At the end of the day, it’s about being with your friends – old and new. Talking, laughing and enjoying yourself. We have visitors from all around the world, and you should not be afraid of arriving without knowing anyone — at the end of the event it’s not unlikely you’ve made friends for life.

At one with nature – sort of

At Solskogen, we like to move away from the inner city. That is why we’ve always held the event somewhere with fresh air and trees nearby. You can even sleep in tents (though the tenting area is limited), and feel free to also bring your pimped out caravan or camper-van!

Awesome competitions

In the evenings there are compos – really awesome compos! Battle it out with your friends and foes in everything from graphics, music, demos, size-coding and more.


With hard beats and bass, the concerts at Solskogen are not to be missed! The Nordic Breakbeat Conspiracy fame will make the walls shake and your feet move!

Free BBQ for everyone

We’ve always been proud of our free BBQ feast on Saturday during the party, before the compo-night begins. It’s been a fixed feature since our first event in 2002 and this year is no different!

Why should I come to Solskogen?

Solskogen is an awesome demo party, and the only one held during the summer in Norway. We’ve been around since 2002 (that’s right, we’re oldschool) and we are hosting a wide range of competitions for all the active platforms, such as the Commodore 64, Atari, Amiga and PC.

You don’t have to be an active demoscener to attend – anyone interested in creative uses of computers are welcome! Solskogen is also the biggest demoscene event in Scandinavia.


It takes place in Flateby, just 35 minutes outside of Oslo (the capital of Norway) with steady and frequent public transport options.

I’m still not entirely convinced..

Need further incentives? Okay – free BBQ for everyone! That’s right: everyone who attends the party will not only get to hang out with awesome people for a weekend during the summer, but you’ll also get to attend the free BBQ feast we host on the Saturday during the party — the BBQ even features vegetarian options and dessert!

Awesomesauce, I’m so in!
