Tickets to DreamHack Melbourne, Australia’s First Ever DreamHack Festival, Are On Sale This Week

Today ESL Australia has announced that tickets to DreamHack Melbourne, Australia’s first DreamHack festival, to be held at Melbourne & Olympic Parks across September 2-4, will be made available to purchase on 10AM AEST THIS THURSDAY, APRIL 7 via Ticketek. Prior to general on-sale, existing fans subscribed to the DreamHack Melbourne newsletter will receive an invite to a 24-hour fan-only pre-sale starting from 10AM AEST (7AM AWST, 12PM NZDT) on Wednesday, April 6. Fans invited to the pre-sale will have the first chance to purchase limited tickets, including the BYOC LAN Pass and DreamHack Melbourne Founders Pass. DreamHack Melbourne is presented with the support of the Victorian Government via its tourism and major events agency Visit Victoria.

Attendees at the festival will be able to experience everything a classic DreamHack has to offer, including a BYOC LAN tournament in Tennis HQ, multiple esports finals including the LCO – League of Legends Circuit Oceania finals and Halo Championship Series: ANZ, held in Margaret Court Arena, ESL Challenger #50 CS:GO, held in Rod Laver Arena, and a number of other on-site gaming activities across the precinct, featuring everything from tabletop games to local independent game studios.

“We can’t wait to showcase everything DreamHack has to offer to our Australian community – to be able to bring this storied festival to life in Melbourne for the first time later this year is a unique opportunity. We’ve already heard how excited fans are to attend our BYOC LAN at DreamHack Melbourne, and would encourage everyone interested in attending to secure their ticket as soon as possible, as spots are limited.”

“With the DreamHack Melbourne Founders Pass, we wanted to give the most passionate members of the DreamHack community in Australia the chance to get hands-on with our take on a limited edition collectible well before the event. It’s something fans can cherish in years to come having been there with us from the beginning of this journey.” said  Brad Baldwin, Project Manager at ESL Australia.
