The mecca of LAN enthusiasts.
For years we’ve admired their illustrious events from afar, hoping to one day make the journey to Sweden and participate in the world’s most epic gaming extravaganza.
DreamHack started in November 1994 when Kenny “K2-ICE” Eklund and Martin “DH_admin” Öjes rented the local school cafeteria in the small city Malung, Sweden and invited their computer enthusiast friends to join them for a weekend of coding and hacking.
Today DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Winter are the world’s largest digital festivals, the indisputable largest LAN parties in the world with over 26,000 visitors, 22,483 unique devices in the network each and close to 10 000 visitors who enjoy DreamHack with their own computer. DreamHack also features world class esports events, DreamExpo, cosplay and a celebration on all things Internet happening several times each year all around the world.
Our team was incredibly excited when DreamHack announced their expansion to the U.S. – and we hope to see their events bolster the LAN community here in the states.
On that note, we’re incredibly proud to welcome DreamHack on board as a supporter of Gamers for Giving 2017! Gamers Outreach is partnering with DreamHack to equip our streamers with an allotment of high-end broadcast PCs. You can also expect to see our crew at a few of their events (TBA) throughout 2017.
We’re inspired by the DreamHack team and all they’ve accomplished over the years for the gaming community. Show them some love on Facebook and Twitter, and join us in welcoming them to Gamers for Giving 2017!
We’ll see you on April 1st and 2nd at the EMU Convocation Center!
