PREFACE

Sweden has since 1998 been blessed with the world's greatest summer party, Little Computer People, delivering hot data action for the oldskool crowd year after year. While we are grateful to the Hack'n'Trade posse for having us boozing, computing, and socializing each year, we curse them for the hardcore one year data-abstinence they inflict upon us inbetween each party...

Since we obviously can't get rid of the addiction, we have now decided to accept it and even take it to the next level by doubling the dose! The winter-time withdrawal syndromes has finally come to an end for all you oldskool fanatics: The absolute swedish elite has gathered to bring you the best fucking fix of Amiga/C64/Console axxion ever!

THE DEAL

Up Rough Soundsystem, Genesis Project, Divine Stylers & SceneSat Radio hereby invite you to DATASTORM 2010! The ultimate winter party for people operating on machines with SOUL. It's going down on the the 5:th of February 2010 and keeps going until the 7:th of February 2010! Can you dig it?

Partylocation is the city of Gothenburg at the swedish westcoast - the stronghold of the swedish amigascene. The city is easy to reach through two international airports, ferry and train.

The entrance fee is set to 200 SEK (~20E), with dinner included on Saturday and breakfast included on Saturday and Sunday. Only swedish currency accepted.

PARTYPLACE

You know that when we do stuff, we do it right, and this time we have put in extra effort to make that dreary weekend in February something special. The party will be hosted at a night club in an industrial complex, close to the centre of Gothenburg, providing that special mix of roughness and cozyness that we all love. In addition to the tables on which to put your real hardware on, although we allow laptops for cross-dev purposes, we have lounge areas with cozy sofas and arm chairs where you can comfortably sit around and talk about that new cruncherroutine you've been working on for the last decade or whatever...

The Bar Mainhall #1 Chillout Stage
Mainhall #2 The Bigscreen Crackers Corner Chillout #2

This is where it's all happening. Other parties are struggling to get a cozy feeling. We have it from the start. Just add computers. Notice that the partyplace is still being built on these photos and will be finalized with proper lush lightning in time for the party..

FEATURES

Having the party at a nightclub is something special. The greatest difference from other small parties is that DATASTORM will feature a proper bar with service-minded personnel that works as long as people are awake and will serve thirsty party freax with an endless supply of beer, wine, and softdrinks. But a party is not just about drinking right? We also hired some cooks that will deliver vegetarian and non-vegeterarian breakfast, dinner, and supper on announced times. When the special meals are not served, barfood like pizza, hummousrolls, falafel and kebab can be ordered as long as the bar is open. Everything to a price that even the scener on a budget can afford! Ofcourse you can also buy snacks, candy and tobacco at all times. And the coffee is free, so you don't fall asleep before your releases are finished in time for the competition!

Here is a list with all features of the party, more stuff might be added in the future so stay tuned!

BATTLES

The mighty competition is being held at Saturday evening with the winners being presented after midnight.. Stay tuned for the announcement of compo-prizes!

The atmosphere when all competitors are present during the compo is unbeatable. Therefore we do not allow remote entries which means that atleast one of the authors of an entry must be present at the party. However, we do allow (and even encourage!) snail mail entries in the Packdisk Open contest, see below for further details.

The procedure of handing in your competition entries is as follows:

The deadline for handing in compo entries is preliminarily set between 15.00 and 18.00, Saturday evening. The voting procedure is similar to the one in use at LCP. In short, each entry is given a score from 1 (very bad) to 10 (excellent). Blank votes are also allowed, and are ignored when calculating the average score. This means that entries that don't get enough votes might be biased, so if an entry gets less than 10 votes it will be excluded from the results (this is just to guarantee the fairness of the compo, in practice it has never been a problem at LCP).

Voting is made on votedisks that will be handed out after the compo. Grab a disk and vote on your own computer, or use one of the public voting terminals. After the voting the disks are collected and the score is automagically calculated. We reserve the right to reject lame attempts to manipulate the compo in a negative way (such as voting 1 for everyone else, and 10 for yourself).

We reserve the right to merge compos if we don't get enough entries and split compos if we get enough entries for new categories in addition to those listed below.

If your platform is not listed among our compomachines YOU are responsible for making your work display properly on the bigscreen. Please also let us know beforehand if you are going to bring exotic hardware..

MAPS

We have three maps for your party finding pleasure:

Bus routes are indicated in yellow, ferry routes in blue, and car routes in pink.

TRAVEL

By Airplane

Gothenburg has two airports, Landvetter Airport and Gothenburg City Airport. If you're arriving at Landvetter, get on the airport bus and hop off at Kungsportsplatsen. Switch to bus 99, go across the bridge, and hop off at Lindholmen (see the yellow line on the map).

If you're arriving at Gothenburg City Airport (commonly known as Säve Airport), get on the airport bus and hop off at Hjalmar Brantingsplatsen. Take bus 31 or 99 to Lindholmen (again, see the yellow line on the map).

By Boat

If you're traveling from Denmark or Germany, you can usually get a good price on the ferries. Prices and schedules can be found on the Stena Line home page:

For people arriving from Denmark

Walk along the road right outside the terminal towards the city for about 10 minutes, sooner or later you'll end up where the ferry "Älvsnabben" stops. Take the right ferry (pick the wrong one for some 40mins Gothenburg harbor sight-seeing) to "Lindholmen". Follow the map to the partyplace. (5min walk).

If you arrive late in the evening the ferries won't be available. If that is the case, just walk over the bridge that is connected to the terminal to the other side of the big road where you will find a tramstop. Take line 3/9/11 to "Brunnsparken". Get on bus 16 or 99 to "Lindholmen" (yellow on map).

For people arriving from Germany

When you come out from the terminal, take the road going to the right and walk down to the water. You'll spot the "Älvsnabben" ferrystop quite easy. Take the ferry (there is just one ferry going from this stop) to "Lindholmen". Follow the map to the partyplace (5min walk). If you arrive late at night or don't like ferries for whatever reason, just follow the signs to "Chapmans Torg" from the terminal and take tram 3/9/11 to "Brunnsparken". Get on bus 16 or 99 to "Lindholmen" (yellow on map).

By Bus

If you're traveling by bus, you arrive at the Nils Ericsson bus terminal. Walk over to the train station next door, and follow the directions from there.

By Train

After arriving at the Centralstationen train station, take the main exit west, leading down under the road, and into the Femman shopping center. Walk straight through, and as you exit you have a bus and tram stop on your left, named Brunnsparken. Get on bus 16 or bus 99, and go to Lindholmen (yellow on map).

By Car

If you're traveling by car, you will be arriving on the E6, either from the north or from the south.

By Car, E6, traveling south

Take exit 76, towards Norra Älvstranden Note that it goes parallel with the E6 for a few hundred meters, inside a concrete barrier. Once you're up off the E6, keep left and keep following signs to N Älvstranden.

The party is at the end of Karlavagnsgatan in the small yellowbuildings with red roofs.

By Cab

Just tell the driver to take you to "Karlavagnsgatan on Lindholmen". If the driver don't know where that is just say "tramstop Lindholmen" and walk the remaining 100 metres from there (check the map)..

Parking

There is space for around 5-10 cars to park for free right outside the partyplace. There is also an unlimited amount of parking nearby, just look at the map.

Hotels

Pussies and old farts who can't manage to sleep datastyle can find cheap rooms at Kvillehotell which is a short busride from the partyplace.

For the posh pussies and the real hustlas' Hotel 11 provides all luxury you can imagine.
