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. Check our compos, rules and code of conduct. This year (2020) is our last event ever, and it’s going online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which means you’ll have to make your own compo-night-break-waffles. Luckily, we’ve included the recipe in the invitation demo!

Do I need a ticket to watch the stream?
No, but you do need one to submit an entry and to vote in the competitions. You can get one from here (and you can also pick up a supporter ticket that includes a t-shirt with shipping to help us out financially!)
What competitions are you hosting?
Short answer: all the ones you would expect. 🙂 Long answer: see the full compo list here!
Can I get a refund on my tickets?
If you had bought a ticket for Solskogen 2020 when we expected to host the on-location party, you will have already gotten several emails about this where you could opt to convert your ticket to an online ticket or to get a refund. Everyone who did not respond automatically got a refund. If you haven’t received one, check your bank statement, as it usually shows up after 5-10 days.
What payment types do you accept?
We use Stripe, so you can pay with all major credit cards, as well as Apple Pay. As mentioned, there will not be any tickets sold on-site this year, so make sure you get your ticket in advance.
Solskogen 2020 is held online this year. You can find all information about it on this website. We are hosting chats with the audience using discord, and we will be streaming via Twitch. More details to follow!
