Party

About

For more than 20 years we enjoy some days of summer in (or near) Cologne. Join us in our annual celebration of Demos, Intros, Wilds and the Demoscene in general in Köln-Kalk. Like the previous years we will again meet up in the AbenteuerhallenKALK on the weekend from 17th to 19th of August to enjoy digital art, music, the barbecue and (last but not least) the company of all you folks that share the same mind.

Entrance

The regular ticket is available at 35 Euro. You can buy it at the door or in advance with a print@home ticket. There are no single day tickets, and no rebates if you come earlier, later or without a computer. Please notice that this is neither a gaming event nor a leech/copy party. If these are what you are looking for, you better stay at home.

Long distance discount

If you happen to travel more than 700 km to Evoke you qualify for the long distance discount. We only can grant you this discount if you apply for it in advance. Please use the contact form.

Supporter Ticket

You can buy a supporter ticket if you'd like to help Evoke. You will receive a correct invoice for your payment and a shirt once you arrive at the party. The price for the ticket is 200 Euro. Either contact us in advance if you would like to buy this ticket. Or you can order the ticket in advance.

And if you consider helping us even more, you could become a sponsor, which would make us very happy. In this case please contact one of the main orgas.
