Dreamhack announces 2020 schedule

DreamHack has announced the 2020 list of events and Open circuit on its 25th anniversary and we have got you covered with all the dates and details.

DreamHack marks its 25th anniversary with “DreamHack Day” — a celebration of the festival’s early 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 is now the premiere gaming lifestyle festival.
