Welcome to Breakpoint 2006, world's biggest pure demoscene event. Up to 1000 visitors from more than 30 nations are expected to once again gather in the beautiful town of Bingen am Rhein, Germany, from the 14th to the 17th of April 2006 (Easter weekend).
Make your way through a jungle of creativity, skills and art. A huge range of competitions, seminars and events about code, music and graphics awaits you - all created by a worldwide community of young computer enthusiasts.
Meet old friends or make new ones, amaze the crowd with your productions, and improve your knowledge in all kinds of computer related art.
(You still don't know what this is all about? Never been to a demoparty before? Check our New Visitors section!)
Voted best demoparty for 3 years in a row by the readers of the PAiN magazine, we of course also stay commited to bringing you the best possible party experience - cheap drinks, cool music liveacts, a seperate beer/party-tent, a meadow with bonfire and of course our relaxed and friendy party rule set are just a few of our core features - you may read more about those in the About the party section. As the 2005 party location, the "Rundsporthalle" in Bingen, was an all-out success with both the visitors and the organizers, we will gladly return there this year.
We are also proud to again host 2005's scene.org Awards, like we did for the past 3 years. Experience the ceremony live at Breakpoint, where the best demos and demo creators from 2005 will be awarded.

Another goodie, this time for C64 users: There also does exist an Invitation Demo for you breadbox-lovers. While it doesn't explain the Breakpoint 2006 story as the PC one does, it still is real fun and a highly recommended watch.
