There will be some small space to install your Laptops ( please dont bring your MEGA Equipment to this party ) and work on your prods.

During the day we might hold some fun compos and a Beach soccer / Beach volleyball contest for the sporty sceners. Also a "who can do the biggest bomb into the pool" is something you can expect :)

Finally we gonna enjoy some DJ-Setups and having last drinks after ...

The Bar will be open from morning till late night and serve you with Beer, Wine, Alcoholfree Drinks and snacks and meals during this weekend.

Wow, that's... different.

Everyone seems too love the new location, but I feel like I will miss my big "main" french demoparty, with big screen, big sound, big computers, (big geek attitude fuck yeah o/)...

Anyway, thumb up for the bold move.

This is going to be very nice. I'll be there for sure. I'm sorry Outline organizers - but the south of France beats the Netherlands in october by a large margin :)

my parents are living next to Avignon. If possible, we (me and gf) will pay you a visit.
So demos are going to be projected on the swimming pool?
