EPIC36 - Date Change

EPIC36 moves one week later to 7-10 July

We hate to do this, but...

Over the last couple of weeks, it has become apparent that the tiny town of Kettering had literally no hotel rooms available over the EPIC36 weekend. 

It seems that even though it's a good distance from Silverstone, the impact of the F1 GP spreads as far as Kettering which meant that anyone trying to book tickets from this point would not have been able to get accommodation in town and while some people are happy to camp, or sleep on the floor, we know from previous events that some 70%+ stay off site, so it left us with no choice other than to cancel the event, or move it.

More EPIC.LAN for 2022

For the first time in our history, we had over 12 months without any events, so 2022 is time to make up for that with three new events added to our calendar, moving a few experiments from 2021 in to the permanent lineup for EPIC.LAN this year. 

We're pleased to introduce a continuation of our dedicated Tabletop events with two more weekenders showcase all things tabletop as well as a completely new event,  EPIC.LUX, which probably needs a better name, but we're rolling with it for now.

After a successful year of online and offline gaming events in 2021, EPIC.LAN and Intel have renewed their partnership for 2022, continuing to focus on community gaming and grassroots esports.  

During 2021, EPIC.LAN delivered a regular series of online events before starting a gradual and careful return to the LAN hall with its flagship event EPIC34 in October which saw a near-normal event at its regular home of Kettering Conference Centre in the UK.

In 2021, EPIC.LAN continued to put on a range of events for online, offline and somewhere in between as the safe and careful journey back to the LAN hall continued. October 2021 saw EPIC34 return to its offline roots in an event that was as close to normal as possible in the current times and Overclockers UK was right there at the heart of it supporting the event and community.

Following on from the successful partnership that has been running since 2020, EPIC.LAN is pleased to announce that Overclockers UK will be back again for 2022 as a headline partner along with luxury gaming chair brand, noblechairs, as official chair partner for the events.

Happy Christmas from EPIC.LAN

I recently wrote about how things had been going for the business side of EPIC.LAN and explained how we've started the painful process of rebuilding after almost losing everything in 2020 due to all of our private work disappearing in 48h at the start of the pandemic. 

Obviously finances keep a business going on paper and believe it or not our LAN events are not run to make a profit, most LANs only just break even (EPIC34 did not even do that with all the extra COVID-related costs) so that external work is really important to cover our community LAN event costs. But it's really the people and community that keep us motivated to do what we do as EPIC.LAN and that's why I wanted to finish 2021 with the most important thank you...

EPIC34 - Sold Out

We saw a record breaking number of tickets in the last 48h, clearly everyone wants LAN back! 

But that does mean EPIC34 is now sold out. And when we say sold out, we really do mean that, not that we're going to suddenly find a few hundred more tickets that we've been hiding away. 

As tempting as it is to open up more rooms and squeeze more rows in, we have to remember that COVID is still a thing, we have to keep a safe venue capacity, plus there is already limited car parking space at the venue due to the COVID testing site occupying a section of the car park, so the limit we've announced is really the limit. 

The only way to get a ticket now is through our waiting list, if people choose to cancel their tickets.

EPIC34 Seating Plan

We've been waiting for some final capacity and layout confirmations and now we are in a position to open the EPIC34 seating plan. 

We are opening this much closer to the event than we would normally so please read on to find out exactly how things will work.

EPIC34 1st August Update

After such a long time without large LAN events, we all know the first one back will be a little different. But throughout the pandemic we've been keeping a close eye on the guidance keeping in touch with Kettering Conference Centre throughout ready for our first event back. 

Officially the centre is closed until 2022 (apart from the gym and sports facilities) so the venue is opening specially for us for EPIC34 in October. That does mean that as the centre is operating on minimal staffing there will be a number of temporary changes for this event, combined with extra COVID-safety measures.

It's Coming Home (No-not that)

Is there ever a right time to return to events? 

Who really knows, but we have to start planning positively because of the lead in time to prepare an event like EPIC.LAN, so with that in mind we're excited to launch ticket sales for EPIC34 this October, back in our Kettering Conference Centre home.
