All the LAN parties. The main stage shenanigans. Expo booths.
Trophy lifts. Tabletop tournaments. Dodgeball games.
This will be our biggest World Tour to date.
12 festivals in 9 major cities inside 7 countries!
While we’re still amping up for DreamHack Atlanta, we’ve already started planning our US festival roster for next year…
DreamHack has become a whole gaming lifestyle festival but our roots are in the Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) LAN party. We’ve hosted large-scale LAN parties since 2001 where you can bring your own computer and game to your heart’s content over the weekend.
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.
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.
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.
