Listen up gamers! This could quite possibly be the happiest news you'll hear this year. UK’s longest running eSports and gaming festival is going to be Dubai’s biggest gaming festival ever and we can’t contain our excitement.

Insomnia Gaming Festival started in the UK in 1999 and its hype has only increased over the years. In 2019, Insomnia will be in Dubai for an entire weekend, October 17 to October 19.

Insomnia Dubai’s tickets are finally on sale and are available at special early-bird prices. Tickets for one day are for Dhs78.75 per head, and tickets for the entire weekend are for Dhs210.

Insomnia Dubai is not an expo. It’s an entire festival and probably of the best kind if you love gaming. It’s all about having fun and vanishing in the world of various games such as Fortnite, PUBG, Dota 2, Call of Duty, and FIFA.

There will be a number of other events taking place such as cosplay competitions, drone racing competitions, retro video games, and even a chance to play gaming publishers’ latest releases.

The three-day extravaganza will take place at Meydan Grandstand Conference Hall.

And the fun doesn’t end there! There’s also an after party for those above the age of 21 which will take place at Meydan’s Soho Garden DXB, with a list of headliners and other entertainment.

Tickets available on and at Dhs78.75 for one day, and Dhs210 for the entire weekend.
