It's the year 2009. While the global economy is celebrating its overly 
dramatic suicide, governments around the world build up a wall of fear 
to protect against an uprising of their own people. The thunder of the 
collapsing credit economy drowns out the sound of the hectic attempts 
to dismantle the values and freedoms once gained at great cost - 
creating a safe distance to those who have yet to realize their losses.

This makes it also hard times for the demoscene, an international group 
of young technology-focused artists.

Breakpoint, world's biggest family meeting for programmers, musicians and 
artists, always tried to be a bridge between the committed demosceners 
and the outside world, the IT industry and the electronic art scene. 
A bridge that now seems to lead into a dark abyss.

As you may have read, Breakpoint has lost its former main sponsors. In 
January 2009, when sponsoring deals got dropped and suddenly more than 
half of the party budget was missing, it seemed like Breakpoint would be 

But never underestimate the scene - thanks to a gigantic wave of support 
from the scene, tons of donations, and due to the hard work of the 
voluntary Breakpoint organizing team, we've made the impossible a reality: 
Breakpoint 2009 is going to take place. May the commercial world around 
is go down in flames, the demoscene sure won't. 

And what first looked like the end of Breakpoint may well turn out to be 
its finest hour. So yes, we'll have less budget, we had to cut on various 
costs - but we're still here, and we will kick some serious butt. We'll 
make sure that everything a scener could wish for will be present at the 
party - our gigantic FullHD projector that made its debut in 2008 will 
return, there will be tons of competitions, great outside fun, lots of 
cheap drinks and food, and you'll share your party with up to 1000 
creative participants from over 30 countries. So once again every scener 
in the world should know one thing for sure: This is the demoparty event 
of the year, and you just can not afford to miss it.
