WHAT?: Triad, Judas, Hack&Trade & Laxity invite you, weirdo with old computer, to the second BFP Data-Party in Helltown!

WHEN?: Friday July 27 (12.00) - Sunday July 29 (12.00)

WHERE?: Helsingborgs Mjölkcentral, Mejerigatan 0 (yes, zero), Helsingborg, Sweden.

INVITRO: Get the c64 invitro here!

WHY?: Because we like to gather sweaty datanerds, sleep on cold concrete floors, gaze at big pixels and fill our ears with lots of squelchy analogue sid-sounds, because.. well, we dont need to tell you this. You know the shit. We set it up, but YOU make it happen.

2007-08-13: Added the Atari compotune by Orbiter and Timbral to the archive today. Enjoy.
2007-07-31: ...and of course, you should check out all the photos added to the archive by now, available both as zips and directly browseable.
2007-07-30: Ooops! Only one of two disksides of the 64DTV demo were included in the archive yesterday. That is fixed now. Also added some photos and video clips from BFP. Send me more!
2007-07-29: Back home... Party over! Thanks to all of you for a GREAT party! We (the organisers) had a totally great time ourselves. Actually, we thought the vibe was so close to perfect data harmony that we deliberately chose not to impose a lot of "party features" like having game compos and so on in order not to disturb the free flowing activity and madness. We hope that this suited you too. In any csae, let us hear what you thought about the event and also, if you took photos during the party, send them here so we can put them in the BFP/LCP/Floppy archive. Thanks!

The official results and C64, 64DTV and Amiga compo stuff are available here:


We're still waiting for Orbiters/Timbrals Atari tune and the Gameboy tune in native format, to be sent to us. (Timbral+Orbiter and dubmood, please get back to us on this mail address.)

Ultima III Gold and a old previously unreleased Triad demo were released outside compos and can be found here.

Special thanks to Magervalp and Mogwai (and many others really) for their support.


2007-07-26: I (Frantic) am leaving for the partyplace now and won't update the homepage anymore. If you're not signed up and still want to come, then you're very welcome to do so! SEE YOU AT BFP!!!!!!!! :)
2007-07-24: Another party feature: Gunne from GGS data will show up on saturday (95% sure) and sell some of his commodore stuff.
2007-07-19: About one week left now! Hoho! Added a preliminary party schedule to this page. Also added a note from Johey on the cooperative travelling section that might be of interest for those who wants to go from Stockholm to BFP.
2007-06-10: Oh YES! Another NICE party feature announced today: Mogwai, alias DATA DOCTOR alias Eternal Hero of Data, will bring all his computer fixing tools and skills to BPF and will be able to help YOU out with your broken hardware. This may be your chance to fix that old broken [something], or at least get to know what's wrong with it. Note that there is no guarantee that Mogwai will have the time to check what you bring (perhaps it isn't even likely), so don't get disappointed in that case. Just consider it as a huge bonus in case he fixes some of your stuff. He is surely capable of doing that!
2007-05-28: ...and just when you thought you were safe and all that, Jucke confirmed that he will get to your heads with a nice BFP Live version of "Jucke's ExperiMENTAL Sidshow"! Furthermore, Goto80 (+ support) will perrrrrrrforrrrrrm his Ghetto SID Paranoia Muzak live for you.
2007-05-21: HCL was the 64:th dude to sign up for BFP. He won a insterstellar trip to the Andromeda Galaxy and double votepower in the compo! Congratulations! Apart from this, we started working actively with party features of various kinds now. Stay tuned for info about such things!
2007-04-19: People keep signing up in a steady stream, which is NICE! Added some BFP2006 pictures from Shastar to the archive today. View here.
2007-04-12: ...and the number of visitors already exceeded the 4-bit range!
2007-04-12: Site launched and c64 invitro released. Go go!
PARTYPLACE: The old milkfactory proved to be a good venue for databoys, so we've booked it again. Before BFP2006 we asked ourselves, "is this place too rough?" but within less than a cpu cycle we remembered that our guests are simply the toughest of data people and will get to grips with any situation, and so you did. Since the raw year of 2006 the rooms have now been partly rebuilt and shaped up into something which rather looks like a underground nightclub or a small concert venue. New luxury features are two toilets directly connected to the data room and a superb air vent system to take away the most horrifying farts.

HOW TO FIND?: Check map here. (Big house in the middle.) If you arrive by train-ferry-bus-plane-wheelchair you will most certainly end up at the Helsingborg Central Station "KnutPunkten". From there we recommend a taxi up to the Milkfactory (10 minutes for about 100 SEK) or CityBus #3 (going towards Västergård), jumping off at the busstop called "Mejerigatan".

COMPOS: In classic LCP/Floppy fashion MC Frasse vs S.A.M and super demo DJ's Taper & Vinzi take you trough the compos in a wunderbar mix of kaos und ordnung. Last time three diskdrives gave up on us during the show. The compos are as follows: c64 Demo/Music/Graphics, Amiga, Atari, Gameboy, Spectrum, basically any vintage format you can come up with. We totally refuse to take compo entries from people not present at the party. The most divine form of compo participation karma can only be achieved by physical presence among the party monkeys, so you better be there! (This year we'll make sure to get hold of a better bigscreen projector than the funky one used at BFP2006.)

FOOD & DRINK: Like last year, we will have a BFP Foodmap ready so you can go food hunting in the surrounding area yourself. Within a 1km distance you will find a supermarket, burgergrill, Pizzerias, 24h Mcdonalds, 24h Petrolstations, and more. And if you are awake saturday morning you will be served a simple free breakfast.

ENTRANCE FEE: Only 100 SEK. (~10euro)

RULES: Smoking is outdoors.

COMFORT FACTOR?: Big Floppy People does not pretend to be a healthy event. In fact, concrete floors and no showers will surely transform you into a woked zombie within 48h. Chances are high that you will eat unhealthy food, drink unhealthy beverages, sleep in the most unlikely places and maybe wake up with a floppydisk glued to your forehead not knowing where the hell you are, but, and this is the real butt, YOU have chosen to live the data wildlife, and so have we. Peas on earth.

» Johey says (in Swedish):

Hej stordiskettmänniska!

Jag har hyrt en minibuss som avgår från Stockholm och ner till Helsingborg, via några avkrokar. Västerås och eventuellt Norrköping, exempelvis, beroende på var folk vill bli upplockade. Preliminär avgångstid från Stockholm är 12:00 på fredagen den 27/7, men det är inte helt spikat än. Kan även bli tidigare, men förmodligen inte senare. Hemfärd samma väg på söndagen. åket rymmer nio pers, men jag tror inte vi ska överskrida sju om vi ska ha en gnutta komfort och dataplats. Klart, nöden har ingen lag, men...

Totalpriset för resan uppskattas till 4000 kr och vi delar allt lika på alla i bilen, oavsett var man blir upplockad. Det är den faktiska kostnaden vi delar på och jag tar inte ut någon vinst så att säga.

I skrivande stund är status enligt nedan. Uppdaterad lista finns i tråden "Transport från/till Västerås/Stockholm-området" på scene.se.

Ska med: Jag, mindcooler, p3zman
Obekräftat: Joyride, wix
Nysare: zabutom, girlfiend, Albin, Truck

Det finns fortfarande ett par platser kvar, men det är lite först till kvarnvarning. Jalla balla!

(FTC says: In case you don't have access too scene.se, contact me and I'll give you Joheys email.)
