THE DEAL

Up Rough Soundsystem, Genesis Project, Divine Stylers & SceneSat once again invites you to DATASTORM, the ultimate winter party for people operating on machines with SOUL.

It's going down on the 8th of February 2013 and keeps going until the 10th of February 2013!

The last few years of Datastorm speak for themselves - we are now northern Europe's largest Amiga/C64 party! Datastorm is the definite party for the oldskool crowd!

The party location that you have learned to love is there for you, in the city of Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. The city is easy to reach through two international airports, ferry, train and car.

The entrance fee is set to 300 SEK (~30E) (only Swedish currency accepted, ATM nearby), with dinner included on Saturday and breakfast included on Saturday and Sunday. Proper breakfast, good food, served by the bar personnel.

PARTYPLACE

The party is held at the same nice venue as always, 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 such as industrial grade electrical systems providing all the current you could ever need.

We have two maps for your party finding pleasure:

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

FEATURES

The full-service concept which is the trademark of Datastorm includes personnel working shifts in the mighty mighty bar & kitchen at almost all hours through the whole party. Our 1st grade cooks will deliver vegetarian and non-vegetarian breakfast, dinner, and supper on announced times. When the special meals are not served, barfood like pizza, hummus rolls, falafel and kebab can be ordered at all times! Everything for 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

Friday the 8th of February

Saturday the 9th of February

Sunday the 10th of February


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 at least 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.

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..

TRAVEL

By Airplane

Gothenburg has two airports, Landvetter Airport and Gothenburg City Airport (commonly known as Säve Airport). Get on the airport bus and hop off at the Nils Ericson terminal (end of the line). Take bus 16 from the stop Nordstan, just outside the terminal, to Lindholmen.

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 40 mins Gothenburg harbor sight-seeing) to "Lindholmen". Follow the map to the partyplace. (5 min 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 at the stop Nordstan to "Lindholmen".

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 at the stop Nordstan to "Lindholmen".

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, exit towards Nordstan. Get on bus 16 at the stop and go to Lindholmen.

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 yellow buildings 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

If you can't manage to sleep datastyle you can find nice and DATASTORM discounted rooms at Hotel 11 which provides all the luxury you can imagine. According to Bepp/Triad the breakfast buffet is worth the cash alone!

The special DATASTORM prices per room are as follows:
1 bed room: 750 SEK per night.
2 bed room: 800 SEK per night.
3 bed room: 1000 SEK per night.
4 bed room: 1200:- per night.
Suit for two persons (double bed): 1600 SEK per night.

To get the discount drop the discount code DATASTORM when you book your room!

If you want to come early (thursday) or want to stay longer (sunday night) you get the same discount, if you stay atleast three nights.

You need to tell the clerk the special datastorm rebate code that will be announced soon to get the discount.
