Come for one thing, stay for another.
All the LAN parties. All the main stage shenanigans. Expo booths. Trophy lifts. Tabletop tournaments. Dodgeball games.
We run and produce a variety of professional esports. Our open tournaments bring focus to rising-stars, allowing them a platform to compete in front of an audience, earn prize money, and be seen by both fans and the greater gaming community.
Our promise to you is more than just new colors and flashy warps however. In everything we do, we wanted to infuse a sense of meaning derived from our love for the gaming community. And so our manifesto was created to guide us in creating future DreamHack experiences.
We’re just as eager as you are, and we can’t wait to bring DreamHack IRL again. We’re also working on a new online experience that we hope to share with you soon.
In our first merch drop, you’ll find the basics. Hoodie, t-shirt, sweatpants. Perfect for a day of gaming, comfortable enough to see the light of day once you need refreshments, and nowadays a perfectly accepted work attire.
Now you can receive updates, surveys, and raffle invitations straight into your inbox. Choose which areas of interest you want to hear about! There will also be promo codes or per-sales exclusive to our mailing lists.
DreamHack is where our community join arms.
Around massive stages and booths made by hand.
In numbers, in spirit, and in any city brave enough to have us.
To discover where years of training can get you.
Or try something new for the very first time.
To play games that took years to create, and games we made up on the spot.
To embrace old enemies and fight new friends.
Play as hard as we can, mess about with a vengeance.
And crown the champion of everything – from Counter-Strike to cosplay to cabbage bowling
Because whether we’re first-timers or twenty-year veterans, eventually every one of us lives, breathes and sleeps DreamHack.
Some of us sleep at DreamHack.
So wherever gaming goes and however gaming grows,
this will always be the place where it all comes together.
In all our energy, creativity, glory, and absurdity.
And we will always be DreamHack.
Where the gaming community comes to life.
