The Gathering 1994

29TH MARCH — 2ND APRIL — RYKKINN, NORWAY

The Gathering 1994 was held at Rykkinnhallen in Rykkinn, Norway. This was the 3rd The Gathering party, and the 1st and only time at this location. This was also the first year that AGA graphics were allowed in the Amiga demo and graphics competitions, and it was also the first year that an official pc demo competition was held. Modules were still 4-channel only. Ex-Crusaders musician Bjørn “Dr.Awesome” Lynne took the opportunity to host a release party at TG for his new cd Montage.
