Freebase

  1. Evoke

    Evoke is the second largest demoparty held annually in Germany. Since 1997, Evoke takes place in the region of Cologne and is organized by Digitale Kultur e.V. Each year this computer festival attracts visitors from around the world and is known for high-quality entries in their competitions. Attendees of Evoke tend to appreciate its "familiar feeling"; contrary to other demoparties such as Assembly, almost every visitor knows everyone else. The main corporate sponsor of Evoke is Intel and it is also supported by the Cultural Office of Cologne. Like some other demoparties, Evoke has a motto each year. The location, the competitions and other things have to match it. In 2004, Evoke expanded to open up to the public with the Evoke Netlabel Night, where several prominent netlabels performed live. This add-on event was meant to cross over and draw in visitors who were not previously familiar or involved with the demoscene. This kind of sub-event is being continued in 2007 with the Evoke Tracks.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
