ALREADY HAVE WEEKEND FESTIVAL OR BYOC TICKETS?

Take your Insomnia gaming festival experience to the next level with the following add-on services:

Indoor camping If you're travelling to Insomnia from afar, or simply can't bear the thought of being far from your battlestation take advantage of our weekend camping add-on. Please note, you'll need to be at least 16 years old and have either a weekend or BYOC ticket in order to camp.

Camping takes place in a designated area inside the NEC and each ticket entitles you to a pitch space of 2m x 2.5m. Your tent and camping and equipment must fit within this area, or you’ll be refused permission to pitch. No excuses, no exceptions. Sorry. You can however combine space allowance with others, for example two people can pitch a tent covering 4m x 5m.

Indoor camping opens at 9am on Friday. If you have an EAS ticket you can pitch your tent from approximately 1pm on Thursday.
