Thanks to the huge success of last year’s RuneFest, we are proud to announce that we’re back with RuneFest 2011! And in celebration of 10 years of RuneScape, this year's RuneFest will be bigger and better!
RuneFest 2011 will also be held over two days allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the experience and live RuneScape for a whole weekend. And for a truly memorable event, we’ve secured a stunning three floor venue in the heart of London overlooking the River Thames.
Each floor will be themed and feature an array of entertainment guaranteed to satisfy even the most ardent RuneScape fan. There are more new features than you can wave a bronze dagger at as well as some of last year’s favourites: the Insider Sessions and the Golden Gnome Video Awards. The Gaming Area is also back and is bigger and better than ever with events galore, giveaways, more opportunities to play and slay the RuneScape team. This year, we’ve gone all out on some pretty special exclusive content for all RuneFest attendees.
If all of that wasn’t enough, there’s a Halloween after party! Inspired by last year’s late night shenanigans, we’re holding an exclusive after party featuring games, ghouls, live bands, DJs and a special one-off community mash-up among the evening’s entertainment.
With an ever-expanding schedule of fantastic activities and events, you’ll need to keep your ears to the ground and your eyes on www.runefest.com to stay up to date with the latest announcements. You can also register for emails updates to get all the RuneFest news sent directly to your inbox!
RuneFest 2011 will take place over the weekend of Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October 2011 at Old Billingsgate, Central London, UK. Tickets go on sale from Monday June 27 2011 and are £59 for a one-day pass, and £99 for the weekend.
The Halloween after party costs £49 and is open exclusively to RuneFest attendees. Tickets are limited so if you want to be there, you’ll need to get in quick!
If you’re looking for the ultimate experience and don’t want to miss a moment of RuneFest then there are a number of VIP tickets available. VIP tickets give you a truly individual weekend with priority seating for all presentations, private insider sessions with senior developers, signed concept art and a private J-Mod staffed area with your own VIP bar. You get all that, guaranteed access to the Halloween after party plus a few surprises we’re still keeping under our hats for now for £179.
We will be unveiling lots of exciting features over the coming weeks before tickets go on sale and will be announcing the first competition – the Golden Gnome Video Awards – next week, including news about this year’s categories and some very exciting prizes. In the meantime, you can start planning your RuneFest on the dedicated forums.
