32 Years of Computer Parties

Today, we present you with artefacts from 32 years of copy- and demoparties – from 1987 to 2019! Quite an astonishing time span, longer than the life span of some current demoscene members. The scans stem from the collections of Acidchild & Bugjam, AD aka Rough, Dipswitch, Goat, Ile, Mike, Moqui, Sir Garbagetruck, Swiss Cracking Association, The Movers, and X-Raffi. Some fascinating documents and objects are included – such as the paper invitation to the legendary Danish Gold 1987 party, where the first cracker standards were established; the flyer for the Beach Party 1992 which was cancelled at last minute; the invitation for the Bitnapping Party 1988 which was one of the very rare cooperations between German hackers and crackers; and many more. You can browse them in the gallery below, but first here are the links to the hi-res scans and metadata in party date order:
