Jagex Announces RuneFest At The NEC On March 1st-2nd, 2025

Additional Tickets Go On Sale Later This Summer

Jagex is delighted to confirm that RuneFest will take place at the NEC in Birmingham, United Kingdom on March 1st – March 2nd, 2025, with an additional 1,000 tickets to be made available later this summer. All existing tickets will transfer automatically, meaning RuneFest will be bigger than ever.

Any ticketholders who are unable to attend the new dates will be able to claim a full refund. Those of you who wish to claim a refund can do so at SeeTickets. As Insomnia will no longer be a part of RuneFest, there will be no access to other events at the NEC and camping is no longer available – all camping tickets purchased will be automatically refunded.

“We want to thank our fans for their patience while we found solutions to ensure RuneFest goes ahead, and we’re excited to confirm the new date in March next year,” said Meredith Ford, RuneFest Project Lead, Jagex. She continued, “RuneFest is now a standalone, independently-run event with the same ambition: bringing our wonderful community together to celebrate our games.”

Jagex would like to apologise for any disruption caused to our fans, but is pleased to be able to confirm this new date for a fantastic celebration of all things RuneScape.
