Revision is an annual international Demoparty set in Saarbrüken in Germany.
Actually one of the biggest European Demoparty (if not THE biggest). And has many in common with a mundane Rave-Party.
Amstrad Productions were released in the Oldskool compositions during the 2010s era and would often be ranked on the podium, and a growing community of Amstrad users would regularly attend the event, be it to release something or just enjoy some Curry-Wurst and drink a few WeissBier.

This year's Oldskool Demo compo was literally stolen by the massively acclaimed Overdrive 2, by TITAN on Sega MegaDrive, and the general level in the Oldskool compo was judged impressive by many commenters and deemed a huge highlight of the whole event, with awesome demos on Atari VCS2600, AppleIIgs or Atari Lynx as well. Still an Amstrad Demo managed to be on the top podium despite a brutally fierce competition. The Live Twitch hosts were litterally rendered speechless after the Amstrad CPC performance that followed an already impressive Atari VCS 2600, they provided many things on screen judged impossible on these formats. Then Sega MegaDrive's entrance with its massive work in tunes and graphics finished to impress everyones and could also have raped the whole Amiga compo as well.
