What was it like
The entire event flew like a dream with teams loving a hit at the Esports stages with full casting to our Twitch and Youtube, from everyone attending the event. We heard no complains about any part even the food was good! (let’s face it most event food tastes like cardboard with sauce). The Minecraft zone kept the younger audience entertained and the retro zone kept all those older parents busy while the kids went about building their worlds!
Our Console stage was busy as ever with a crowd wanting even more, it was our last section to close late at night because the tournaments just kept going!
Although we have to mention our biggest draw was our CSGO stage, It kept everyone on their toes. The matches were simply super with such close calls between What is Love and Unhinged right down to the wire. read more about it here on UKCSGO or watch the matches on our Youtube Channel here.
Our music fans were kept entertained with our Rock band stage blasting our music while they played their hearts out attempting to win our £50 daily prize! Some forming a bands on the day others pre-planning a team and putting on a show!
Will it return?
There is no doubt in our minds this event will be back next year bigger, better and more awesome! So stay tuned and get your tickets ASAP!
