Buenzli 18 Is History

We had a great weekend! Buenzli 18 is now history and was a success! There was not the usual amount of releases, but that’s only one part of a demoparty. Our visitors had (and that’s actual feedback) a great time and enjoy the weekend. From the organizational point of view, everything went smooth and fine and extremly stress-free. Get all the releases, results as well as photos, reports and videos from our little after-the-party-page. In a few days, we will also be able to publish videos of the OHP competition entries.

We would like to thank all visitors and contributors for their activism, their presence and the great mood you helped to createt! There’s nothing we hope more than seeing you again next year!

The T-shirts

The Buenzli 18 TShirtThe Buenzli 18 T-shirts have arrived and look extremly cool (yes!). We have made a small pre-sale tour at Evoke to see if the shirt will be a success and now feel like we’d have had to print more shirts than the total amount we got by now. Anyway, the shirt will be on sale at Buenzli 18 and if there’s something left it will be available from the Buenzli shop. The shirt is black (Fruit of the Loom) and designed by Genox. Available sizes are S, M, L, XL and Ladyfit M and S.

Combine the Fun!

Like every year, Buenzli and Evoke offer you twice the fun for not quite twice the price. If you plan to go to Evoke and Buenzli, you should think about buying the infamous "Combined Ticket". For only 55 Euros (instead of 65 Euros) you will be able to enjoy the compos of Evoke and Buenzli back to back.

So, if you are man enough to try this, mention that you would like to buy a combined ticket at the Evoke Infodesk and have your cash ready. Two weeks later, at the Buenzli Infodesk, show your Evoke bracelet and the ticket. And that’s it!

If you were not yet planning to go to Evoke AND Buenzli, isn’t this reason enough to think it over?!

Double News Feature: Remote Entries & Timetable

Remote Entries: We decided to allow so called remote entries to all our competitions. This means, that you don’t have to be at the party place to take part in our competitions (except for the OHP compo). On our compo page, we have enlisted the extended rules for remote entries for you. Be sure to enter that demo, game, image, tune or whatever you've got there in one of our competitions!

Timetable: A pretty evolved version of the timetable is now online. We'll adjust it further as needed. However, the deadlines seems fixed already. The deadline for all remote entries is the 15th of August. We'll soon announce a few events in detail that can already be found on the timetable.

Buenzli & Evoke Combined Ticket

August 2008 - time for two traditional SwissGerman demoparties: Just as in the previous few years, Evoke and Buenzli are supporting double-party-visitors, demoscene-summer-trippers and i-can't-get-enough sceners with a combined ticket. Evoke takes place just one week before Buenzli and is the place where you can buy our doubletrouble tickets which are then valid for Buenzli, too. The best thing about it: You get a discount on the regular entrance fee of both parties: The combined ticket is available for EUR 43.-.

How it works: At the Evoke entrance desk, you ask for the combined ticket instead of the regular Evoke ticket. One week later, at Buenzli, you show your ticket (which has a unique code printed on it) together with the Evoke bracelet and you're in.

Register yourself for Evoke & Buenzli now:
