Hours after Insomnia 48 finishes, and Insomnia 49 tickets are out! Multiplay have announced that they will be giving earlier bird discounts at the rate of 30% off for 1 week only. This means the cost will be a fantastic low of £64.40! During this time there are unlimited tickets available BUT the discount will end on 16:00 on 2nd April – after this time tickets will still be available but will cost more. We anticipate a further discount period (less discount!) but don’t hold your breath. Go grab your tickets here. If you want EAS (Early Arrival Service), don’t forget to budget for it too.
As with Insomnia 43 and Insomnia 46, we are looking to rent a Clanbox from Multiplay – Clanboxes are just like sitting in the main hall – you have a network connection, power sockets, a seat and a desk. There’s one difference though – Clanboxes are private rooms for members of the same clan/community. There’s loads more information on Clanboxes over here. We don’t know the exact costs of Clanboxes yet, or the total number we can take, but MPUK and UKCS will be working together to accommodate all players who have committed to join us at i49. We’ll let you know exact costs as and when we know for sure.
For now, what we need from you is your BYOC booking reference ID (sent to your email address when booking tickets) and a valid email address for you sent to either Xerxes or Unspecified. We will then add your name on the forum and (if necessary) register you an account on the minisite along with adding you to the groups needed. At this point we’ll be assuming you are joining us in the Clanbox, however if you don’t pay the additional costs in a reasonable time then we will fill your slot with a paying player.
Hotels for i49 are going FAST! Make sure that you have booked yours to avoid disappointment! Full accommodation details can be found here. There is Uni accommodation in addition to the hotels and there is always a bunch of UKCS people camping too for those that want to form a mini tent city – details will be on the forums closer to the time. There is also the possibility of indoor sleeping at i49, although this has not been confirmed by Multiplay.
