DUBAI – Gaming and cosplay aficionados flocked to Meydan Grandstand for the three-day gaming extravaganza Insomnia Dubai.
The UK’s largest gaming festival was brought to Dubai for the first time, drawing in crowds and gaming superstars, including The Sidemen, Fasoleyya and Tommy Tallarico from October 17 to 19.
The gaming fest was opened by Sheikh Mansour bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and featured more than 100 gaming platforms.
