DreamHack Melbourne is set to feature the biggest range of eSports and gaming content ever seen at an Australian festival. We’ve mentioned the tournaments, but this isn’t just an event for professionals. Gamers who are interested in a spot of casual gaming can head over to the Centrepiece arena where it will transform into a 200-person Bring-Your-Own-PC LAN spectacular (giant LAN party), with 24-hour access and games running across the weekend.

“Gaming brought, and kept, us together during these challenging times all around the world, so I cannot begin to share how excited we are to be back in person with our community. DreamHack creates a space for our community to connect, explore, win, play, and be themselves through an interactive, gaming lifestyle experience – and while we are offering DreamHack Winter as a LAN-only event, bringing our full festivals back to life next year is going to make for some very special experiences for our community of fans,” said Krzysztof Pikiewicz, SVP of Festivals, ESL Gaming.

Tickets to DreamHack Melbourne are on sale through Ticketek via the link below and start from AUD$50 for adults and AUD$30 for children. These tickets will give you the chance to experience the DreamHack expo, concourse activities, content creator meet-and-greets, and on-ground competitions.
