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.
WHAT IS DREAMHACK AUSTIN?
DreamHack Austin is DreamHack’s first foray into North America, being hosted in Austin, Texas at the Austin Convention Center on May 6-8th, 2016.
DreamHack is a meeting place for gamers, and the primary content is always centred around the massive LAN party. Gamers are able to bring their own gaming rigs along their friends to set up for gaming nonstop for 3 days. Alongside this visitors will be able to check out world class esport tournaments happening over the weekend, as well as a huge variety of other activities including checking out the DreamExpo, Cosplay, picking up some DreamHack merchandise and organising among community whatever else they may want to do!
