FESTIVAL

DreamHack is the worlds largest digital festival, the indisputable largest LAN party in the world with over 50,000 visitors, 23,425 unique devices in the network and close to 10 000 visitors who enjoy DreamHack with their own computer. There is a lot of new visitors at each DreamHack event and one of many questions we got is where to choose your LAN seat. Here is guide over the different areas at DreamHack Winter 2016. We hope that it will make it more easy to choose your seats and also how to get around at Elmia.

Please note: Some areas can be changed without prior notice. Please check back for updates and final map at location during the festivals.

HALL D

277

Hall D is the biggest LAN hall, where we host the Opening Ceremony and you also find two eSports Area (where all professional tournaments are being played). The particular LAN experience in Hall D is quite quiet and easy-going. You can of course get disturbed by the audience from the CS:GO Finals. Also, you find DreamHack Support in Hall D where you can get help with your PC, if something happens.

HALL B

Inside Hall B you have the Main Stage and all Music live concerts, but it’s also where we host the finals of the Cosplay & Kreativ activities. During the day’s and evenings also our partners and sponsors have alot fun activities on stage. Around the hall , but mostly different food stands where you can get a burger or a waffle. You also find two large activity-areas DreamExpo (where all exhibiting companies is)

HALL C

Hall C is in direct connection to Hall D. It’s a quiet hall, with no stage or super loud activities – but it’s very close to Hall D and just like Hall B, you can also follow the activities on the Main stage from our projection screens in each hall.

Overall Hall C is kinda relaxed hall where a lot of people that want to have a quiet experience sits. In terms of activities it’s a hall that we want to develop much more into becoming a activity hall. During the last two DreamHack-events we have been hosting the “Stream Area” in Hall C where some of world’s most famous Youtube- and Twitch-streamers sits. In addition to that, we also have old school console games and other activities in this hall.

If you’re a gamer that like a quiet gaming experience but still want to take part in the big stuff going on in Hall D, then we would recommend to pick a seat in Hall C.
