Nerd Street Gamers to Power 275 State-of-the-Art PC Setups for Inaugural DreamHack Anaheim Festival This Month

STOCKHOLM — DreamHack, the premier gaming lifestyle festival, has announced it will continue its partnership with Nerd Street Gamers, the national esports infrastructure company dedicated to powering competitive opportunities. The partnership will provide DreamHack Anaheim competitors and attendees with state-of-the-art gaming PCs during the festival on February 21-23, 2020. Nerd Street Gamers will deliver a whopping 275 Localhost PC setups to this inaugural DreamHack festival in Anaheim, California — the first-ever DreamHack festival on the U.S. West Coast.

The 24 hour-a-day DreamHack festival weekend will feature everything gaming under one roof and will be jam-packed with pro esports tournaments, amateur and varsity gaming tournaments, world-famous bring your own computer (BYOC) LAN party, cosplay championship, panels, art, activities, expo, screenings, live music, film screenings and more. 

“We’re excited to team up with Nerd Street Gamers once again,” said Bas Bruinekool, Vice President of DreamHack Inc. “Their Localhost PC setup has proven to be the perfect fit for our festivals, offering our attendees an exceptional opportunity to accomplish great things. A solid PC partner is crucial in order to provide PC Freeplay and esports competition participants with the best possible experience.”

“DreamHack is an incredible partner, and we are proud that they continue to select Nerd Street Gamers to power their LAN events across the United States,” said John Fazio, Founder and CEO at Nerd Street Gamers. “We are focused on providing more opportunities for gamers through powerful equipment, facilities, and tournaments, and we are looking forward to having a large presence in Anaheim."

The 275 Localhost PCs setups that will be shipped are built with state of the art tech specs that include RTX 2070 graphics processors and the i7-9700K CPU. The machines are part of Localhost Mobile Deployment Unit, a popup tournament service that allows Nerd Street Gamers to transport and activate esports competitions rapidly all over the continental U.S.

DreamHack kicked off its 25th anniversary in December during DreamHack Winter and will continue the celebration through 2020. The premier gaming lifestyle festival started as a gathering of friends and their computers in a school cafeteria — with no online access — but has grown into a beacon of internet culture and a gathering place for gamers worldwide featuring everything gaming under one roof.
