Visitor Tickets: Day Pass 

Visitor tickets (1-day pass or 3-day pass) are available for DreamHack Montreal. Day passes cost $35 if you buy via DreamHack’s online ticket portal or at the entrance itself. The day pass is valid between 10:00am and 12:00am midnight. A 3-day pass is valid for entry throughout the event, but does not include a computer seat (this requires a BYOC ticket) which is available for purchase, both via our online ticket portal and at the entrance of the venue (if any seats remain). Additional information regarding tickets can be found here.

Inform Your Kids

When children attend LAN events, it is common for them to be sloppy with hygiene, sleep, and food. We therefore ask you as parents to inform your children about consequences this might have. Because it can get hot and dry in the halls, it is also important to stay well hydrated, drinking lots of water rather than only soft drinks. They will feel better if they avoid liquids with sugar or caffeine. DreamHack works each year to improve the supply of food so that everyone can find a variety of dishes available at a reasonable price. It is also important to sleep properly. Two hours per night is not enough for the body to stay healthy. 

Remind your child to bring medication and documentation to carry with them if a serious situation arises, including the contact details of a legal guardian. A good tip is to add a number for a contact person in your child’s mobile phone that can help with medical decisions in case of an emergency. This should be highlighted in the phone’s contact list with the name of the contact beginning with the letters ICE (short for In Case of Emergency). For example, the home number could be called “ICE Mom”. This makes it easy for healthcare professionals to quickly find the best contact. This system is used in many countries around the world and is an effective tool that is completely free!


DreamHack is an event were incidents rarely happen. We have a zero tolerance on drugs, and strive for a friendly environment. A local security company will have staff at the venue 24 hours a day. DreamHack collaborates with emergency services and the venue to create a safe event as humanly possible. DreamHack has its own security officers who work with preventive security, and helps participants with security issues. In an emergency situation, our staff is trained to immediately call appropriate police, fire department and ambulance services.
