Lakeside Change - EPIC38

As BYOC LANs have gone on, our audience has also grown and changed over the years. LAN parties used to have a BIG LOUD ROOM with music and colour that would give the whole student-house-come-party feeling, a throwback to the times when you'd decorate the various landings of your house with network cables.

As our audience changes, we get different feedback on the level of music, involvement and general exuberance, so we're going to be doing something different for EPIC38 in the Lakeside Room.

Following the successful return of in-person events in 2022, Intel and EPIC.LAN have renewed their partnership in 2023 for the third year with a continued focus on community gaming and grassroots esports.  

2022 was another extremely successful year for the partnership. While the events world started to return to normal after COVID, EPIC.LAN continued its efforts to support and grow the UK amateur scene with Intel’s support, building on the strong foundations from previous years of working together with highlights such as the Intel Community Championship, a prize for the best all-round gamer at each EPIC.LAN event.

2022 was another challenging year for a lot of people, and the gaming industry was not immune to this. As the first year without COVID restrictions, EPIC.LAN was able to return in person for all 3 main events to its regular home of Kettering Conference Centre as well as the introducing a new dedicated tabletop gaming event and luxury gaming LAN, LUX.

EPIC36 - Waiting List

Fair Isle and Pendeen tickets for EPIC36 are now sold out, if there are gaps on the seating plan this is where people have not selected seats but the capacity for those rooms has been reached. 

We will not be adding any extra rooms in to the event at this late stage as all logistics arrangements are in place and the room bookings have to be confirmed many weeks before the event. 

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

EPIC36 - Room Shuffle

With everything still being financially tight as we come out of 2 years of restrictions, and costs of everything going up for businesses as well as homes, it's really important that we make the best use of space at the event so that we can keep the events cost effective and going strong in the future. 

So with that in mind, we've decided to condense a few rooms down where spaces are still available to bring everybody on to the same floor at the event and have everything a little closer together.

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.
