Solskogen is a pure demoscene event that’s been around since 2002. We welcome all creative computer souls — young and old — to visit, compete in our compos, and generally have a great summery demoscene time!
We have a few special party features, such as the all-night live compos on Friday and the free BBQ feast on Saturday.
We are located at Flateby Samfunnshus, about 35 minutes outside of downtown Oslo, Norway, and our 2019 event takes place from the 12th to the 14th of July.
Do I need a ticket to attend?
Yes, and you should know that we’ve actually sold out the past few years, so if you plan to attend (as you should), you’d better get your ticket early.
What compos are you hosting?
Short answer: all the ones you would expect. 🙂 Long answer: our full competition list will be published soon.
Can I arrive on Thursday before the party begins?
Yes, you can! However: no service will be offered on Thursday since the party doesn’t officially start until Friday. This means that you should be self-sufficient in terms of food and such.
What about accommodation?
Most of our visitors sleep in tents in the forest or near the venue, or inside in our sleeping quarters downstairs. There are also hotels in Lillestrøm (20 minutes away) as well as multiple Airbnb options nearby.
Can I get a refund on my tickets?
We don’t offer refunds on tickets, sorry. If you have ordered a t-shirt and are unable to attend Solskogen, we’ll do our very best to have the t-shirt reach you by sending it with other participants that are going your way. We can also ship them in the mail but at a minor extra cost.
What payment types do you accept?
We use Stripe, so you can pay with all major credit cards. You can also pay with credit cards and cash (EUR or NOK) on-site.
