Our LAN history

DreamHack has become a whole gaming lifestyle festival but our roots are in the LAN party. We’ve hosted large-scale LAN parties since 1994 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.

Through the years, LAN has not changed at its core. We might have upgraded to flat screen monitors and NFC admission badges instead of print-out tickets, but take a look at the pictures from 2001 to 2020 and you’ll notice the similarities – Gamers just want to have fun.
