Insomnia Gaming Festival | A Celebration Of Gaming

It looks like you’ve taken a wrong tern somewhere! The LAN Party/BYOC is now here


Get your hands on the latest gaming tech! Wield lightsabers in the popular Beat Saber or cut fruit with katanas in Fruit Ninja. With Flight and racing simulators to VR, I’m sure you will want to test something out.

Book your slots at the BYOC help desk from the start of LAN.


Don’t know what to play? Let us help you with the BYOC community games schedule, come and join in the fun! Running throughout the event make sure you check the discord for the latest games on the schedule each day.


Need some time away from your PC but also want to carry on gaming? Why not stop by the BYOC Chillzone!

We have beans bags which surround PCs dedicated to run party games like Jackbox, Quiplash and more. No need to book just head over and pick a spot.

BYOC Game Servers

 We have several on-site game servers running for popular games you can join and get involved with over the event. Games like Rust, Minecraft, Factorio, and more.

Want a server started for a game you want to play during i69? Just ask us in discord, if we have it we will start one for you.

“Welcome, [Subject Name Here], to the Insomnia Science iHunt-aided Enrichment Center. In your teams of up to four [Subject Species Here] participants you must demonstrate your problem solving skills against a series of puzzles, riddles and miscellaneous challenges. For science. And prizes. But mostly science.”

Better get ready! The iHunt is a team-based puzzle-solving challenge that will pit you against fellow gamers in a competition to solve puzzles at your computer and around the venue. The iHunt takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at midday, and is open to all BYOC attendees. Get your mental muscles flexing, this could be challenging!


The Free to play area is coming back to insomnia69 BYOC. A space for you to take part in community activity or just chill with your friends and play games from your own account or from the selection of games available.

The Free to Play area will include high-end gaming PCs, Xbox series X and PS5 consoles.

Coming as a BYOC guest on a day or weekend ticket? Take advantage of the Free to play area and game with your friends in the LAN.


Want more raffle tickets? Why not try your hand at achievement hunting? We have a selection of achievements you can gain, either through taking part in the scheduled activity, or by participating in challenges set on our game servers.

Land a helo on the cargo ship in Rust or launch the rocket in factorio, there are lots of achievements to chase and raffle tickets to be won! Good luck hunter!


The BYOC Raffle returns once more. Our way of saying thank you to the BYOC community for just being awesome. With the help of our long-standing partners, we have a large selection of cool prizes up for grabs, including a Next Game Gaming PC from CCL Online.

All you need to do to take part is to have fun! Raffle tickets are collected for taking part in various BYOC activities during the event, from esports tournaments to scheduled social games and even the pub quiz, so make sure you take advantage and don’t miss your chase to walk away with cool stuff!



Ever fancy some time away from your screen? Well the BYOC social games area is just what you need, with our selection of card and board games just grab some friends, a table and a game and relax with some good old-fashioned analogue gaming!

No need to book to just pick up a game and play however RPG sessions will need to be booked in advance, check out the helpdesk or discord for more information.


You might be a well-practised grognard or the newest of newbies wondering what all the buzz is about from Stranger Things and the like but either way, you’re more than welcome to come and play RPGs in the Social Games Area.

With 3 experienced professional GMs, 51 sessions ranging from 30-minute dumb fun to 3-hour epics, and offering more than 20 different systems (some being played in public for the first time) there’s likely something you’ll find cool to book into.

Please note that seats at the games are limited and need to be pre-booked.


The LAN is broken and doors open in one hour! Our network team is nowhere to be found, so it’s up to you to fix the internet before the event ends up a disaster. Work together as a crew of two to four friends to search the room for clues and solve puzzles. Break into the calamitously messy server room, unpick its mysteries, and save the day!
