A brief history of DreamHack

DreamHack started out as a small gathering of friends along with their computers at a school cafeteria with no online access. However, thanks to the passion involved, this small gathering grows.

In 2011, the company went through corporate reform, which renewed its administration. It held events twice a year, a tradition that has kept on going to this day.

DreamHack summer focuses on video games, while Dreamhack winter is focused on computer program demos. The organizer also once hosted League of Legends season 1 World Championships. It was the only esports organisation to host the League Of Legends World Championships. In 2020, DreamHack merged with ESL. 

Nowadays, DreamHack is known for its production quality in various events, including major esports titles such as CS:GO, DOTA 2, among others.

As esports continues to grow, DreamHack has solidified its position as one of the leading organizers in esports and introduced new LAN experiences over the years.
