Announcement   Announcement : DATASTORM 2010
   posted by spotUP on 6-Sep-2009 19:58:00 (2627 reads)
UP ROUGH SOUNDSYSTEM, GENESIS PROJECT and DIVINE STYLERS invites you to DATASTORM 2010!

The demo party for oldskool platforms. Only.

PREFACE

Sweden has since 1998 been blessed with the world's greatest summer party, Little Computer People,
delivering hot data action for the oldskool crowd year after year. While we are grateful to the Hack'n'Trade
posse for having us boozing, computing, and socializing each year, we curse them for the hardcore one
year data-abstinence they inflict upon us inbetween each party...

Read more...


Since we obviously can't get rid of the addiction, we have now decided to accept it and even take it to the next
level by doubling the dose! The winter-time withdrawal syndromes has finally come to an end for all you oldskool
fanatics: The absolute swedish elite has gathered to bring you the best darn fix of Amiga/C64/Console action ever!


THE DEAL

Up Rough Soundsystem, Genesis Project & Divine Stylers hereby invite you to DATASTORM 2010! The ultimate winter party
for people operating on machines with SOUL. It's going down on the the 5:th of February 2010 and keeps going until
the 7:th of February 2010! Can you dig it?

Party location is the city of Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast - the stronghold of the Swedish Amigascene.
The city is easy to reach through two international airports, ferry, and train.

The entrance fee is set to 200 SEK (~20E), with dinner included on Saturday and breakfast included on
Saturday and Sunday. Only Swedish currency accepted.


PARTYPLACE

You know that when we do stuff, we do it right, and this time we have put in an extra effort to make that dreary
weekend in February something special. The party will be hosted at a night club in an industrial complex, close to
the centre of Gothenburg, providing that special mix of roughness and coziness that we all love.
In addition to the tables on which to put your real hardware on, although we allow laptops for cross-dev purposes,
we have lounge areas with cozy sofas and arm chairs where you can comfortably sit around and talk about that new
cruncher routine you've been working on for the last decade or whatever...


FEATURES

Having the party at a nightclub is something special. The greatest difference from other small parties is that
DATASTORM will feature a proper bar with service-minded personnel that works as long as people are awake and will
serve thirsty party freaks with an endless supply of beer, wine, and soft drinks. But a party is not just about
drinking right? We also hired some cooks that will deliver vegetarian and non-vegetarian breakfast, dinner,
and supper on announced times. When the special meals are not served, barfood like pizza, hummous rolls, falafel
and kebab can be ordered as long as the bar is open. Everything to a price that even the schemer on a budget
can afford! Of course you can also buy snacks, candy, and tobacco at all times. And the coffee is free, so you don't
fall asleep before your releases are finished in time for the competition!

Here is a list with all features of the party, more stuff might be added in the future so stay tuned!

* Bar open almost 24h with full assortment of cheap beer/wine/soft drinks.
* 2 Breakfasts and 1 Dinner included in entrance fee, vegetarian alternatives available.
* A variety of cheap bar food is available anytime.
* Snacks and tobacco available 24 hours.
* Super chill environment with cozy furniture.
* 6 clean toilets. No queues! Never pee your pants! Freedom!
* Powerful nightclub sound system!
* ####tail data - we strive to get the perfect mix of socializing and computing!


SPECIAL GUESTS

* The grandfather of moduleswappers returns! Slash / Citron. is back! He will bring his customized
hippodecks to deliver the finest zak ever written in protracker. Bring your boathorns and your guns!
This is one show you don't wanna miss! Pull up selecta! Move Rudebwoy Move!
* More stuff is coming.. Stay tuned!


BATTLES

The mighty competition is being held at Saturday evening with the winners being presented after midnight.
For detailed info about the compos, head over to http://www.datastorm.se
Stay tuned for the announcement of compo-prizes!

The atmosphere when all competitors are present during the compo is unbeatable.
Therefore we do not allow remote entries which means that at least one of the authors of an entry must be present
at the party. However, we do allow (and even encourage!) snail mail entries in the Packdisk Open contest,
see below for further details.

These are times I wish I was in the oldsch00l scene!

...went into programming too late and never learned the hardware properly doing OS friently highlevel programming with only auxiliary assembly programming...
