    1.1 What is Escape 2001?

    Escape 2001 is a demoscene party held for the second time
    ever. Escape features 150 computerplaces and 120 normal
    tickets. Compared to last year we are slightly bigger.

    1.2 Where is Escape held?

    The partyplace will be the same where e2k was held ie. Olari
    highschool in southern Espoo, Finland. The partyarea has
    moved from the auditorium to the dining hall which is bigger.
    The school was built in 1993 and it gives great opportunities
    for the event. You can check the address and driving 
    instructions from CONTACT.

    1.3 When does the party take place?

    Escape is held on the second weekend of May, 11th to 13th,

    1.4 Tickets

    Ticket sales start on 22.02.2001 (DD.MM.YYYY) Ticket sales
    continue until tickets have either been sold out or when it's
    not wise to mail them (that would be few weeks before the event).
    Like last year, we are unable to sell tickets from door. You
    will just have to buy them forehand. Don't whine, there's
    nothing we can do about it.

    Computer places cost 80 FIM. Normal tickets (the ones 
    without computerplace) cost 50 FIM. For the (unfortunately)
    small group of female sceners we offer a 20 FIM entrance 
    ticket. There is no discout from computer place tickets,
    they cost 80 FIM to all of you. Handling fee will be added 
    to prices.      
    For the real oldschool demosceners and otherwise active scene-
    people we offer a few free entrance tickets. If you think you
    should get one send an application to There 
    will be no free computerplaces for you, though. Just entrance
    If the computerplaces are sold out quickly we might be able to
    arrange some additional computerplces. These places would be
    sold rigth before the event or at the event.    

    NOTE! If we sell extra computer places they won't include
    entrance ticket. You will have to order one from the Internet

    2.3 Raves

    We are trying to get some djs to play music at raves. Our
    goal is to get some good djs and lots of ravers. We try to arrange
    lots of effects and great audio equipment. Djs will play at the
    times marked to the schedule and possibly other times, too.

    We aren't quite certain about the raves because we don't
    know if people want them. We are also short on djs. 

    2.4 Network

    Everybody buying a computer place has an opportunity to
    connect their computers to our partynetwork and to the Internet.
    Partynet should work at the speed of 100Mbit/sec and Internet
    at 10Mbit/sec. 

    We have a switch-based network but on some tables we think we
    have to use some hubs, too. You have to take care that you have 
    enough network cable (RJ-45) with you. Suggested length is ca. 10m.

    Voting at compos is done via the partynet. Though we can't promise
    that the net is up and running. We try our best.

    2.5 Food. (true party-people don't eat, right?)

    At the proximity of the partyplace you can find many pizzerias,
    restaurants, shops and bars. We'll make a list of places that
    sell food on our website. 

    It's advicable to bring some food with you. If so you should
    consider bringing a refridgerator, too. The other option is to
    walk to the center of Olari where you can go to a shop or some 
    restaurant kind of thing.
