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:

Party Invitations, 1987-2000

Some copyparty/demoparty materials this time – from the vaults of Acidchild & Bugjam, Arny, Ghost, Jugger, Lance, and Swiss Cracking Association. Included are party invitations from Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Hungary, Switzerland, and Poland. There are some really rare 1980s invitations, including copyparties that are not documented in any scene databases yet – and also some known, yet legendary ones, like the invitation flyer for the first The Party in Denmark in 1991.

Loads of Demoparty Stuff

For those readers who like to see more recent scene-related stuff, and inspired by the Revision demoparty last weekend, I decided to go through the large queue of demoparty-related contributions from the past three years. Here is the result – over 50 demoscene artefacts, contributed by Azzaro, Ctulhu, Dipswitch, and JAL. Enjoy flyers, timetables, writsbands, votekeys etc. from demoparties of the last two decades in a number of countries, from Finland to Hungary, from the USA to Russia. Also, there are some additional flyers and stickers. And next time we’ll be back with 1980s’ letters again.
