DreamHack started in 1994 in Sweden with a social gathering of 20 people gaming together. Since then DreamHack has grown into a bi-annual digital festival with nearly 10,000 attendees bringing their own computers, and over 25,000 people attending the event in total. DreamHack is a platform for everything internet related, from esports, gaming, coding, cosplay and more.
DreamHack had this to say:
Today, DreamHack AB, the World’s largest digital festival is thrilled to announce we will host our first event outside of Europe, which will be hosted at the Austin Convention Center on May 6-8th 2016.
Since 2010, DreamHack has expanded internationally and is now holding events in Romania, Spain, Russia, France, and England. DreamHack Austin will be the first DreamHack event outside Europe.
