DreamHack is back in Stockholm with The World’s best eSports Show. This time we move to a bigger venue, Annexet (part of Stockholms no.1 Sports- and Entertainment District Stockholm Globe Arenas) with 2,300 individual seats. DreamHack will offer a two day experience with two unique flavors.
Day 1 opens up with the group stage in a tournament area where the audience can get up and close to the players, watch matches on-site and meet the Stars in fan meetings etc. Day 2 is a full StarCraft stage-show as seen on DreamHack Invitational in 2011, but now upgraded and improved, for example with a 12 metre 16-projection screen! Both days are included in the ticket price of only SEK 199.
EsportBar at Location
The BarCraft phenomenon is growing stronger by minute and at DreamHack EIZO Open Stockholm you can have the full BarCraft experience at the venue, thanks to EIZO. The Esport Bar is serving beer, wine, soft drinks and food during both event days. It will be located on the second floor, on a huge balcony, where you can easily watch the whole show. You will of course find some special eSports drinks on the menu and the area will be reserved for 18+ people only.
