The LEVEL UP Festival in Salzburg celebrates the fascination of gaming with established and new program highlights. On the LEVEL UP Mainstage, eSports will be presented from its best side. You can marvel at top-class tournaments in Rocket League, a type of car soccer, Counter-Strike 2, a tactical shooter, and League of Legends, a game from the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre, among others. Smaller tournaments will be held on the new Community Stage, in which all visitors of the festival can take part.

In addition, the creative side of gaming culture will be celebrated with a dedicated area for cosplay, where fans will bring their favorite characters to life with great dedication. At the back of the area, tabletop and card game fans will once again get their money's worth.
