Exactly 30 years ago, a huge demoparty took place for the first time in Aars, Denmark:
The Party!

And... it became legendary in the history. (thread)

@fenarinarsa WHAT THE FSCK IT HAS NOT BEEN 30 YEARS

FSCK

also hi I wish I'd been there

@Truck @fenarinarsa one of the first ones I went to was the NoCrew party over newyear 1990. I still have the t shirt from that party in the my drawer.

@loke @fenarinarsa I actually didn't get a shirt from my first party (Breakpoint, 2003.)

Why 2003? Because travel to parties in Europe was not something I could really do earlier. And the US or Canadian parties were... far away. Chicago->Quebec = distance, Chicago->San Diego = distance, and there were, you know. Very few people in the local area who could have done a party. Save Pyromaniac, who did them, but PC parties and ... yeah by the time we were talking he was in college and not local (: We finally met a week before I left for C attle. Just like how I saw Hardwired a week before I moved to Chicago, and all my friends in Akron said "OH. Now we get it. Yes. Let's make a demo!" (after YEARS of trying to get folks to work with me on a demo.)

Ah, such is my history with the scene (:

@Truck @loke We are a lot that couldn't afford travelling far back then :) My first party was the Crystal Summer Convention in 1992 (near Paris).

Then I went to CSC2 and all The Place to Be that took place in the South of France in the 1990s.

Then I went on hiatus of the scene and came back at Breakpoint 2008.

Actually my English was so bad before 2000 that I didn't even consider going to foreign parties ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
