“We are super excited to bring DreamHack back to the great city of Atlanta,” said Shahin Zarrabi, VP Strategy & Growth at DreamHack. “These last two years of the pandemic have been so hard for so many, but gaming has always brought communities together both online and in person. So it is especially meaningful to bring our event back to Atlanta for the first time in three years. The DreamHack experience truly has no equal — we can’t wait to once again share it with Atlanta.”
Among an array of professional, amateur and collegiate gaming competitions will also be Fighting Game Championships, the beloved and famous Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) three-day LAN party; Cosplay Championship; Magic: The Gathering Atlanta Showdown; Panels; Indie Games; Expo and much more to be announced.
