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! Not only may we add more rows along the way, but there could be relevant game content exclusive to the festival, themed contests, and even swag complimenting the theme. Stay tuned!

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.
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!
