DreamHack Announces "DreamHack Beyond" Online Festival

DreamHack revealed that next week, they will be holding their own online festival event which they are calling DreamHack Beyond. The event will kick off on May 27th and run all the way until June 2nd, giving esports fans a little something of everything for those who can't attend Dreamhack Dallas in person. This will include multiple pro tournaments, Collegiate & High School tournaments with AVGL, creative contests, several indie developer streams, daily quizzes, and more. This will essentially serve as a precursor to the Dallas event, running from June 3rd-5th, which will be the organization's first full-scale, in-person festival in nearly two and a half years. Which, if you want to attend, is happening at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Here's some additional info on the event for you to read over if you want to check it out.
