ORGANIZED BY

THE DEAL

Up Rough Soundsystem, Genesis Project, PACiF!C and Divine Stylers once again invite you to DATASTORM, the ultimate demoparty for people operating on machines with SOUL. It’s going down on the 1st of September 2017 and keeps going until the 3rd of September 2017! The last few years of Datastorm speak for themselves – we are now the world’s best oldskool party! DATASTORM is the definite party for the oldskool elite! The party location that you have learned to love is back (yes, the exact same place!), in the city of Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. The city is easy to reach through two international airports, ferry, train or car. The entrance fee is set to 475 SEK (~€48) with a limited number of discounted early bird tickets (400 SEK/~€41) and is only available by pre-sale. Dinner included on Saturday and breakfast included on Saturday and Sunday. Proper breakfast, good food, served by the bar personnel.

THE PARTY PLACE

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:

GPS Locations: RT90
X: 6404797,
Y: 1269407 WGS84 Lat N 57° 42′ 31″ Lon E 11° 56′ 8″
Decimal: 57.7087, 11.9358
Street address: Karlavagnsgatan 13 Gothenburg Sweden

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 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…

A bar that is open almost all hours with full assortment of cheap beer/wine/softdrinks.

Two breakfasts and one dinner included in entrance fee, vegetarian alternatives available.

A variety of cheap barfood and snacks is available anytime.

Superchill environment with cozy furniture.

6 clean toilets. No queues! Never pee your pants! Freedom!

A very powerful nightclub soundsystem that delivers all the bass you can handle (and more)…

Cocktail data – we strive to get the perfect mix of socializing and computing! This time we will serve drinks as well!

DATAYARD

We’re expanding!

All your party needs will be fulfilled in our new DATAYARD! Big ass party tent, barbeque, bar, DJ, popcorn, big screen and perhaps some of you noticed the DATAVOLVO outside DATASTORM in February. But this time it’s in the back, fully de-pimped and ready for the future. In the car you’ll be able to time travel. Yes. Time travel! We’ll take you back to 1987.

COMPOS

The mighty competition is too mighty to deal with in one evening. The music competitions will be held on friday night. The rest of the competitions will be held on Saturday evening as usual with the winners being presented on Sunday… 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 exception to this rule is the music entries. You are free to submit these to us by mail if you will not make it to the party on Friday! However, if you don’t show up on the party on Saturday, your entry will be disqualified! The procedure of handing in your competition entries is as follows:

  1. Place your entries on a physical storage media. For Amiga we prefer 3.5″ floppydisks and CF-cards. For C64 we prefer USB drives or SD cards. For other formats we accept whatever media the particular backup unit is designed for (Flashcart/Floppys/CD’s). Floppies are kept so keep a backup. If you hand in expensive media (CFs/USB sticks/Laserdiscs) be sure to mark it up with your handle in order to get it back safely.
  2. Find yourself an application-form and fill it in with information about your release, specific routines for running it, what SID-chip should be used etc. One form per entry!

Deliver 1+2 to the compo crew.

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

From Landvetter 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:

http://www.stenaline.de/faehren/ http://www.stenaline.dk/faerge/

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.

Take a left to Lindholmen

Drive down Karlavagnsgatan (1)

Drive down Karlavagnsgatan (2)

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).

If you cannot handle heavy data noise and smell during nights you may enjoy the DATASTORM discounted rooms at Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel which provides all the luxury you can imagine.

Datastorm visitors will get a special deal at The Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel which is located close to the party.

However, we assure you that you will be perfectly satisfied with the in-house assortment of beverages which is served at a very reasonable price, a glass of wine is 25 SEK which is about 2.5 EUR. Because of this you have to be 18 years or older to enter the party. In order not to shut any young creative minds out from the action, we might grant access to the party for minors on a case-to-case basis, contact us about this if you are affected.

Smoke outside. Smoking is illegal in nightclubs in Sweden.
