All remaining DreamHack festivals for 2020 have been postponed until next year, organisers have confirmed. 

After DreamHack Dallas, DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Montreal were all pushed back to next year, organisers have now postponed all their remaining 2020 events until 2021. 

The events affected are DreamHack Rotterdam, DreamHack Hyderabad, DreamHack Atlanta, DreamHack Winter and DreamHack Madrid. 

In a statement, DreamHack co-CEO Marcus Lindmark, said: “The goal for all of us at DreamHack is to provide great experiences at our events, which thrive by bringing communities together for these shared and beloved festival weekends all around the globe.

“We have never had to postpone events like this before - but these are extraordinary times, and the safety of our attendees and staff has never been more important than now.”
