With the Swedish Police Authority’s decision to ban all bags at major events in the country, a lot of you are wondering how it impacts DreamHack Winter. We are in active dialogue with the relevant authorities, and when we have an update we will make sure to share that with you. Regardless of the regulatory impact, we are revisiting our security plan, which is developed with external security consultants, to ensure maximum festival safety.

The DreamHack Winter 2023 LAN is better than ever before, this year we aim to bring you the best possible experience as a LAN attendee! Taking into account the feedback we have received from all of you, we updated the setup for our LAN halls and shifted around what you get when you purchase a spot at our iconic LAN! 🖥🖱⌨

The tiers of LAN
With the changes to LAN for each and everyone present we also changed our tiers for the LAN introducing a new Legendary tier for the hardcore fans who want the best experience possible, of course we are still running the Premium tier for anyone who wants just that little more. 🤩

Alongside the Legendary and Premium tiers we created a new tier; Quiet LAN, replacing the 20+ LAN, it’s an area best suited for the LAN participants who enjoy a quieter experience while still being part of the experience they have come to know and love or they are yet to discover.

Find the full details on the tiers of LAN over at our webpage for more information on each tier!

Movie Night
This year we are bringing you a LAN Movie Night! On Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will be watching movies where everyone from LAN is welcome to come view some great movies together! 🎬

There will be free popcorn for anyone who joins us for these movies and the exact times for the movie night will be communicated through the DreamHack Discord to all LAN Attendees as we will aim to start showing the movies when everything else on the floor has concluded. 🍿

Alongside the tournaments you are used to seeing at our LANs, we are also bringing something new! Weekend Ladders! 😵
