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.



For the first time since IEM in 2019, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is making a return to the big stage in Australia, as some of the best teams from around the region, and the world, compete in ESL Challenger #50
