Originally established as a large-scale LAN party, the DreamHack brand has since grown into a gaming and e-sports festival that includes music, parties and e-sports competitions taking place around the world.
San Diego will be one of three locations in the United States to host a DreamHack in 2023. Before that, the 2022 festival still has a few stations ahead of it. These include DreamHack Atlanta in November, DreamHack Valencia and DreamHack Winter in Sweden, whose Hannover edition rounds out the company’s 2022 roadmap.
DreamHack organizers also announced that on December 9th – also known as DreamHack Day – the festival will unveil its full global lineup for 2023. In total there will be 10 festivals in seven countries.
Details on which esports competitions are scheduled to take place in San Diego have not been announced.

Shahin Zarrabi, VP of Strategy & Growth at DreamHack, commented, “San Diego continues to build on its reputation as a host city for major industry conventions – DreamHack will help by creating an arena where you connect, explore, win, play a role and be yourself through a gaming lifestyle experience.”
