あなたと一緒に8年目のデモショックを祝おう! December 01-02, 2018 3331 Arts Chiyoda • Tokyo, Japan

About

Tokyo Demo Fest is a demoparty: an event dedicated to digital art expression. Watch seminars, learn from others, share knowledge, watch demos, make music, make demos, get creative, compete, share your passion and make friends!

Tokyo Demo Fest will be held during two days on December 01-02, 2018 at the 3331 Arts Chiyoda, in Tokyo.
For those who cannot come, a live streaming will be available.

Location

3331 Arts Chiyoda
(This is the same location as last year!)

The event will be held in a hall roughly the area of medium-sized European demoparties. Needless to say, the partyplace features a massive screen for showing productions. Also, you are welcome to bring food and drinks from outside, so you can enjoy demos while having, and maybe sharing, delicacies. (That being said this is a demoparty, not a cooking party, so please don't bring your stove or microwave. :) )

Food table (At any time)

TDF supporters

Let's make Tokyo Demo Fest the once in a year awesome demoparty. What's better to socialize than a meal and a drink? In 2016, some visitors had this simple yet fabulous idea to put some food on a table with a sign "free for everyone, bring more food". Soon enough, the real party was at the food table. Let's do this again this year!
