|»We are very happy to announce that Flashback 20/20 featuring Amiga 35 will host it’s very own demoparty!
Two days to explore escapades of creative computing underground and how the demoscene contributed to the retro-computing history. The DESiRE team and friends are proud to have their own little demo cave at Flashback 20/20 and allow the visitors to get acquainted with the demoscene and creative computer art.
The demoscene is all about exploring the quirks specific to a certain type of hardware, regardless if that’s a C64, an Amiga or an IBM PC. The active groups then compete with their impressive demos comprised of their own graphics, music and code on the targeted platform. The thrill comes from creating things with computers rather than simply playing games on them. And although the demoscene can be seen as competitive, the demoscene members are actually friendly people: don’t be afraid to visit and say hello!«
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!
