Countdown to Doors Open:

BYOC Game & sponsored Rows

Dedicated rows

When you’re going to sit next to new people, it’s good to know something about them first. That’s why we have dedicated rows for the games you love. Think of them as themed rows based on some of the most beloved titles. And of course, you can play other games too! Our sponsors will also join in the fun to create cool themed rows with bonuses for those who book seats there.

What is this?

Do you want to sit with people who have the same passion for gaming as you?
Meet new friends?
What about a chance to win some game swag?
Maybe you need to find a new squad for your esports team?
Then the BYOC Game Rows are for you!


So what’s with these sponsored rows?
We offer our sponsor partners the opportunity to create special branded rows within the BYOC Area. LAN attendees who book seats in these rows can expect cool goodies and experience enhancements from the sponsors!

So am I stuck only playing that game in that specific game row?
Nope! you can play whatever you want, whenever you want.

We wish we could have infinite rows and infinite prizes, but unfortunately we’re limited due to space this time. Next time around will be a different story… and who knows, we might let you choose ;D

Is there a mini-history of DreamHack on this page? Of course…

Like all good LAN parties, DreamHack was founded by a couple of gamers just wanting to get together and game with friends. DreamHack was founded in November 1994 by Kenny “K2-ICE” Eklund and Martin “DH_Admin” Öjes. They rented the local school cafeteria in the small city Malung and invited their computer enthusiast friends to join them for a weekend of coding and hacking. The event attracted 40 people and had no Internet connection.
Today, DreamHack is the world’s largest digital festival. DreamHack’s core and origin is the LAN party, with the two major festivals in Sweden – DreamHack Summer in June and DreamHack Winter in November. In 2007 DreamHack was awarded with a “Guinness World Record of no of computers in a LAN” with 10,455 connected devices in the network. At DreamHack Winter 2015, the network had 23,425 unique devices in the network, the largest DreamHack Network and LAN ever built!
