DreamHack announced today, as part of its annual DreamHack Day, the 2022 World Tour schedule, which celebrates the festival’s past and early beginnings in 1994, as well as its present and future.
What began as a meeting of friends and their computers in a school canteen – without online access – has developed into a beacon of Internet culture and a meeting place for gamers worldwide, which unites everything that gaming offers under one roof.
In 2022, DreamHack will host 10 festivals in 9 major cities, including a return to Anaheim, CA, USA; Dallas, TX, USA; Valencia, Spain; Rotterdam, Netherlands; Hyderabad, India; and Atlanta, Georgia, USA; and DreamHack Summer and Winter in Jönköping, Sweden.
