Multiplay, organiser of the UK’s largest gaming festivals, has today announced that Minecraft will once again feature at its next event, Insomnia51, as part of the Minecraft Zone.
Following on from last summer’s Minecraft Expo at Insomnia49, Multiplay is bringing back the features that entertained Minecraft fans of all ages from across the country and beyond. The Minecraft Zone will offer free-to-enter tournaments for the most popular gametypes, panel talks and presentations in the dedicated 650 seat auditorium, with an exhibition featuring examples from the best and brightest of the community, as well as the chance to purchase official Minecraft merchandise from J!nx.
Also returning this event is a packed-out roster of Minecraft-focused Special Guests who will be meeting fans in our Meet & Greet area, as well as joining in with panel talks in the auditorium, and participating in Festival Stage shows. The line-up so far includes: FyreUK, BeBopVox, AntVenom, Element Animation, The Diamond Minecart, Caveman Films, The Noxcrew, MusicByPedro, Chucklefish, Gizzy Gazza, Blue Monkey, Weed Lion, SoTotallyToby, Buycraft and Codename_B, with more to be announced.
“Insomnia is growing even bigger with each passing event. We’re seeing more gamers joining in, more special guests to meet and greet, and more activities for the whole family to enjoy,” said Craig Fletcher, Founder & CEO of Multiplay. “We’re taking the fun and excitement of our Minecraft activity last summer and making it even better. We can’t wait to show you the Minecraft Zone at Insomnia51.”
Insomnia51 takes place at the Ricoh Arena over Easter Bank Holiday weekend, Friday, April 18th to Monday, April 21st 2014.
