DreamHack Postpones Its Festivals To 2021

Europe’s biggest video game convention and LAN party is having all of its remaining 2020 events postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are the postponed events; they will be joining the previously shelved-for-2021 DreamHack Dallas, DreamHack Summer, and DreamHack Montreal:

  • DreamHack Rotterdam—originally scheduled for October 16-18, 2020
  • DreamHack Hyderabad—originally scheduled for October 31-November 1, 2020
  • DreamHack Atlanta—originally scheduled for November 13-15, 2020
  • DreamHack Winter—originally scheduled for November 27-29, 2020
  • DreamHack Madrid—originally scheduled for December 11-13, 2020

Here’s the official word from co-CEO Marcus Lindmark:

“[T]he goal for all of us at DreamHack is to provide great experiences at our events, which thrive by bringing communities together for these shared and beloved festival weekends all around the globe. We have never had to postpone events like this before—but these are extraordinary times, and the safety of our attendees and staff has never been more important than now.”

The revised dates for the show will be posted on the website on a later date this year. Fret not, as there will be a bunch of DreamHack online events to satiate your gaming jollies, including DreamHack Open Featuring Fortnite and DreamHack Open Summer.
