20 Years of Evoke – ip31

In this installment we’re focusing on a massive international demoparty known as Evoke. This year Evoke takes place on the weekend from 18th to 20th of August, 2017 and for 20 years, Evoke has proven that it provides a platform: a platform for creativity and also for friendship. A party that’s worth visiting.
