Insomnia X Resonate gaming festival announced for Scotland

The organisers of the Insomnia and Resonate gaming festivals have teamed up to host 'Insomnia X Resonate' in Scotland this summer.

Multiplay Events and QD Events have partnered to organise the event which will take place at the Glasgow SEC from July 21st to 23rd.

The news removes any doubts around whether there would be an Insomnia Scotland event this year or not, following the announcement of Insomnia Ireland.

More than 6,500 visitors attended the first Resonate festival in Scotland last year, while some 50,000 went to Insomnia60 in Birmingham earlier this month.

Organisers say that Insomnia X Resonate 'will be Scotland’s biggest gaming festival and bring together the very best of Insomnia and Resonate'.

There will be 'turn up and play esports tournaments', with more details to be revealed soon. There will also be an indie zone, retro zone, Minecraft area, VR zone and several YouTubers attending.

Insomnia X Resonate will also feature an exhibition, with companies showing off their latest products and games at the Scottish Event Campus to a potential audience of 10,000 over the three days. Scotland-based system builder Utopia Computers are set to exhibit at the event, for example.

Andy Smith, director of the Insomnia Gaming Festival, commented: "We’re delighted to be returning to Scotland, following a fantastic three days of video game celebrations in 2016, and teaming up with the Resonate team to deliver an even better event."

Fran McIntyre, director of QD Events, added: "We’ve got an incredible line-up of attractions and YouTube stars to announce in the coming weeks, set to make Insomnia X Resonate Scotland’s biggest gaming event of the year."

Tickets for a full day at Insomnia X Resonate are priced from £15 per person (plus fees).
