Another ‘fest’ will take place at August’s Insomnia58 event, organiser Multiplay has announced.
League Fest will take over a 6,500 square metre hall at Birmingham’s NEC and run from August 26th to 29th.
The festival will feature live tournaments featuring former pro players, merchandise, cosplay and ‘special guests’. Tickets will start from £30.
It is the second ‘Fest’ to be bolted onto the side of Insomnia, the other being consumer expo GAMEFest.
“I’m expecting more than ten thousand champions to beat a path to Insomnia this August, swelling our overall attendance to more than 100,000 at the NEC,” said Multiplay CEO Craig Fletcher.
“League fans have always been a huge part of Insomnia, from the prize tournament to the evening events. This year we’re raising the bar to stage one of Europe’s largest celebrations of the world’s most played game.”
