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 and invited their computer entusiast friends to join them for a week end of coding and hacking. Today DreamHack is the worlds largest digital festival, the indisputable largest LAN party in the world with over 26,000 visitors, 22,483 unique devices in the network and close to 10 000 visitors who enjoy DreamHack with their own computer. DreamHack is also a world class esports event, DreamExpo, cosplay and a celebration on all things Internet happening several times each year all around the world.
DreamHack Summer 2015 is arranged 13-16 June 2015 at the Elmia Fair in Jönköping, Sweden. The festival is open 24/7. We expect over 26 000 visitors to DreamHack Summer 2015.
