Edison 2012

category: parties [glöplog]

Short: Mixed platform party in Stockholm, Sweden, July 6-8.


We're back after last year's small but successful party! This time we have a much larger venue, and are working even harder to make sure all visitors will have a great time. We've got all of the regular newschool and oldschool competitions, beautiful scenery, and convenient travels.

Check us out!

unfortunately it's a bit too close to the date of Solskogen. Hard to use two weekends in a row for foreign demoparties money and time wise :(

waffle: We're aware of this unfortunate near-clash. Our only alternative was to not organize it at all...

It could make for a nice Swedish-Norwegian vacation, on the flipside. :-)

Hey everyone! We're currently at 95 pre-registered visitors, making this the largest party in Stockholm in 5 years. Woohoo!

Still there's plenty of room for more visitors, so don't hesitate to sign up. If you're travelling from abroad and are unsure how to get to the party please contact us and we'll work out a good solution.

You don't want to rename the party as "Tesla 2012" since Edison was a douchebag? :)

rez: The name's not referring to Thomas Alva Edison, but is in honour of Edison Denisov, the dissident Soviet composer who died in 1996.

No, seriously, it's just a name which stems from an accident with autocorrect and also happens to be a play on the fact that the party is organized by Evenemangsföreningen Demoscenen i Stockholm (EDiS).

Plus: Tesla worship is annoying. Good luck with your party, I can't make it but have fun :)
