PARTY

Big Floppy People 2006
Party

About

When?: 14.00 Friday July 28 -> 12.00 Sunday July 30, in the year of the holy kalsong 2006. Where?: Helsingborgs Mjölkcentral, Mejerigatan 0, Helsingborg, Sweden. After previous years parties in nightclubs we take it one step further, moving to a industrial complex. We are going to worship our blue screens in an old milkfactory that closed down in 1992 and was recently taken over by the former TipTop crew (who also hosted the previous Floppy party place). If you have been to Floppy or LCP before, this place is quite different. The building was constructed in 1960 and is rough enough to handle any databoy, but yet stylish in a swedish funkis kinda way. Unlike LCP or Floppy this place is a bit off from the citycentre making the experience even more disconnected from day to day reality. Sign up: Send a mail to frantic@lcp.c64.org Invitro: Get the C64 invitro (d64) or read below... How to find?: If you come by car or bicycle, check maps at www.eniro.se. We have very good free parking possibilities all around the partyplace. If you come by train or ferry you just take a 10 min cab or CityBus #3 (towards Västergård) from the station to Mejerigatan. If you come by aeroplane, you also go to the Helsingborg Centralstation (called Knutpunkten) first, and catch a cab or bus up to the place. If you teleport yourself, don't forget the yellow brills! Why?: Last year (2005) Frantic did the last LCP at Skylten in Linköping and moved down to Lund in the south of Sweden, and during the same year the TipTop club in Helsingborg closed forever, So something FRESH was bound to happen. The idea to clash our parties together has been around since the last LCP, and it may be a one time experiment event in 2006, or not, so you better grab hold of your balls if you got any, and direct the pointer to Helltown this summer. Entrance Fee: For only a hundred swedish zloti's you will be transformed into a zombie. (No need to pay in advance.) Comfort & health: Hard floors, No showers, Few toilets. Big Floppy People will not, and shall not, be a healthy event. In fact, we embrace the filth of computer culture. You choose to live the data wildlife. And so do we. Formats: c64, Amiga, Atari, Spectrum, anything low-tech. Dont bring your ugly laptop unless you code and simply cannot do without. Features: The best from both LCP and Floppy. The breakfast saturday morning, The HT Crew messing about with the bigscreen and soundsystem, nonstop Freestyle Demo-DJ'ing with everyone behind the drives. Soundmats of blips and blops, a superb stench of men who sweat infront of electromagnetic fields, people going -woOOhh! around some table as some coder show sneak previews of new parts, tour de france joystick shaking madness, well, you know the score. Afterall, its mostly you, the guest that creates the party. We just steer up a place where you can make it happen. (Although, of course, we're doing our best to make you smile.) Compos: C64 Demo/Music/Graphics, Amiga, Atari, SNES, Gameboy, Spectrum, + more sick shit. Saturday at midnight MC Frantic vs S.A.M with Floppy + HT Crew behind the machines will unleash contributions in a wild mix of chaos and ordnung. We will supply two c64's with 6581 SID and 8580 SID respectively. There will also be an Amiga there for modplaying and graphics. If you are planning to release a demo we encourage you to bring your own machine. This also goes for other platforms. Contact us if you've got questions about these kind of issues. Compodisks are kept. We totally refuse to take compo entries from people not present, so you better be there when it happens. Not just because you want to participate, but because it's a special feel when all the combatants share the same room during the premiere show. If you've got other stuff you want to release at the party - like music disks, tools, games and stuff like that - feel free to hand it in to us, and we'll make it available among the releases from the party. So you better start working on your entries right now! Food & Drink: Within a 1km distance there is a supermarket, a burger grill, a MC Donalds 24h Restaurant, several 24h petrol stations, a couple of pizzerias, a takeaway thai restaurant etc.. and in the same building there is a catering-service that can throw good homemade food at you if you pay them a little money. Rules: Smoke outside. Buy & Sell: We encourage people to bring stuff just lying around in the basement. Chances are someone will appreciate it, a lot! It's a good opportunity to exchange stuff without the hassle of shipping stuff all over the world. Contactz: ...and the organizers themselves of course.
