Underground Conference 10

category: parties [glöplog]
After half a year of love-cockfighting to get the location again after this years excess (complaints from a famous German TV cook not being able to land his helicopter as our main hall tent on his landing pad came as a surprise to him...) we've made it to get the grounds for a second time - the most beautiful demoparty location ever.

So here it is again, the one and only 4 day hardcore outdoor camping demoparty with a mind-boggling amount of completely overdone features nobody asked for. Proven to be very offensive in every possible regard, too: Voted most boycotted demoparty for 9 years in a row!

Save the date and get your vacation registered:

Thursday, July 9 to Sunday, July 12 2020, secret location near Bingen am Rhein, Germany.
(Yes, we are aware that this collides with Solskogen, and are sorry for that, but all other potential dates would have caused even more severe clashes.)

The offroad live shader coding compo is the real shit ;) never felt so sick in my life, and released the probably worst shader that was ever written, but still, this was a kickass compo :D

Will the famous German TV cook offer meals this time for the visitors?

as I saw quite enough German TV cooking shows to know most of them, was it Johann Lafer? :D

I think Spacepigs were able to predict Johann's attempts to land

We could hunt him down and let him cock for four Days ;)
I think the streetfood car we had at UC9 beats Lafer hands-down...

He could copter our beverages in... JOHANN! EIN BIER!

(indeed, the food car was great)

I know that a lot of people right now are worrying "will there be ANY demoparty in the nearby future that won't get cancelled"?

So to be clear here:

Underground Conference 10 is going to happen, no matter what. After all in case the world hasn't ended by then, we are the ones who need to make sure it does.


- This is a private property on private land
- It's a non-public invitation only event, so we will not asking for any permission by any authority.
- It's outdoor. While the corona virus may stay alive in the air for an hour, it does drop down and is blown away by wind
- The indoor area is a tent, which again has quite some air flow
- If measures are done in Germany as strictly as they've been implemented in China, the infection peak over here should be reached in about 6 weeks from now anyway. And probably at a certain point people will realize that digging your self in into a hole for multiple months is less fun than taking the minor risk of dying on a lung disease.
- As we have to soak nature inside the tent in chemicals anyway, we'll make sure to have 80% Ethanol/Water sprinklers raining on you and your computers every 5 minutes. We'll make a compo out of it.
- We don't give a fuck

Should you already have booked flights to Frankfurt for the next weeks, but only have the option to re-book instead of cancelling it, how about rebooking your flight for arrival on Thursday, July 9?

Official website launch is coming soon, with the Invitation demo scheduled to be released at Remotevision 2020 on Easter Weekend.

Not really on-topic, but: uuh, it's a virus. Viruses don't really live to begin with, they're a bunch of nasty molecules doing ugly things to your body cells (and sometimes hijacking them for replication), all sealed up in a soap bubble. So adjust your ways of "killing" it accordingly.

Good point, well made

While it would be absolutely great if we managed to defeat or at least contain Covid-19 by July and can have a party to celebrate that, I don't think it will happen. According to what I hear and find plausible, July may more likely be in the peak of the wave unless we get a lucky break of some form.

The main point of the current measures is to flatten the curve so that we hit the peak later (if we're GOOD at this, maxing out at case numbers where doctors don't have to make choices about who to treat and who to let die). Right before / in the peak is when the infection rate has (by far) the largest impact on the height of the peak.

I can understand that you want this party to happen, but saying "no matter what" and "we don't give a fuck" under the circumstances sounds contemptuous.

ah, July... by then we're out on the streets waving guns at each other for 1 meter of toilet paper!
