PLAY Expo Main Stage Info

Main stage info revealed! Look at this incredible lineup!

Powered by WiFi Wars and GamerDisco and hosted by Steve McNeil (@stevemcneil), who you may recognise from Dara O’Briain’s Go 8-Bit, WiFi Wars or GINX, Chris Slight (@chrisslight), from Sky News, CNBC and GINX, and powered by “King Rob” Segebeer (@robsedgebeer) from WiFi Wars and Go 8-Bit. The main stage will provide interactive and informative entertainment for attendees of all ages.

An incredible interactive addition is being made to the Main Stage at PLAY Expo this year – WiFi Wars will be present all weekend! WiFi Wars will have two slots each day on the stage, so if you miss one, you will have another opportunity to catch them later in the day. Recently breaking the world record for most people playing a single game of Pong, WiFi Wars will be sure to get the audience involved in some amazing multiplayer content.

If you have questions for Steve or Rob about WiFi Wars or Go 8-Bit tweet them to @replayeventswith the hashtag #WiFiPLAY and we will compile questions on our site in the week leading up to the event.

Furthermore, GamerDisco will also be closing the stage on each day. Off the back of announcing their upcoming “History of Gaming” AV tour, with the incredible DJ Yoda, long term gaming event aficianados GamerDisco will be joining us for a second year running too, with MC Nicky Biscuit and DJ Jet Set Rory (@rorysteele) keeping you all entertained with spot prizes, audience tournaments and their trademark mix of awesome music to game to!

To coincide with the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Tomb Raider, we are delighted to host a panel dedicated to the franchise. With guests including Ian Livingstone, Jeremy Heath-Smith, Richard Morton, Gavin Rummery and more, all discussing untold stories from the development of the series.
