In November 2024, the festival, together with the festival partner Elgiganten, will come to Stockholm and the Stockholm Fair. As part of the ESL FACEIT Group (EFG), DreamHack has already established itself worldwide. International gaming hubs like Atlanta, Dallas, Melbourne and Tokyo all host DreamHack's amazing festivals.

Taking DreamHack to Stockholm is special for me personally. Gaming belongs in Stockholm and we want to contribute to and develop the unique culture that makes the gaming world in the city so special. From creators and amazing Cosplay artists, to the latest games, products and the best eSports. We are building a platform for everyone, says Shahin Zarrabi, VP of Festivals at ESL FACEIT Group

I am very happy to welcome DreamHack to Stockholm 2024. DreamHack's work to bring together gamers from different parts of the world promotes cultural exchange and entrepreneurship. The festival has great significance for Stockholm and strengthens the city's central role in the global gaming world. We have more game developers per capita than anywhere else in the world, and are a creative hotspot where esports, technology, music and fashion meet. This is an important step to strengthen Stockholm's reputation as a welcoming and progressive place for the gaming industry, says Staffan Ingvarsson, CEO of Stockholm Business Region.

We are very much looking forward to having DreamHack at the Stockholm Fair in November next year. Hosting a festival that sparks youth interest in gaming and esports is significant and it's a great opportunity to welcome not only those already interested in gaming, but also to welcome and generate interest for new participants. Since e-sports and gaming as live events are growing globally and in Sweden, we are happy to welcome such a festival to Stockholm and the Stockholm Fair, says Christian Clemens, CEO at Stockholmsmässan.

Our multi-year partnership with DreamHack is one of our most important investments in the gaming community. It is also a partnership that we are passionate about. Gaming unites people and with the new festival in Stockholm it will be even easier for people to gather and enjoy the fantastic experience that DreamHack has to offer. We are looking forward to DreamHack Stockholm 2024 and will do our best to take the festival to the next level together with the team at EFG, says Alexander Åberg, gaming manager at Elgiganten.
