Q: Is there an age restriction at the festival?

A: Everyone is welcome at DreamHack Summer! Anyone below the age of 13 must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian at all times. Anyone below the age of 18 is required to have their parent or legal guardian sign a waiver.

Q: Do I need to bring anything to BYOC other than my PC?

A: For every BYOC ticket purchased will receive one table seat reservation and a basic chair. You will be provided with one electrical socket and one internet port. You will need to provide an internet cable (we recommend a minimum of 10m to be safe) and a power strip to be able to plug in both computer tower and monitor. If you forget these, they will be available for purchase at the DreamHack Store.

Q: Is it safe to bring my PC to a festival?

A: It is absolutely safe to bring your PC to our event. We will have our Crew security staff on-site during the whole event. If you are concerned about security you may bring a computer lock to secure your tower (or laptop) and peripherals to the table. We do not recommend leaving valuables like cell phones or wallets at your BYOC seat as those are much easier to walk away with. DreamHack is not responsible for any lost possessions.

Q: Can I really sleep overnight at the festival?

A: Yes, we have a big sleeping area in Hall A and Racketcentrum, a short walk from Elmia. The sleeping space is on a first come, first serve basis.

Q: Can I buy a cozy hoodie at the festival?

A: Yes! The official DreamHack Store will be on-site and your place to purchase exclusive DreamHack clothing and gear and some limited items only available onsite at DreamHack events.
