DreamHack Dallas Tickets Now On Sale

STOCKHOLM - On Sunday, December 9, 2018, DreamHack marked its 24th anniversary as the world's premier gaming lifestyle festival. The date also marked "DreamHack Day" - the yearly celebration of the festival's beginnings in 1994. What started as a gathering of friends and their computers in a school cafeteria - with no online access - has grown into a beacon of internet culture and a gathering place for gamers worldwide featuring everything gaming under one roof. "DreamHack Day" also offers a time to reflect on the company's past, present and future, and to officially announce the 2019 world tour schedule. Watch video.

In 2019, DreamHack Dallas will debut May 31-June 2, 2019, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. The three-day event will feature everything gaming under one roof, including the BYOC LAN, esports tournaments, cosplay, live music concerts, an expo and more! In addition, the three-day weekend will feature the Corsair DreamHack Masters, including 16 world-class Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) teams with more than $250,000 in prizes. CORSAIR DreamHack Masters is a premier event, focusing on the viewer experience both for those in the arena and those watching from around the world via the online stream. Tickets will be available beginning Wednesday, December 12 at 9 a.m. CST here.

DreamHack will host festivals in nine additional major cities in 2019, including debuts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Rotterdam, Netherlands. Additional locations include Leipzig, Germany; Tours, France, Valencia and Sevilla, Spain; Montreal, Canada; Atlanta, Georgia, USA; and DreamHack Summer and Winter in Jönköping, Sweden.

"DreamHack's 2019 calendar continues our strategy to grow our festival globally, while also continuing to celebrate the roots of our beginnings through 'DreamHack Day' each year on the 9th of December. It's also a day to celebrate all who visit our events all over the world, and to thank the thousands of people who make these events safe and fun for all," said DreamHack CEO Marcus Lindmark. "DreamHack looks back at 2018 with great pride, but we're even more thrilled about the upcoming year as we go stronger into current markets, expand to new markets and continue to create  the most engaging gaming festival in the world."

2018 was a tremendous year of growth for DreamHack, including its first-ever ever event in Asia, DreamHack Mumbai. DreamHack also introduced an array of new festival experiences while also solidifying its position as the market leader in multi-titled esports competitions. The festival experience will continue to innovate and improve the experience for both attendees and fans alike.
