About Outline

As Holland's longest running annual demoscene event, Outline offers culinary delights, crazy cheap drinks, DJs and live acts, competitions for all platforms and craptastic prize giving ceremonies at 11:30.

Outline is a demo party, an event which takes place over the course of several days. It is a place where people compete, and celebrate the creative use of computers. If this is your first encounter with Outline or demo parties in general, you would do well to read up on the matter on wikipedia.

Outline started in 2004 as a shadow party organised by and for the Atari demo scene to coincide with Breakpoint (one of the largest demo scene events held annually in Germany). Word got out and the unique atmosphere started attracting people from other platforms. Today, Outline remains an Atari party at heart but welcomes all platforms to mingle, agree and disagree.


Outline is taking place at Groepsaccomodatie De Riethoeve, Paasloregel 45 in Willemsoord, strategically located on the outskirts of a former pauper colony in Overijssel.

  • Facilities

    A spacious main hall with large format projection screen and suitable audio, plenty of beds and a private campsite, terrace and sportsfields right outside the main hall, indoor bar and lounge, and last but not least: a pond for the PMP duckies.

  • Food & Drink

    Outline serves shockingly cheap drinks and snacks at the bar. To top that off, there's free coffee, tea and breakfast for every visitor. A €30,− food ticket covers you for dinner throughout the event.

  • Network

    We'll be kicking it oldskool this year −no fancy internet nor networking, just the essentials for uploading and voting. We have no incentive to cater to Sofasceners −please stop asking for video feeds.

Getting there

The location is considerably more up north than Outline has been before, but long-distance travellers will not be affected much.

  1. People coming by plane are recommended to land at Amsterdam Schiphol and use the Intercity connection towards Leeuwarden to get to Steenwijk. This train leaves every 30 minutes and the trip takes less than two hours.

    Actievandedag can supply train tickets valid from Schiphol towards Outline and back for the semi-impressively low fee of €25,−.

  2. On Friday and Saturday, you can take Bus 76 to get to busstop Willemsoord. From there, the location can be reached by taking a left turn from the intersection and walk 750 metres.

    You can book a cheaper-than-normal taxi to/from the railway station via NS Zonetaxi, currently the price from Steenwijk Station to the partyplace is 16,30EUR.

    Alternatively, 15-30 minutes before arriving at Steenwijk station you can dial +31-521-513000. A Taxi Oost car or van will show up in front of station Steenwijk and take upto 4 people to the party location for approximately €24 (don't forget to bring the address!).

  3. Most people coming by car should start by reaching the A32 expressway travelling north towards Leeuwarden. After taking exit 7: Steenwijk Noord and turning left at the bottom of the exit, follow the road and exit the roundabout straight ahead towards Willemsoord.

    Keep following the road straight through Witte Paarden township. About 2 kilometers from the highway exit, the main road takes a sharp turn to the left, and right there you can also turn right to continue travelling straight in the direction of Willemsoord. After about 1,5km, you will reach the main road crossing in Willemsoord with on your right hand side Cafe de Steen. Turn left onto Paasloregel here, and follow the road for about 800m until you see the hall with the "De Riethoeve" sign on the left side of the road.


Outline offers a wild variety of live sets, DJ sessions and performances from an international line-up of artists.

Outline tickets cost €65,− during the pre-pay period and €75,− at the door for the regular package. A €30,− upgrade for pre-pay tickets adds catering dinners to the mix. Dinners can be ordered separately too.

A pre-order ticket gives you full access to the event with very little to worry about: there's a bed reservation and free breakfast/coffee/tea. The €30,− upgrade will add catering dinners to the pile of goodies, meaning you are pretty much set for entertainment, rest and food for the duration of the event.
