But if you buy your tickets in advance either directly from The Party or, if
you are living in Denmark, at the local postoffice through billetnet, the

DKK 15,- pr. seat at the entrance, but if you pay in advance directly to The
Party, then the fee will only be DKK 10,-
Please note that all seat reservations will only be valid until 14.00 on the

handed over to the police. This goes for both alcohol as well as drugs.
We will not accept any racist signs or acting, weapons, spraycans or
firework etc.
People who cause damages of any kind will ofcourse have to pay for it.
We take no responsibility for illegal swapping, or sale of software, hardware,
video etc.
We have made an agreement with the danish anti-priacy organization that they
will not bust the party, but instead host a conference on software piracy.
All demo's etc. from The Party since 1992 are available at our web site and at
The Summer Party 1996, both on the net and a few hours after the last deadline
on CD which will also include the demo's etc. from The Summer Party 1996.

the economy of The Party public and all of it will be available on the
web-pages a few days after The Summer Party 1996 has ended.
