…. and the countdown is over!

The world’s largest digital festival is coming to Montreal. August 12 – 14th 2016, DreamHack’s first Canadian event will take place in Montreal at Place Bonaventure, with plans to make it an annual tradition.

For those who are unfamiliar, DreamHack currently holds the Guinness Book of World Record’s title of world’s largest LAN party and computer festival. DreamHack has held events throughout Europe including Stockholm and Jönköping, Sweden, Tours, France, Bucharest and Cluj, Romania, Valencia, Spain, London, England and Leipzig, Germany. This year is the first time that DreamHack is coming to North America with its inaugural US event in Austin, Texas. Montreal can now be added to the list.

“DreamHack Montreal represents our commitment and dedication to continue to grow the DreamHack phenonem and reach even more visitors at live events.” Said Marcus Lindmark, CEO of DreamHack, “We are tremendously excited to launch this event in the Summer, working together with many of the experienced crew from Lan ETS, and bring the DreamHack experience to some of the most passionate esports & gaming fans in the World in Canada.” – DreamHack press release

“We are honored to be a part of DreamHack Canada and especially to start the adventure in Montreal.” Said Simon Marin, President of DreamHack Canada, “We want to bring the complete DreamHack experience in Canada and Montreal is a no-brainer as a first stop with its recognized LAN Party culture and massive BYOC attendance growth at Lan ETS since 2012. We are excited to bring the ultimate eSports experience on Canadian soil!” – DreamHack press release

The event will feature at least two major international eSports tournaments, a BYOC (bring your own computer) LAN, activities for games of all console, PC and fighting genres, cosplay contests and more.
