Zenta 2022 - The once-in-lifetime post-christmas demoparty

category: parties [glöplog]
After this Christmas, join us for a very special demoscene event.

It's a tradition to have a demoparty between Christmas and New Year's Eve in Germany - this once used to be named "TuM", followed by "Under Construction".

However, for 2022 there will be a short interlude from this party series, with the Orga teams of Underground Conference and Under Construction bringing you are very special event: Zenta.

This is because we have managed to secure a location that we never before had been able to get hold of: The old "Palazzo" building in Bingen. Back in the 90ies this used to be one of the most famous Techno clubs of Germany. But since the city started a cultural war against techno in the early 2000ies, the building has been sitting there mostly unused.

Next year it will sadly be turned into a hotel. But we got a chance to book it for one final event before that happens.

And this is where Zenta comes into play.

In addition of having an amazing location surrounded by perfect infrastructure, Zenta is also bringing in a new concept: The location has two floors. The lower one will be where the hard action including laser shows will be. The upper part will be the Zen area, where there will be chill-out music, cuddly corners and a relaxed vibe.

The party is taking place in Bingen am Rhein, Germany. Bingen is close to Frankfurt Airport, and very well connected by Intercity trains. The central station is just a two minutes of walk to the party hall, and direct trains are available from Frankfurt Airport.

Check out the invitation demo:

We so far only have a rudimentary website online, details will follow soon:

International sceners considering to come, read this:

Bingen is located near the fake "Frankfurt Hahn" airport (only) served by Ryanair. You can get EXTREMELY cheap flight tickets to Zenta.

For example right now Ryanair flight prices to Zenta and back (return ticket are):

- London Stansted: 120 €
- Porto: 160 €
- Rome: 165 €

So go book your flight tickets while prices are low!

neoman: The pics posted on the website are just the beginning. Going to post a video of it soon. It's just fucking amazing.

nosfe: Why not organize a group trip and share cost? And there always is the social ticket...

If anyone is has any accomodation I can stay at after the party please let me know. I'm planning on booking an extended round trip via ryanair since that comes down to be a lot cheaper rather than just doing the days of the party itself. I'll likely travel in on the 26th or the 27th then return on the week of the 3rd of January.
You crazy son of a bitch... I'm in!

I remember never being able to visit the Palazzo back in the day. Was always quite disappointed to have missed my chance.

Not gonna miss this chance!

Assuming you mean the plural form, as it is usual for demoparties:
Yes! Expect more on that topic very very soon.

There is a 'AI reverse engineering' compo mentioned in the registration form.
Will there be more info on that? Sounds interesting.

You can get EXTREMELY cheap flight tickets to Zenta.

Just make sure you get the tickets to the right Zenta. Zenta is the Hungarian name of a Bingen-sized town in Vojvodina, Serbia, officially called Senta. But since 75%+ of the population are ethnic Hungarians, the Hungarian name is also widely used.

Luckily, Ryanair doesn't fly there. Probably. :P

As some hotels we have recommended have now increased prices, we have added a couple more recommended hotels and hints how to book them at a better price.

So if you are looking for a hotel room, please check out the updated page:

Charlie: haha, great story. Btw, there is also a second Bingen in Germany, so make sure to search for "Bingen am Rhein".
