Returning with all the content you’ve come to love.


Bring your computer, bring your friends

Each LAN ticket at DreamHack Melbourne gets you a reserved seat for the whole weekend in a 24-hour LAN party in Rod Laver Arena, including a port on our high-speed internet connection, power outlets for your gear, and a chair. You can even bring your own chair if you want! The LAN is a secured and restricted access area: you cannot enter without a 3-Day BYOC LAN Pass Ticket. Your LAN ticket also acts as a festival pass, meaning you can go and enjoy everything the festival has to offer.

Attendees who already hold a BYOC ticket can register for the BYOC tournaments on-site or by using the button above. Registrations also available on-site.

DreamHack & LAN

DreamHack today is known as the World’s biggest gaming lifestyle festival, but our roots are in LAN parties. We’ve hosted large-scale LAN parties since 2001, where you can bring your own computer (that’s where ‘BYOC’ comes from) and game to your hearts content over the weekend. It’s definitely a big commitment to transport your entire gaming setup 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 make new friends. Everybody you meet at DreamHack Melbourne is connected with a love for gaming.
