DreamHack announces Festival Tour 2023 locations & dates

DreamHack is set to go big in 2023, announcing a Festival Tour that will host 12 esports events worldwide throughout the year.


In the esports space, DreamHack has been a prominent part of event schedules throughout previous years, and it looks like the festival event is set to go bigger than ever in 2023. DreamHack events had a rough go of it in the COVID-19 pandemic years, having to cancel several events like many other video game industry and esports gatherings, but it started to come back to full form in 2022, and now a Festival Tour has been announced for 2023 that will include 12 events spread across 7 countries worldwide.

The DreamHack organizers announced Festival Tour 2023 via Twitter and the DreamHack website on December 9, 2022. Over the course of next year, the event series will roll out with 12 esports festivals and gatherings. While some staples like DreamHack Dallas, Melbourne, Valencia, and Winter will return, other new events are being added to the schedule such as DreamHack San Diego. Unfortunately, some events such as DreamHack Anaheim and Austin don’t seem to be on the schedule at this time.
