Dreamhack has been growing feverishly in tune with the Esports Industry and that isn’t slowing down for 2019 as they expand to 10 worldwide events. Notably on the map for the first time is South America. It’s taken 24 years but better late than never!
Rio de Janeiro will be the inaugural SA city with the event spread across the Parque Olímpico facilities. Dreamhack Rio will feature a $100k CounterStrike event along with the 100+ BYOC lan area, exhibitor space and vendors.
(Dreamhack will have their first ever India event this December as well.)
In an interview with The Esports Observer, Dreamhack CSO
Tomas Lyckedal commented that they had over 300,000 attendees across 2018. We’re sure they expect more in 2019.
Check out the full schedule below:
DreamHack will host three-day, non-stop festivals in 10 major cities, including debuts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Rotterdam, Netherlands; and Dallas, TX, USA. 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.
