Revision is a demoparty which takes place on Easter in Saarbrücken, Germany. It is the successor of the Breakpoint party series, and retains many of the organizing staff.[1] The event was established in 2011, after Breakpoint had announced its end in 2010.

The party hosts around 800 people from around the world each year.[2][3] It is currently the largest pure-demoscene event in the world.[4][5]
