Flashback 20/20, 30th Jun 20

Event postponed to 2021

A lot is going on in the world and due to the current situation we see no other option than to postpone the event until June 26 and 27 of 2021; a full year after the original date for the event. All tickets will remain valid for the new dates.
Even though the measures in the Netherlands are less strict than was the case in the previous few months, there are a lot of things we – as organizers of an event of substantial size – need to consider and guarantee. The biggest impact on the event is, of course, the social distancing; those rules still apply and in fairness to you, our visitor, our event just wouldn’t be the same with these rules in place.
Another big reason is that we are organising an international event; we have speakers and guests flying in from all over the world including from some countries where the situation is currently a lot worse than here. It would be unfair and unjust to rob those people of the chance to participate what (still) promises to be the best retro-computer themed event in years.
We would have loved to organise Flashback 20/20 feat. Amiga 35 this year – unfortunately, Corona got in our way. The last thing we wanted to do was cancel the event, so we prepared a backup plan… twice! We now look forward to seeing you next June and hope you still are as committed as we are. We understand this change in schedule may result in people wanting a refund for their ticket(s) – for those who are willing to do so, we’ve setup a special page.
We will make sure that we use the extra time between now and June 2021 to prepare for an even better event!

Xenium 2020, 10th Jun 20

Xenium 2020 postponed

The investigation continues.

There is so much evidence to process, so many suspects to question.
We will present our findings in 2021.

We are very saddened and sorry to postpone the party, but given the current Covid-19 situation, we have a strong understanding that being able to organize a SAFE party this year is impossible.

We also believe that Xenium Demoparty is and always will be about the people / for the people - thus, an online edition wouldn't really fit our mission statement. Therefore we've decided not to push for an online edition.

Stay safe! We are looking forward to seeing you all next year.

And in the meantime if you come over "Drzwi Zwane Koniem" in Katowice/Poland - eat something tasty, have a drink, listen to music and enjoy the premises - to support our hosts & friends of the demoscene (the pub/restaurant and the owners of the building).

Evoke cancelled: watch out for Novoque

Dear friends of evoke,

we have decided to cancel the party for this year.

As predictable as this decision may have been, we did not take it lightly. All possibilities were carefully considered - but due to the current situation, we would not be able to deliver the "evoke feeling"(TM) for which all of you have been attending the party since 1997.

Although there is still a lot of uncertainty today as to how the situation will develop until August, we are quite sure that some restrictions will remain - preventing evoke from being evoke.

But we of course do not want to keep you and us from at least enjoying some time together. We have enthusiastically followed the ideas other parties have come up with to create new online spaces, and we want to add our part to this new party experience.

Therefore, on Saturday, August 15th, we will offer you a live event - "novoque", a virtual stage for all the love you have brought to evoke for over 20 years.

So, stay tuned! You will hear more about it soon.

Stay healthy and happy!

Thank you,

Your evoke Team
