Black Valley 2022 - 15-17. July - Kruttverket, Oslo, Norway

category: parties [glöplog]
Norway's new summer party is coming up soon! We recently announced the competitions you can partake in. Since this is our first edition and we are a super small crew it's not a super long list of compos, but there should be something for anybody to compete in!

We will keep you guys posted on our website, social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) and here about ticket sales, timetable and other important things to know!
Looking forward to it. It's literally within walking distance from my home, which is a first!

Would be nice to know just a bit more soon about the schedule (any thirsty arrivals for instance?) for booking flights, and sleeping options.

Hey, sorry for taking a while to respond. Due to some local laws and venue details, Black Valley will have a few unfortunate limitations:

  • There will be no sleeping at the venue, and the venue is closed for visitors after 01:00 in the night. This is sadly a legal requirement, because the venue has a liquor license. This means that you'll have to make your own sleeping accommodations. There's some hotels nearby, and several Oslo sceners live in the area.
  • You can't bring your own drinks into the venue. Again, this is because they have a liquor license. There's a cafeteria with a bar, where you can bring food and drinks into the hall, and we're considering setting up a dedicated bar in the entrance area for the Saturday.
  • Due to limited space, we've decided to focus more on compo-viewing seats and less on computer seats. This means most people will not get a table for their stuff. We don't plan on a reservation system, but we kindly ask you to prioritize people who are working on contributions.
  • As a result of the above, we've consider it unlikely that a lot of guests would want to show up on Sunday just for a prize giving ceremony. So we'll do that last thing on Saturday, and we've decided to not rent the hall for the Sunday. This means that people might need to pack down their equipment on Saturday evening.

We're sorry about this, but we hope it will still be nice to have an in-person party this year, and we'll work to find better solutions for future events.

One thing Erik forgot to mention is that there is a limited amount of tickets available for the party, since the venue isn’t the biggest.
Our schedule is now online!
