What is EGX Rezzed?

What isn't EGX Rezzed. Well it isn't a horse. It is, in fact, a video games event brought to you by the team behind EGX London (formerly Eurogamer Expo). The show floor will be rammed with all manner of playable games and other game related features and attractions. In previous years the event has had a distinctly PC & indie game flavour, however, for 2014 the show has been expanded to include next gen consoles.

What forms of ID do you accept?

We're able to accept any form of photo ID that features your date of birth; passports, driving licenses etc. If you don't fancy bringing your ID a photocopy is acceptable. If you don't have any suitable ID we recommend applying for a citizen card.

Where's my ticket?

We operate an an e-ticket system. Once you've paid for your ticket you should receive an email containing your ticket almost immediately. Please print out this ticket and bring it with you. It'll be exchanged at the registration desk for a wristband. If you've lost your e-ticket, use the form at the top of this page to have it resent. Remember to check your junk mail folder!

I don't have access to a printer, now what?

Write down your ticket number (the long number below the barcode on your e-ticket) and bring it with you. Give the number to the fine people working on the registration desk and they'll locate your ticket on our system. We can also scan tickets from most smartphones.

I have a normal ticket but I'd like to upgrade to a Yogscast ticket, can you help?

No problem! Send us an email and, as long as there are Yogscast tickets available, we'll be happy to upgrade you. Please note, we'll charge you the difference in cost which will come to £28, assuming you're upgrading from a day ticket.

I bought a ticket but now I can't attend. Can I have a refund?

Alas, we aren't able to offer refunds, however, tickets are transferable so feel free to give your ticket to a friend. If you'd like to change the day of your ticket please contact us and we should be able to swap it. Bear in mind that we won't be able to switch the day of a ticket to a day that has sold out.

I just bought a ticket or wristband on eBay / Gumtree / some dude in a pub...

If you purchased your ticket directly from our website you won't have a problem, however, beware! Tickets bought via third parties aren't guaranteed to be valid! Every barcode is unique, if you arrive at our registration desk and the barcode has already been scanned you will be turned away. Never purchase a wristband, it's almost certainly a fake.
