THE WORLD’S LARGEST LAN PARTY



DreamHack is a LAN party, a local area network gathering with demo competitions, gaming competitions and more. It’s arranged twice annually at the Elmia exhibition centre in Jönköping, Sweden and also twice a year at Expolaris Congresscenter, Skellefteå, Sweden and holds the world record (as recognized by the Guinness Book of Records and Twin Galaxies) for the world’s largest LAN party and computer festival. DreamHack began as a small gathering of schoolmates and friends in the basement of an elementary school in Malung in the early 90′s. In 1994 it was moved to the school cafeteria and became one of the larger regional demoparties at the time. The 1994 gathering was also the first one to go by the name DreamHack. In 1997 the event took place at Arena Kupolen in Borlänge and became the largest LAN party of Sweden and the third largest party in Scandinavia at the time. Eventually DreamHack 2001 and the upcoming events were held at the Elmia exhibition centre in Jönköping, where it has been since. At DreamHack Winter 2010 a new world record was set. The record is now 12,754 computers and 13,608 visitors. The previous record was set at DreamHack Winter 2007 when there were 10,544 computers and 11,060 visitors.
