Share This Article:
The UK's largest gaming festival, Insomnia60, is back for 2017 with its most star-studded line up yet. The festival will run over the Easter bank holiday weekend (14-17th April) at the NEC in Birmingham. Huge YouTube superstars Yogscast, Syndicate and MumboJumbo will be attending the festival, meeting fans and enjoying the events and gaming features available. For the first time in Insomnia's 17-year history, talent will join music stars to headline the gaming festival, adding to the truly spectacular experience of the gaming festival as a great day out. On the Saturday evening (16th) there will be music from Disciples, Years and Years, Wretch 32, Chase and Status and Jaguar Skills. However, Insomnia’s music experience doesn’t stop there with the new instalment of the Rock Zone - a completely new area to explore, including the Vinyl Village, Rock Art and Making Music features, along with general retail. But, that’s not all! For the first time, Insomnia will host an orchestral concert in tribute to The Legend of Zelda. Titled ‘The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses’, the concert will feature a complete symphony orchestra performing over 30 years' worth of music from The Legend of Zelda franchise. A perfect event for fans, this follows the release of Nintendo’s biggest title release ever in Europe: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, playable on the Wii U and the new Nintendo Switch. Along with the concert, Insomnia also introduces audiences to the new Nintendo Zone. Nintendo UK will be hosting a number of The Legend of Zelda themed events on Sunday 16th on the Insomnia Expo stage. This will include The Legend of Zelda cosplay masquerade. Some of the biggest titles for the new Nintendo Switch console will be playable throughout the show in the Nintendo Zone, including Arms, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and of course The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
