Welcome to Solskogen 2017!
With this, we open the doors to our new website, and the doors to Solskogen 2017 for everyone – Welcome!
We’re so happy to be able to provide the demoscene with yet another edition of Solskogen. We’ve had a good long think about what makes Solskogen great this time around, and we’ve tried to pick a few things up by the roots and put them down again with some fresh soil and great care. Therefore, not everything is exactly like we left it last time, but we hope all the little things we’ve changed, rethought, improved and retooled are even better. We’re looking at setting a solid foundation for the continued experience of Solskogen over many years to come.
There are a couple of new faces in the organizer team this year – faces you’re familiar with, but which will now be part of the team that makes sure everyone has the best time they can with us.
Things will look a little different outside, and things will look a little different inside. We’re organizing our space a little differently, in a way we hope will make more sense, and be a marked improvement. We’ll be providing some of our own ambiance, so our attendees can maximize their time enjoying themselves.
Friday will be VERY different, as we focus entirely on live competitions! We’ve enjoyed our foray into live coding so much, that we thought to ourselves – how can we have more of this amazing live competitiveness? The answer was as simple as it was obvious – so, graphicians and musicians – start honing those skills for a live showdown! We’ll present more information on just how these compos will shape up very soon.
And that’s not all: Lots of smaller things are being worked on. Little bits, that will add up to an even better experience for all.
Stay tuned for more news in the days and weeks to come, and we hope from the bottom of our hearts you’ll grace us with your presence at Solskogen. And bring your friends. :)
