Ok so DATASTORM is over and we’re completely blown away by all the positive feedback! More than a few people say it’s the best demoparty they ever went to. Good to hear that our hard work with bizarre details paid off, even if some of you were a bit reluctant to submit your entry into Mr. Submission’s back parts…
So now we did two DATASTORMs in 7 months. The next DATASTORM will be in the summer of 2018, so there’s enough time for you to dive deep into your data and finish all those compo entries!
Finally, thanks to:

PEEEOPLEE ARE YOU REEEEEEAAADDYYYYYYYY!!!???
The music deadline is set to 20:00 on friday, submit by e-mail if you will not arrive on friday. We still got room for you, as we have doubled the party area with an outdoor tent and an outdoor bigscreen!
Challenge the World’s Strongest Woman in arm wrestling at DATASTORM for a chance to win eternal fame and glory… and a shot! Alexandra Dahlqvist is a local artist, dental technician and powerhouse with some serious muscle mass. But will it be enough to meet your smart ass sneaky technique and data biceps? We will see on Saturday!
Got unpreserved C64-floppies? Well, here’s a chance to get that precious data saved for the future. We (Dymo and Ca$h) will preserve the disks to digital *.d64-files. We can later upload unique finds to CSDB, of course considering material flagged as no-spread will be kept that way. The digital *.d64 disk images will be given to the disk provider, bring a USB-stick or something… E-Mail is also an option.
Elektron will give the winner of each music competition one of these beat making powerhouses!
Compact, rugged and to the point. Digitakt is a formidable drum machine and sampler. With an astounding feature set and an exquisite digital sound engine, the stage is set for a striking encounter.
Each one of these retails for 7600 SEK. Thanks a LOT to Elektron for this kind gesture!
Kirkulus will recap your C64 at DATASTORM. Price: 200 SEK. Talk to him at the party!
The Voodoo Lady will be at DATASTORM to tell your misfortune! For one hour on Saturday you’ve got the chance to meet the scene’s #1 fortune teller. Wow! Please sign up via e-mail to make sure you get a session. The Voodoo Lady operates exclusively on Saturday, 18-19.
Prowler donated some copies of The Masters of Pixel Art as prices in the graphics competitions.
He will also be present at the party selling the books and we are sure he will sign your book if you ask him.
Read more about the books here.
Thanks to Raycore who help us flying in legends and expanding the party, we can really focus on making this party a spectacular experience for everyone!

Tentakel is the explosive one-man cosmic kraut-dub-techno band that will take us into space after the Saturday competitions! From behind his drum kit, Tentakel delivers dreamy yet driving music that sometimes touches on the darker side of demoscene soundtracks. Tentakel also plays in bands such as Uran and Robert Leiner & the Source Experience for Höga Nord Rekords.
