Last year's festival in Mumbai was the first-ever to be held in Asia.

Multiple eSport competitions, live music, exhibitions, creative competitions, LAN party, cosplay and much more – the mothership has arrived for gamers in India. DreamHack has been all about entertainment for the digital generation for the last 20 years.

This year's event is titled DreamHack Delhi and will be held in the national capital of India, New Delhi, on December 6-8, at the NSIC Exhibition Ground. The event will see gamers and e-sports enthusiasts come together for 72 hours of eSports gaming competitions, LAN parties, sections of games from all generations and a perfect stage for artists, cosplayers, developers and gamers to connect and grow. There is also a 55K USD (39 Lacs INR) CS:GO Invitational tournament with top national and international teams invited.

"We are happy to return to the great gaming country of India. Last year's festival in Mumbai was historical as it was the first ever to be held in Asia,” said Marcus Lindmark, co-CEO of DreamHack. "India has a very strong gaming community, which we got to experience first-hand during last year's event."

This year’s edition will feature an array of games ranging from eSports game titles like CSGO, Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bro, Tekken 7 and PUBG along with the classic collection of retro and table-top games where daily top scorers will be awarded from a prize pool of 75,000 INR for retro games and 100,000 INR for table-top games.
