24th to 26th May 2024.
A celebration of the Motorola 68000 CPU and its derivatives. Compo machines include Amiga, Atari ST, classic Macs, Sega Mega Drive, SNK Neo Geo, and more.
In addition to the usual computin' stuff, you also get to enjoy the beautiful Finnish countryside. There's going to be sauna and grilling, and you can also take a swim in the lake if you feel like it!
24th to 26th May 2024, at Aulangon Suuri Huvila, Hämeenlinna, Finland.
Info about the venue. There's a very limited amount of computer spaces available, and are on a first come, first served basis. Beds are available for most visitors (also first come, first served), and a hotel is only two kilometers away. Important: if you sleep at the party place, you need to bring your own bed linen!
The party place is easily reachable by car. You can also take the train to Hämeenlinna and then take a taxi to the party place.
Tickets are 60€ per person. Sign up by filling out this form.
Circa 60 tickets are available. Note that signing up does not guarantee you entrance to the party. We will contact you with payment information when your ticket is confirmed.

For any machine that’s not listed here, be prepared to either bring your own machine (with knowledge of how to make it work with an OSSC or similar) or provide a pre-recorded video of your productions. (mp4 format preferred) The latter is the safest bet. We may also pre-record demos for the compos, depending on technical limitations.
We cannot guarantee a compo stream, but we'll give it a try for sure. Be sure to subscribe to Dekadence's Twitch channel!
Please be respectful toward all party visitors. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other similar behavior will not be tolerated. You will be told to knock it off, and continued bad behavior will get you ejected from the party. In short, don't be a shithead, regarding anything.
All this is in addition to the rules of the venue itself and Finnish laws, which must also be followed.
We're all here to grill, chill, and have a good time!
