Gerp is a traditional demoparty that is being held in Skövde/Sweden from the 21st to the 23rd of august 2015. The party has a focus on the oldschool platforms and historically it has especially been a stronghold for the Amiga demoscene. The party is organized by the demo crews Nature (Amiga), Traktor (Amiga & MSX) and Fatzone (Commodore 64). The entrance fee is 100 SEK or 150 SEK depending on if you pay before or at the party.
This time we will be right in the middle of Skövde at the local culture centre (in the hall named 'Freja'). This means that you will find hotels, restaurants, bars, supermarket etc all within a few minutes of walking! The closest hotels are located just around the corner and the railroad/bus station is right across the street. At the party there will be room for about 100 people.
The street address is 'Trädgårdsgatan 9'. Once you arrive at the culture centre look for the entrance towards 'Freja', located at the north-east side of the building. At the map below we've marked out the party location along with other good-to-know locations.
