravaganza will take place from Thursday October 17 until Saturday October 19 at the Meydan Grandstand Conference Hall.

A one-day early-bird ticket is priced AED78.75, while a weekend ticket will set you back AED210. Family packs are also available, priced AED735 for the whole weekend for four.

So, what's happening at this huge festival? For eSports fans, expect a range of tournaments offering cash prizes, so prepare to test your mettle in Call of Duty with a team of four, and a one-on-one fight in Tekken 7.

It’s also been announced there will be a huge after party at Meydan’s Soho Garden DXB, with a list of headline artists and more to be announced closer to the date.

Smaller tournaments where exclusive merchandise can be won will see top players battle it out in Over-watch, League of Legends and, of course, Fortnite.

Want to dress up as your favourite gaming character? There’s no better place, as Insomnia’s signature masquerade competition will see many cosplayers dress to impress in order to win big.

There are plenty of other sections, including one dedicated to VR gameplay, a place where gamers can bring their own computers for huge LAN parties, along with drone racing challenges and a dance floor featuring live DJ sets.

While we wait, check out what else is going on in the gaming world, including all the new games at E3 2019 this year.
