The LAN-Area is an “Bring Your Own Computer (or Console)” area (“BYOC”) and is the core of our DreamHack festival.
Each LAN ticket gets you a reserved seat (table and seat), a port on our network for your computer or console, a power outlet (Schuko) for your gear and a chair. Alternatively, you can even bring your own chair! The exact components of a LAN ticket also depend on the ticket category.
The LAN is a secured and restricted access area: You cannot enter the area without a LAN ticket.
The other way around LAN ticket holders have access to the festival area of DreamHack during the festival opening hours.

If you have problems with your PC or other hardware items during the DreamHack, you can go to Tech Support in the LAN area. A team of competent people will help you.
Upon admission, security stickers with serial numbers will be affixed to monitors, PCs and laptops that you have brought with you. When leaving the hall, the security stickers are checked and compared with the assigned participant data in the system. While participants remain solely responsible for the safety of their valuables and the organizer accepts no liability in the event of loss, this supporting system offers additional protection. We recommend securing any hardware you have brought with you, for example using Kensington locks, and carrying small valuables on your person.
The Info Point will be your first point of contract if you have any technical or general issues during your adventures in the LAN-Area. They will forward the problem towards the right people. You will also receive any important infos about the LAN-Tournaments at the Info Point.
