BYOC AT DREAMHACK AUSTIN

DreamHack is all about the LAN party! The ultimate way to experience a DreamHack event is to bring your gaming rig, hook into our network and game on with old friends and make a few new ones! Our LAN party is open 24 hours a day, throughout the weekend. That means 50+ hours of LAN party time! Visitors with BYOC seats will be able to play in BYOC competitions, play casually with their friends, meet new people and check out everything else going on at DreamHack!

To participate in the DreamHack LAN, purchase a BYOC LAN ticket and you’ll get access to the seating chart where you’ll be able to reserve your seat. Move quickly so you can guarantee a seat next to your friends!

You may bring either your PC tower + monitor, a laptop, or a console. Gamers of all types are welcome in the LAN party. If you have any special needs for accessibility, please see a Crew member at the InfoDesk to obtain a medical pass.

For any questions about the LAN, be sure to read up on the FAQ page, and if you still have questions, please shoot us an email at support@dreamhack.com

Clan Contest: Join Forces, Win Prizes!

Who: Any group of friends, school, clan, etc can enter to win!

How It Works: Tell your clan/group to add your “clan” name when registering for their DreamHack tickets (make sure they type it the same way).
