DreamHack, an ESL FACEIT Group brand, and T-Pain’s Nappy Boy Gaming (NBG) will team up at DreamHack Atlanta to bring another element of activities as the Festival prepares to return to Atlanta for the fifth edition of its immersive, gaming lifestyle experience. The Festival weekend will be the culmination of Games Week Georgia, and will feature everything gaming under one roof as attendees experience professional esports tournaments, amateur and varsity gaming tournaments, world-famous bring-your-own-computer (BYOC) LAN party, cosplay championship, panels, art, activities, expo, screenings, and more.
Tickets to DreamHack Atlanta are available here.
“All of us at DreamHack are excited to welcome T-Pain and Nappy Boy Gaming to DreamHack Atlanta,” said Guy Blomberg, Senior Director of DreamHack Festivals – Americas. “We want each DreamHack Festival to reflect the fabric of the cities they are in, so to have NBG part of DreamHack and Georgia Games Week certainly helps connect our Festival with this great city in a variety of ways. There’s so much talent and opportunity here, and we want to make sure everyone knows about it.”
“Having NBG at DreamHack is going to be a great experience,” said NBG member Big Cheese. “Catching up with old friends, meeting new friends, networking with companies, creating great memories and content, and having fun. We want people to leave DreamHack with something memorable.”
Hert Life added: “This is my first DreamHack with the Nappy Boy Gaming crew and I’m excited! I’ve heard about this event for years but never got the opportunity to check it out. I’m looking forward to playing some games with the team and hopefully find some automotive-based games in rotation, too! Considering I’ve never been, I don’t know what to expect so I’m going in with a very open mind.”
Brew agreed, saying: “NappyBoyGaming is excited to play a huge part in Dreamhack this year! For many of us, it’s our first DreamHack ever. After months of planning, I’m excited to finally experience it!”
