Datastorm 2010

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...

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 fucking fix of Amiga/C64/Console axxion 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?

Partylocation is the city of Gothenburg at the swedish westcoast - 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 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 cozyness 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
cruncherroutine 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 freax with an endless supply of beer, wine, and softdrinks. But a party is not just about
drinking right? We also hired some cooks that will deliver vegetarian and non-vegeterarian breakfast, dinner,
and supper on announced times. When the special meals are not served, barfood like pizza, hummousrolls, falafel
and kebab can be ordered as long as the bar is open. Everything to a price that even the scener on a budget
can afford! Ofcourse 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/softdrinks.
* 2 Breakfasts and 1 Dinner included in entrance fee, vegeterian alternatives available.
* A variety of cheap barfood is available anytime.
* Snacks and tobacco available 24h.
* Superchill environment with cozy furniture.
* 6 clean toilets. No queues! Never pee your pants! Freedom!
* Powerful nightclub soundsystem!
* Cocktail 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 atleast 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.


MORE INFO

Head over to http://www.datastorm.se and sign up for the party and find all the info you need, if you don't find it, ask in the forum!
You can also reach us via the official party Chat.

Datastorm.se scene party in Gothenburg 5-7 Feb 2010

Looks like quite a few nice competitions, including a bootblock compo... Stingray, go fractals v2?

I've booked cos it looks cozy, apparently 70% of the spots taken in a few days so...

If you want the real party, which as we know is outside, you may want to harbor a fetish for Swedish winter with snowfall and icicles But if you wanna just be a bore and code and talk to coders inside a warm room with snow falling outside the window, don't let me stop you

Anyway.

I have something in mind for the bootblock compo, it doesn't involve any fractals though.

Thx UpRough for a well organized party, cozy place and friendly professionals behind the bar and food counter I especially liked the lounge area with Amiga mags strewn on the sofa table and a cozy spot to have calm conversations with all the cool people, much better than sitting by the computer tables trying to scream above the partymusic, like on other parties, or having to stand outside in -6 to talk...

Missed you at the party Stingray

I hoped to meet The Big A of Phenomena, but he couldn't make it due to work. Crap!

Hilights from the party:
- Firefox! (cool chats and he even let me listen to one of the two tunes he made just before he quit the scene 20 years ago, how cool is that )
- Mahoney! (cool chats and two (2!) releases )
- UpRough 1 hour OCS MegaMix musicdisk
- flirty bar maids!!
- 2 Euro per beer and great healthy fresh food
nerd stuff:
- saw an ALDI C64...
- bought an Svideo mod for 10 Euro
- OCS chunkypixelmasters from Finland!
- #1 awesome sight: Rows and rows of Amigas with people using dpaint, protracker and AsmOne
- XCopy boing sounds on the big speakers

Hey those are reserved for our Phenomena Megademo II!!

(hehe, well I can dream, can't I?)

Ahem... hope I haven't stepped in it now, and it was a secret. At least I think he told other guys on the party... if you see this Jimmy and it was a secret, I'm really sorry.

But the best way would be for them to be released in a good demo \o\ /o/

Didn't meet them, but they showed a LOT of the game on the bigscreen, I think they played for an hour, maybe more

There are some pics of it in the galleries, but there were several people filming it. Oh well, if they haven't upped it yet, probably crew will up something soon at Magervalp's link so.
