Day Tickets

Your whistle-stop tour of the Insomnia Gaming Festival! Get your hands on the latest games, catch a show or check out some top-tier exhibitors. Your day ticket grants you access to the entire show (except for the BYOC hall) but be careful! If you don’t plan ahead you might miss out on some of the stuff to see and do.

Priority Day Tickets

If you’re looking for a little more time at Insomnia, why not upgrade to Priority? Priority Day Tickets will grant you half an hour early access into the show before everyone else so you can get to the games you want to play and beat the queues! Not only this, but you also get fast-pass queueing for the meet & greets and our VR zone as well as priority seating for our stage shows.

Weekend Ticket

3 days of non-stop gaming! Your weekend Insomnia ticket grants you access to all 3 days of the show including all the stage shows, meet & greets, interactive zones and everything at the event! With access to all 3 days of Insomnia, this means you won’t miss any of the amazing stuff that we’ll have ready for you to enjoy! You won’t miss a thing and you’ll get a pretty sweet fabric wristband too!

Priority Weekend Tickets

The ultimate Insomnia Gaming Festival Experience! Everything included in the weekend ticket plus amazing extras such as; half an hour early entry into the show so you can get straight into the action before anyone else, priority queueing so you won’t have to stand in line as long to meet your favourite creators or play the latest VR experiences, and priority seating to get nearer to the action on our main stage.

Camping for the weekend? Priority weekend tickets also grant you access to our indoor camping hall on Thursday night so you don’t have to worry about getting to the show on time Friday morning!

With the priority weekend Insomnia ticket, you can make sure you get to experience everything the show has to offer with as little time as possible wasted waiting around!

*Camping access requires a camping ticket, sold separately.
