We grew up listening to our parents – and we still do- ranting about the long hours we spent playing video games, preaching about how gaming is not going to get us anywhere. Little did they know, for came the day when gaming has become a profession that makes money.

Oh, so you’re a gamer, but not a professional gamer? No problems, you still have the chance to flaunt your skills, and win some cash. After last year’s massive success, Insomnia Egypt Gaming Festival brings another round to town, at Egypt International Exhibition Centre’s Hall One.

Taking place from the 31st of October to the 2nd of November, The E-sports tournament welcomes gamers from all backgrounds to show off, have fun, and discover new games. Whether it’s a mobile, Play Station, or even a PC game, you’ll definitely find your favourite game on the list; from FIFA 20, Fortnite, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, to Tekken, Code Vein, and many more.

Insomnia Egypt Gaming Festival also has something for all the Cosplayers out there, hosting the biggest Cosplay competition in Egypt, in which prizes are worth 55,000LE. Speaking of prizes, the festival’s total prize worth is 650,000LE.

The festival also has a variety of other activities, including a VR zone, Grip N’ Climb, an escape room, and many more. As for the tickets, a single-day ticket is for 499LE, a full-access, 3-day ticket is for 999LE, while a VIP ticket, which includes a gift box, is for 2500LE.
