Dubai’s gaming scene is about to go up another level – as one of the world’s best-loved events is coming to the city.

Insomnia Gaming Festival has been one of the hottest tickets in the UK since its launch in 1999.

Now, it’s setting up shop in Meydan Grandstand for three days between October 17 to 19, bringing its line-up of world-class games, cutting edge virtual reality, eSports and more.

And tickets are on sale now.

There is a 30 percent early bird discount on tickets – with day tickets starting at Dhs78.75 and weekend tickets starting at Dhs210.
Insomnia Dubai is primarily not expo – it’s all about having fun and immersing yourself in games such as Fortnite, Apex, Dota 2, Battlegrounds, Call of Duty, Rainbow 6, CSGO and FIFA.

However, there will be huge gaming publishers showcasing their latest releases, the chance to pick up some great merchandise and also meet some of the industry’s biggest players.

Fans can also enjoy a drone racing competition and go back in time to play a selection of retro video games.

There’ll be a dedicated cosplay area, stage shows featuring gaming contents and interactive stage productions.

Plus, the fun doesn’t at “Game over” – players aged 21 and over can carry on the party next door at Soho Garden.

We’ll be bringing you all the latest information and updates as they unfold.
Early bird tickets from Dhs78.75 (day pass), Dhs210 (weekend pass). Oct 17-19. Meydan Grandstand, Al Meydan Road, insomniadubai.com.
