DreamHack Summer is the ultimate social experience for gamers – gaming online is awesome but gaming IRL at the DreamHack LAN is even cooler!
DreamHack was founded in November 1994 by Kenny “K2-ICE” Eklund and Martin “DH_Admin” Öjes. They rented the local school cafeteria in the small city Malung and invited their computer entusiast friends to join them for a weekend of coding and hacking, the event attracted 40 people and had no Internet connection.
Today DreamHack is the World’s largest digital festival. DreamHack’s core and origin is the LAN party, with the two major festivals in Sweden – DreamHack Summer in June and DreamHack Winter in November. In 2007 DreamHack was awarded with a Guinness World Record for “Guinness World Record of no of computers in a LAN” with 10 455 connected devices in the network. At DreamHack Winter 2015 the network had 23425 unique devices in the network, the largest DreamHack Network and LAN ever built.
