DreamHack Atlanta is back after a three-year pandemic break; and it all takes place November 18-20 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
DreamHack is the ultimate gaming festival and creates a world where the gaming community comes to life —a place to connect, explore, win, play a part, and be yourself through a gaming lifestyle experience.
Whether festival-goers are admiring cosplay costumes, participating in tournaments, watching pros compete, learning to stream, testing technology at the Expo, DreamHack offers an unforgettable experience. If interested, we have Atlanta-based cosplayers, competitors, dancers and more who will be featured (and are available for interviews).
AND … happening right alongside DreamHack is the return of the Atlanta Esports Summit (Nov 17-18), which will highlight and spotlight the thriving esports industry in Georgia and beyond.
November 18-20, 2022, at the Georgia World Congress Center, offering everything gaming under one roof. The festival also offers more than $400,000 in prize money up for grabs through competitions open to everyone. The competitions and activations include
• Live Ludwig Subathon — In a “The Truman Show” style format, YouTuber Ludwig will live in a locked glass box for 50 straight hours at DreamHack Atlanta to raise $100,000 for charity.
• DreamHack Featuring Fortnite
• DreamHack Starcraft 2 Masters (invitation only)
• DreamHack Fighters (fighting games) — with $39,000 in prize pools (plus Atlanta-based competitors)
• Expo (with Skyscraper tournaments and activations, plus the artist alley, indie games, and more)
• BYOC Tournaments
• Magic: The Gathering DreamHack Showdown — More than $150,000 in prize pools
• Cosplay Events including Atlanta-based cosplayers, judges and guests
• Street Dancing Competition including Atlanta-based dancers, judge and emcee/host
• and more
Festival-goers can admire cosplay costumes, participate in tournaments, watch pros compete, learn to stream, attend live music concerts, test technology at the Expo, or attend a panel as part of this unforgettable experience. DreamHack creates an arena where the community can come to connect, explore, win, play a part, and be yourself through the three-day gaming lifestyle experience that also creates a world beyond gameplay — whether admiring cosplay costumes, participating in tournaments, watching pros compete, learning to stream, testing technology at the Expo, DreamHack offers an unforgettable experience.
“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.”
Also, the annual Esport Summit will take place just ahead of DreamHack Atlanta, punctuating the thriving esports industry in Georgia and beyond. Esports Summit provides global business leaders and educators a comprehensive view of the entire esports ecosystem, including networking opportunities, presentations from industry leaders, and workshops with some of the largest names in the esports and scholastic esports industry.
DreamHack’s 2022 global tour includes a total of 10 festivals in seven countries. DreamHack has not been to Atlanta since before the pandemic in November 2019 — its first event since the pandemic was DreamHack Dallas in June.
