BYOC LAN

DreamHack is the ultimate social experience for gamers. The ultimate way to experience a DreamHack event is to bring your gaming rig, jack into our network and game on.

BYOC GAME ROWS

Game Rows are game specific branded rows inside the BYOC area where you have a chance to meet awesome game swag, and meet new friends for that game! Do you have to play that game in that row? Of course not! 

BYOC TOURNAMENTS

Game together with your friends or find your new team on site! It is easy to sign up, a ton of fun and doesn’t cost you anything extra besides your BYOC ticket! 

BYOC LAN

THE LAN

Visitors with BYOC seats will be able to play in BYOC Tournaments, play casually with friends, meet new people and check out everything else happening at DreamHack! But most importantly, you get to game all weekend knowing you’re surrounded by awesome gamers like yourself.

THE HISTORY

Like all good LAN parties DreamHack was founded by a couple of gamers just wanting to get together and game with friends. DreamHack was founded in November 1994 by Kenny “K2-ICE” Eklund and Martin “DH_Admin” Öjes. They rented the local school cafeteria in the small city Malung and invited their computer enthusiast friends to join them for a weekend of coding and hacking, the event attracted 40 people and had no Internet connection.
 
Today DreamHack is the world’s largest digital festival. DreamHack’s core and origin is the LAN party, with the two major festivals in Sweden – DreamHack Summer in June and DreamHack Winter in November. In 2007 DreamHack was awarded with a Guinness World Record for “Guinness World Record of no of computers in a LAN” with 10,455 connected devices in the network. At DreamHack Winter 2015 the network had 23,425 unique devices in the network, the largest DreamHack Network and LAN ever built. Now it is Austin’s turn to build something bigger and better.
