Meet the Insomnia Event Crew!
Here at our Insomnia we have an amazing volunteer crew who help us to make the events happen. We are grateful for all of their support, many of whom take time out from their day to day jobs to come and help us make our events as awesome as they are.

Below are each of our teams at our insomnia events, and the role they each play in putting the Insomnia Festival together!
Our White Shirt team are those you’re likely to meet first at an event, and also those you’ll probably see most of during the event! They are responsible for checking everyone in at the start of the event, ensuring a smooth entry for you all into the event. They’re also responsible for staffing our Tuck Shop & raffle, and generally making sure the other teams are looked after.
The Yellow Shirt team will be the first port of call should any of you have problems with our network or power at the events. They’re there to make sure you’re always able to stay connected on our network, and any of the general purpose tasks we have at our events.
The Red Shirt team are responsible for managing our world class tournament at our events. These are the guys who make everything happen with regard to tournaments regarding scheduling of matches, rules, assisting any competitors etc.
These are the guys you hope you’ll never need to see; our networking team is responsible for maintaining the core internal network, fixing any networking problems on our side of the system, and otherwise keeping the event online and working correctly.
Minecraft Zone Team
The Minecraft Zone at Insomnia has a lot of elements that require supervision; queue management, the panel room, the meet and greets, and the Minecraft tournaments all require helpful hands to provide the best Minecraft-focused experience possible. A perfect role for parents of Minecraft-obsessed kids looking to help out at the event. See here for more information.
The Exhibition Hall at Insomnia has tons of activity areas where people can play games, enter free to play tournaments and more. Each of these areas requires help to setup and run correctly, keeping the Expo running as smoothly as possible throughout the event. See here for more information.
The content team help cover the event in terms of visual and written content. The content team contains photographers, videographers, and writers, who together provide all of our Multiplay coverage of Insomnia events.
The stage team are usually found hiding in the broadcast booth, ensuring everything is running smoothly with the delivery of our live finals stage, from lighting, to sound, to broadcast, to editing and a bit of everything in between! They also ensure that all the players are present when required for their finals, and help us to produce top notch quality content from our Stage.
What it means to be a Volunteer
The volunteers at our event literally make the event happen and without them we wouldn’t have anything like what we have today. We look after our volunteers during and after the events, rewarding them for all of their hard work. Make no mistake however, being a volunteer at one of our shows is definitely hard work! We work hard and we play hard!
