July 6th, 2015 22:59

DreamHack has announced that it will start operating in North America soon.

A video teaser posted on DreamHack's Youtube Channel revealed that the Sweden-based company is coming to North America, with more information about the event due to be revealed on Wednesday, July 8.

The news marks a new era in the history of DreamHack, which will extend its operations beyond Europe for the first time.


The DreamHack festival is coming to North America 

Last month, the Swedish company announced that it would expand to Germany, where its debut event will take place from January 22-24, in Leipzig.

Bad news. NA has much better organisation skills than EU. It will be a regress for NA.

2015-07-07 11:16
You're forgetting Atlana or New Orleans
2015-07-08 01:40
I'm forgetting a lot of nice cities :p
2015-07-08 02:29
Atlanta would be perfect.
2015-07-08 02:08
I'm hoping for Staples Center @ Los Angeles American Airlines Stadium @ Miami Madison Square Garden @ NYC Mall Of America @ Bloomington Not gonna happen tho, too expensive rent (or whatever it's called) for DreamHack in those places. :(

Yuo cluthcon and iron gaming FTW!
2015-07-06 23:27
Don't forget the first CEVO LAN
2015-07-06 23:29

2015-07-07 00:40
LA or NYC are the only two places probably, maybe Toronto or Montreal
2015-07-06 23:09
Fuck that shit. Somewhere near Boston pls.
2015-07-06 23:41
is nyc not close enough to boston for you?
2015-07-06 23:58
aint tryna deal with NYC but if it does happen there, I might go. Tbh, I'd prefer montreal over nyc
2015-07-07 03:14
chicago maybe even too
2015-07-06 23:55
everybody would get shot :(
2015-07-07 00:00
Chicago. Biggest convention center in NA. Also center of the USA with ease to get to it from any direction. Plus Chicago is already fitted for any event ever thrown at it.
2015-07-07 00:31
Yeah Chicago, NYC, or LA/SD area, can't really see it happening anywhere else in the US. The only remaining suitable place is Seattle. In Canada 3 places: Vancouver, Montreal, or Toronto.

Lol'd so hard at Little Rock
2015-07-07 10:09
Chicago is a crime ridden shithole, doubt anyone would want to go there.
2015-07-07 02:04
Its segregated mostly to a neighborhood. There is definitely more wealthy areas than ghetto areas. I Don't think you know much about Chicago. And it's definitely not a shithole. We lead the nation or close to the top in culinary, diversity, art/museums, amenities... Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world and that's known around the world.
2015-07-07 02:57

Yea plz I'm literally typing this from the statue of liberty
2015-07-06 23:11
How tf do you manage to get into that thing I've tried 2x and the lines were just too long
2015-07-07 00:45
Go on a weekday at a time when no one cares. Been there 3 times it's pretty cool.
2015-07-07 06:57
I didn't go in, I was in the ferry and was right beside it. Good thing the ferry had free WiFi XD But I did go in when I was like 9 years old, don't remember it tho
2015-07-07 18:03
I think it may be either Columbus or Cleveland OH. Two reasons, The new convention center in Cleveland can be retro fitted for any event. and the MLG .stadium in Columbus is already home of CEVO LAN. (
2015-07-07 05:27
inb4 Madison Square Garden, every sport can probably be played there.

2015-07-06 23:02
would prolly be expensive as fuck tho
2015-07-06 23:05
houses and shit are cheap af there tho
2015-07-07 00:01
flights and hotels to las vegas are actually pretty cheap compared to other major cities. it is what you usually end up doing in las vegas that costs all the money.
2015-07-07 01:18
Ye, i meant renting the venue etc. I would expect that kind of shit to be expensive there
2015-07-07 07:50
why? same as everywhere else, vegas is cheap man, go there for poker from time to time.
2015-07-07 16:08
I guess this is the closest we will get to a NA dream.

2015-07-07 00:04
New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, Las Vegas, Montreal, and Miami would all be good places.

Requirements for Dreamhack: Large space. Amazing Internet . Enough room for all participants. Central. Based on it I'm thinking a few places. Aspen, CO Topeka, KS Dallas, TX These locations are based off requirements.
2015-07-07 02:14
Central? why?
