Rounding out each day, head over to the Expo stage to get the last of that energy out with Just Dance Madness!


Formerly Britical Role, our band of (brave?) adventurers are heading to #i69 to bring a live D&D show that you’ll never forget. Chaos is guaranteed, betrayal is a possibility and adventure is all but certain. Head to the Expo Stage at Insomnia to catch an unmissable experience and maybe even a big fluffy d20… You don’t need +3 intelligence to know you won’t want to miss this!

Featuring Josh Strife-Hayes, Rage Darling, BillieTrixx and Callum Upton
