We miss our community so much and we wanted to share our plans for 2021 with you. The direction for this year sees the majority of DreamHack esports competitions scheduled to be played in a studio setting without a live audience. More live-audience competitions and in-person DreamHack festivals will be following in late 2021, pending local regulation and guidelines.

The calendar will be dependent on the latest health guidance in light of the ongoing global pandemic, with our top priority being the safety and well-being of all personnel, players and attendees involved.


We hope to see you at DreamHack Atlanta and DreamHack Winter towards the end of the year. This also means that DreamHack Summer and Dallas will be postponed to 2022. In the meantime, we're currently working on an exciting new online experience that we hope to share with you shortly!


We will continue to run broadcasts throughout the year and provide hours of esports action across multiple game titles, including:

CS:GO - Kicking off with the DreamHack Open in January, and will run through a packed schedule of EPT Masters and EPT Challenger dates throughout the year.

DOTA 2 - The official Dota Pro Circuit is already underway with DreamLeague covering Europe, and ESL One covering the CIS region.

StarCraft® II - The circuit tour will kick off with DreamHack StarCraft® II Masters in May 2021, and conclude at IEM Katowice in February 2022

Warcraft® III - The circuit will start with DreamHack Warcraft® III Open in May 2021, and culminate with DreamHack Warcraft® III Championship in December.


When will DreamHack Dallas take place?

DreamHack Dallas will now take place in 2022. We are currently finalizing dates and look forward to sharing them with you soon.

Does this mean there will be two DreamHack Dallas events next year?
Will the event on the new dates be exactly the same as planned?
I’m an exhibitor, how does this affect me?
