It’s been a long three years since the last full-fledged live in-person esports event in ANZ. While we can mourn the Melbourne Esports Open and IEM Melbourne dreams – no pun intended – something incredible is happening in Australia’s esports capital this weekend with DreamHack Melbourne.
I’m excited to confirm a bunch of the dedicated crew from Snowball will be in attendance at DreamHack Melbourne, whose express objective will be to bring the best player and team stories to life in person once more. And yes, maybe a few shenanigans as well if Andrew Wray bends to mounting pressure.
This year at the inaugural DreamHack Melbourne there will be more esports than you can poke a stick at. Top billing will see ESL Challenger #50 take to the main stage for CS:GO fans, as well as the two huge final matches of the LCO season and the Worlds 2022 representative decided.
Pair those with a dedicated FGC stage from CouchWarriors and the Halo Championship Series ANZ Regional Finals, and you’ve got one stacked Melbourne Olympic Park for the first time since 2019. There’s so much more on the official schedule, including a student-specific program featuring panels and focused on educating the next generation of esports career hunters.
Keep an eye out for some great lead-in content from the team as we look towards the weekend, including some Melbourne-specific info similar to the original Survival Guides for the best food and bev to check out while you’re in town.
Tickets for DreamHack Melbourne are still available, and you can find the full schedule and all the info you need at the official website.
