Insomnia plans to host more events later in 2019, including Insomnia65 in August, an event in Dublin in November, and events in Egypt and Dubai.
The Insomnia Gaming Festival began in 1999 and continues to be the biggest LAN (Local Area Network) event in the UK. Created by Player1 Events, the event celebrates video games, as well as the larger community and the latest technology.
