DreamHack is the world’s largest digital festival, and a meeting place for gamers with major events hosted each year in Europe and North America. Founded in Malung in 1994 and organized in 2001 at the Elmia exhibition center in Jönköping and since 2008 also at Expolaris Kongresscenter in Skellefteå, DreamHack’s core has always been the LAN party where attendees bring their computer from home and set up for 3 straight days of gaming. DreamHack’s festivals have grown organically over time, becoming a platform for esports, internet and gaming culture, intellectual and creative competitions, live music acts, lectures by industry experts, celebrity streamers, cosplayers, Expo Hall and much more.
