Runefest - New Date Announced

Runefest - New Date Announced

We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be hosting RuneFest at the NEC in Birmingham, UK on March 1st-2nd, 2025!

We’d like to thank you for your patience whilst we worked through the difficulties we shared with you in June’s RuneFest Update.

We will now be running RuneFest as an independent event and not in conjunction with Insomnia. We are no less ambitious about delivering an excellent value event with all the stunning immersive experiences and community atmosphere you would expect.

All existing tickets will transfer automatically (meaning you don’t need to do anything) to the new dates, and we’ll be selling an additional 1000 tickets (plus any others that we refund), meaning RuneFest will be bigger than ever! We expect these new tickets to go on sale later in the summer, and you’ll be given plenty of notice to get ready for it.

Any ticketholders who are unable to make the new dates will be able to claim a full refund. While we’d still love for you to join us, we know that logistically things may not work for some of you. For those of you who wish to claim a refund please log in here, with your order reference number and one of the qualifying verifications, then select the request refund option.

Please also note that as Insomnia will no longer be a part of RuneFest, this means that camping is no longer available. All camping tickets purchased will be automatically refunded.

We’ve updated our RuneFest T&Cs to reflect the change of dates and that RuneFest will no longer be running alongside Insomnia. You can find the updated RuneFest T&Cs here.

We’ve got some tips for those of you who can no longer attend but may have already made travel or accommodation arrangements:

  • Check your bookings for refundable or flexible conditions
  • Directly contact whoever you have your bookings with to see whether they may be able to do anything additional to help
  • Consult your travel insurance terms (and contact them directly) to see whether anything regarding refunds or making changes to bookings is covered
  • Some credit card providers offer travel protection, it’s worth contacting them to see whether they can help

Lastly we’d like to again apologise for the disruption caused, we appreciate that this has impacted many of your plans, and we really do appreciate you giving us the time to make RuneFest happen.

We’ll share more information about tickets and event details as soon as we’re able. Until then – we’re really looking forward to bringing our wonderful community together again in March 2025!
