GamerFest, Ireland's biggest gaming and esports festival, is returning to the RDS on October 22nd & 23rd.

The weekend celebration of gaming entertainment will include the latest games, the hottest in VR, esports action, gaming challenges, along with a host of special guests including top Twitch and YouTube creators.

This year's festivities will be sponsored by Lucozade, and some of the biggest names in the Irish gaming scene will be in attendance.

Fans of esports will witness a packed line-up of competitive action on the GamerFest Main Stage including an official partnership with Ubisoft helping facilitate the launch of the €3,000 GamerFest Rainbow Six Siege Ireland Open.

This tournament offers an incredible opportunity for Irish teams to qualify for the UK Ireland Nationals (UKIN) and ultimately earn a professional spot in the Rainbow Six Northern Premier League.

Organisers have also confirmed a partnership with Legion Collegiate Esports, Ireland’s dedicated esports series for third-level students in Ireland, which will see some of the best and brightest student esports talent in the country go head to head across a range of titles including 'Rocket League', 'Apex Legends' and 'FIFA.'

GamerFest CEO Stuart Dempsey says "like our visitors, the team behind GamerFest are gamers. Ever since our first event five years ago, we’ve kept an absolute focus on one thing – the gaming community."

"Community guides us in everything we do, ensuring we have the best games, content, special guests, and entertainment possible at all our events."

"Just like every other live event, it’s been incredibly tough not seeing our community since 2020 throughout the Covid pandemic, so we’re incredibly excited to see the anticipation for the return of GamerFest this year."

"It will be wonderful to see people physically come together and celebrate all things gaming, bringing to life all the incredible friendships and relationships that have developed online over the last number of years.”

GamerFest takes place at The RDS, Dublin this October 22nd and 23rd, with tickets on sale now at
