“We can’t wait to showcase everything DreamHack has to offer to our Australian community – to be able to bring this storied festival to life in Melbourne for the first time later this year is a unique opportunity. We’ve already heard how excited fans are to attend our BYOC LAN at DreamHack Melbourne, and would encourage everyone interested in attending to secure their ticket as soon as possible, as spots are limited.”

“With the DreamHack Melbourne Founders Pass, we wanted to give the most passionate members of the DreamHack community in Australia the chance to get hands-on with our take on a limited edition collectible well before the event. It’s something fans can cherish in years to come having been there with us from the beginning of this journey.” said  Brad Baldwin, Project Manager at ESL Australia.
