THE DEAL

Up Rough Soundsystem, Genesis Project, Divine Stylers & SceneSat Radio once again invites you to DATASTORM, the ultimate winter party for people operating on machines with SOUL. It's going down on the the 4:th of February 2011 and keeps going until the 6:th of February 2011! Can you dig it? The massive success of last year is a fact! We are now northern europe’s largest Amiga-party and 2nd largest C64-party.. Last year the tickets was sold out during a couple of hours, so grab your space as soon as possible not to miss out the action, yes, we are serious!

Partylocation is as usual the city of Gothenburg at the swedish bestcoast - 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.

The party is held at the same venue as last time, an underground club hidden in an industrial complex close to the centre of the city. Being a former industrial building converted into a nightclub we can offer special features as industrial grade electrical systems providing all the current you could ever need.. Last year we had some problems with the heating which should be solved this time with some heavy hot-air blowgunz.

The Bar Mainhall #1 Chillout

FEATURES

The full-service concept which is the trademark for Datastorm includes personell working shifts in the mighty mighty bar & kitchen 24h through the whole party.. Our 1st grade cooks that will deliver vegetarian and non-vegeterarianbreakfast, dinner, and supper on announced times. When the special meals are not served, barfood like pizza, hummousrolls, falafel and kebab can be ordered at all times! Everything to a price that even the scener on a budget can afford! Of course you can also buy snacks, candy, tobacco, rizla+, earplugs and all other stuff a scener might need during the party.. And the coffee is free, so you don't fall asleep before your releases are finished in time for the competition!

For people who like lists we made this one with some of the most prominent features of the party..

MASTERPLAN

BATTLES

The mighty competition is being held at Saturday evening with the winners being presented after midnight..

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.

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 the same as last year. 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.

Voting is made on partyterminals or through the local wi-fi using a new built stable system made for the 2011 edition of Datastorm.. 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..

Gothenburg, Sweden

We have two 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.
