Exactly 30 years ago, a huge demoparty took place for the first time in Aars, Denmark:
And... it became legendary in the #demoscene history. (thread)
@Truck @fenarinarsa I did hear that the US scene has much less parties. I was lucky enough to be living in Sweden where a lot of the good ones were, with other big ones nearby, mostly in Finland and Germany. It was pretty easy to get to them, so we ended up going to several every year.
I'd like to argue that it was the golden age of parties. These days I live in Asia, so there is only one party I try to go to and that's our old group's meetup every year (although it's been cancelled for 2 years due to covid of course). It's a small one with a few tens of people only.
