Enjoy the Sunday while browsing demoparty-related materials: flyers, wristbands, votekeys, posters etc. from over three decades! The oldest object is from 1992, the latest is just one day old (from Mountainbytes in Switzerland which took place this weekend). Contributions this time stem from Cthulhu, Dipswitch, JAL, and Moon.

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.
