News in August 2018
As an organizing team we would like to thank everyone who made Evoke 2018 possible: all the nice visitors, those who contributed to the competitions, the mind blowing live acts and inspiring speakers!
Evoke 2019 is already scheduled: mark the 16th to 18th of August in your calendar.
Meanwhile we would like to see you again at one of the other great demoparties. And thanks again for another great edition of Evoke!
It took a while, but finally there are fresh pictures from Outline 2018, Nordlicht 2018, Evoke 2018 and some more pictures from Revision 2018 by dojoe, T$ and yours truly. Enjoy!
Everything is build up, the first visitors are paying their entrance fee: Evoke 2018 is live!
If you would like to follow the party we have set up a live coverage page for your pleasure.
This year we will stream our events with twitch (in cooperation with SceneSat). Beneath that we have some official twittering by us plus your thought on the party (use the #evoke2018 hashtag). In addition the page features the upcoming events from the timetable plus #evoke2018 photos from Instagram.
And don't forget to add our ical calendar to your favorite calendaring software to keep up with what is happening at Evoke. We will try our best to update it when bigger delays should occur.
Already on your trip to Evoke? Just arrived at the party place? Making progress on your release? Let the world know!
Posts and images tagged this way might show up on our social media wall (the small screen on the right side of the main screen). So do posts to the pouet oneliner (find out) or to our irc channel.
In recent years Evoke has had issues with scaling the bandwidth for our Internet connection; the venue has only been able to deliver a single 2 Mbit/s connection. Luckily, we've been getting help from Viprinet, who has been able to combine all available LTE networks into single faster one, giving us a way better internet connection so far. If it hadn't been for their help, all Evoke visitors would have had to share the same 2 Mbit/s connection!
But this year the Evoke location, AbenteuerhallenKalk, has finally been connected to Netcologne's fiber network, providing us with a much faster connection. But the good news don't stop here... Netcologne has also stepped up as a sponsor, and has decided to splice in a few additional fiber cables, and bumping Evoke's internet connection up to a massive 1 Gbit/s!
So this year we will hook up that 1 Gigabit to the Viprinet setup for extra redundancy.
To make a long story short: Everyone should be excited about that extra bandwidth that we got through being hooked up to Netcologne's Corporate/Giga network.
Thanks a lot Netcologne.

Come by their party table to check out their new stuff or just for a chat. Two new designs and several new variations upon two of their classics will be available for the first time at the party!
This years trophies for the competition winners will be as unique as their releases. Sensenstahl teamed up with Chunna and Der Andere and together that came up with the design for our one of a kind trophies.
Do you remember Sensenstahl's Revision release "Blocker"? The Evoke trophies are made the same way but this time everything is made out of marble.
Tropical Trevor will show us some insights about how Poo-Brain made their price-winning 64k demos. He will live showcase the tool "SrqMelon", that he built for making the demos. The tool is meanwhile open-source, so joining this seminar will be a good invest for all the people who want to make demos.
As Evoke 2018 is just a few days ahead, we can present you today with the complete musical programme. In addition to the acts we announced during the previous weeks, we'll have local bass music DJ Bassador, demoscene veteran DJefke, and Evoke residents Black Maiden Hi-Fi shaking your heads and feet. See you in a couple of days!
Evoke 2018 will have everything your BBQ needs. Here are artists making snacking the wurst or the beer or the bread with veggie inside much, much more fun.
The music session is a Cologne artist exploration. The music stage will be pleased by Nodepond doing just the right amount of weirdness, Damian T. Dziwis exploring music and code with one line of code, you will love. After that, Eric Svensen will take on and prepare this still young Saturday close to a techno explosion before compo time!
Take me to the events.
We are very happy to announce our musical headliner for the compo night: Wintermute from Leipzig/Germany, a renown drum'n'bass DJ and producer who released on some of the scene's biggest labels such as Blackout Music and Cause4Concern, but also on the demoscene-related netlabel NoSYS Productions. Expect a set of techno- and soul-influenced drum and bass, meandering between high-tech funk and ambient explorations. Read more info on Wintermute here.
Demos are made for the big screen! And that’s why we will bring you a highly curated list of demos to show.
This years demoshow has a special place. Right between the semi-finals and the final of the Shadershowdown.
Recovering from the first round, getting ready for the finals, recover and get hyped for fridays highlight by watching a demo, having a beer!
You can expect a mixed bag of demos: brand new, top of the class, forgotten ones and hidden gems.
After last year’s success faxe and dino decided to do a pre evoke stream again. To get hyped for this year’s edition we invite you to watch the highlight of our 20th birthday again. Join us on Twitch [https://www.twitch.tv/evoke] Sunday the 12th of August at 20:00 CEST. Let’s hang out in chat, have fun, share memories and get ready for evoke 2018 together.
