Fun fact: The word “cosplay” is short for “costume play” and refers to people who dress up as characters.

Lights, camera, action! Sort of. As fun as convention photos and the random attendee photobombs are – we know that sometimes, you want something a little cleaner to remember the five hours you spent body painting the morning before you came into our event. With this in mind, we will have a basic studio setup available in the cosplay lounge – with a solid backdrop and some softbox lights to help you capture a picture that does your work justice.

Fun fact: DreamHack set a Guinness World Record for the fastest Internet speed at an event.
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. It’s definitely a big commitment to transport your entire gaming setup, decor, and even chair over to the venue, so why do people do it? It’s a completely unique experience to spend the weekend surrounded by gamers, your chance to meet up with online friends, watch esports together, and get to know new friends. Everybody you meet at DreamHack is connected with a love for gaming.
