TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION

Most DreamHack visitors who attend with their own PC or consoles stays in the sleeping areas that DreamHack provides. DreamHack offers two sleeping halls; Racket Centrum (just outside Elmia) and Hall A inside the venue. The areas are separated from the festival halls and guarded around the clock by DreamHack hosts. If you do not wish to stay in the sleeping areas there are also several hotels nearby. On this page you can find useful links and information.

Sleeping halls


DreamHack offers two sleeping halls; Hall A inside the venue and Racketcentrum (just outside Elmia).

Make sure to bring your own sleeping gear; sleeping bags, blankets, cushion, mattresses or air mattress. It is also recommended to use a blanket beneath the air mattress.

Please note: It will it will be difficult to keep your sleeping gear safe in these areas as thousands of others have access to the area and it is impossible for us to monitor each participant’s belongings. We would recommend not bringing expensive sleeping gear incase of a potential thief. On top of that, make sure to tag your things clearly, so they become less interesting to potential thieves!

  • Checklist for accommodation in the sleeping area:
  • Sleeping mat or inflatable air mattress
  • Blanket or sleeping bag
  • Pillow
  • Flashlight

The sleeping areas at DreamHack are included if you have a BYOC ticket or a 3 Day Event Pass. When you’ve finished sleeping, remove your equipment from the sleeping halls to make room for others!
