On July 1st and 2nd, 2023 the LEVEL UP will take place in Salzburg, Austria.
The Amiga Future will be there with some computers in the retro area.
It would be nice if we could meet as many Amiga users there as possible.
About LEVEL UP – The Gaming Festival
In August 2021 LEVEL UP opened the gates for the first time, at that time still in the Salzburg Arena.
The goal was and still is to establish Salzburg as the geographical center of Austria for a gaming and
eSports event and to make this trend accessible to a broad audience.
LEVEL UP is the first Austrian gaming and eSports festival that brings together recreational gamers,
professionals, gaming fans, as well as creators and stars of the scene in an experience-oriented
atmosphere to experience new trends and celebrate the common passion.
Until now, gaming events have mostly focused on pure competition. LEVEL UP combines this with
casual community building to ensure that all gamers and gaming fans get their money's worth.
This year's edition, which will be held for the third time at the Messezentrum Salzburg on July 1 and
2, 2023, will once again impress with the diversity and balance of the offerings. At LEVEL UP there is
something for everyone, no matter if hobby gamer, eSport pro, cosplayer, retro fan, indie lover, card
gamer, tabletop player, or even for grandparents who are out and about with their grandchildren.
Particularly successful program highlights from previous years will be back this year. Among others,
the LEVEL UP ICARACE World Championships, the high-class Rocket League tournament Morekats
Mayhem #4, cosplay action in cooperation with Animix, tabletop and card gaming in cooperation
with Gamers Finest Salzburg and CardArena, a drone championship, and a charity stream to raise
money for charitable causes.
There will also be a separate FSK16+ area, where players and organizations will battle it out in
tournaments without youth clearance.
New this year is that the ESSL National Championship will hold its final matches in Valorant at LEVEL
UP. On the mainstage, Street Fighter 6 will make its debut in a showmatch and as a very special
highlight, streamer Veyla will go live directly from LEVEL UP and report on the action on Twitch.
LEVEL UP promises to be a highlight among German-speaking events again this year. It doesn't
matter if you are an eSports organization, a hobby gamer or a game-loving family. Everyone can play
alone or together as they please, meet friends and stars of the scene, and chat about the latest
gaming trends at the numerous food trucks.
To make this year's event fun for the whole family, visitors under 16 pay a discounted price, and
children under 12 attend completely free.
