      The LAN area at DreamHack Leipzig is being expanded after a surge in demand for tickets – Germany’s biggest LAN party has been celebrated at DreamHack Leipzig since 2016 – and it never stops growing. Whereas there were only 1,000 seats available at the première event, the area was relocated into its own hall last year and expanded to provide 1,500 seats. Two months before the start of DreamHack Leipzig 2018, the original consignment of 1,500 tickets has already sold out. Due to this great demand, the LAN area is now being expanded. Additional rows of seating will be released one after the other in the ticket shop. Depending on demand, the LAN party at DreamHack Leipzig 2018 can be increased up to 2,000 seats.
