Merel’s Mind: King’s Day chaos

Apr 24, 2014 |  by  |  Art

Queen’s King’s Day is probably the most crowded day of the year in Amsterdam. All we want is gallivant down the road, enjoy sun, sip our drink, end up on an unexpected good party, being thankful for our dear friend Willem-Alexander and eat cake with his face on it. Right? (..more)

Hold on to your panties. The west of Amsterdam just got a whole lot cooler, with a brand spankin’ new hotspot that just opened up. De Hallen is home to a hotel, restaurant, TV studio, cinema and library, located in an old tram shed in the Kinker-neigbourhood. (..more)

Guests of Honour: Adriatique talk Kingsday in Amsterdam

Guests of Honour: Adriatique talk Kingsday in Amsterdam

Apr 17, 2014 |  by  |  Event, Music

Few DJ’s have been on such a rise for the last 12 months like Zurich based Adriatique. As part of the Diynamic family they’ve been touring all over the world and have become a fan favourite for many of us. On Kingsnight they will be playing at ‘De Nachtdivisie’ in the Dhoem Dhaam Warehouse alongside wAFF & Burnski. Perfect excuse to have a quick chat with the two Adrians (they’re both named Adrian hence the name Adriatique, you’d guess) in between their hectic touring schedule. (..more)

Inspiring sessions and memorable stories with Blancolour

Inspiring sessions and memorable stories with Blancolour

Apr 17, 2014 |  by  |  Event

They say the older you get, the wiser you get. And let me be honest, if there’s one thing I do know now, it’s that everyone has a story to tell. Ok, they’re not always the most inspiring stories ever, but I truly believe that people always have an element of surprise in them; an ability to catch you off guard with something spectacular. Precisely this, is what triggered Sebastiaan Wubben to kickstart Blancolour and share these stories through intimate mini-workshops. (..more)

Guest of Honour: Ivan Smagghe wants to kill undefined things

Ivan Smagghe is pretty cool. Just look at him. He looks so intriguing and mysterious. After reading his Facebook description I didn’t get the impression that he likes (lazy) journalists, but I took the risk. I like his music. What I like about it is that he plays obscure music but at the same time his sets are danceable. On the 3rd of May he’ll play at Horizon in Doka. (..more)

Don't miss Philip Glass in De Melkweg

Don’t miss Philip Glass in De Melkweg

Apr 16, 2014 |  by  |  Event, Music

Philip Glass is, you might not see this coming because I write about electronic music most of the time, one of my favourite artists. I listen to his music a lot, especially on moments I have to focus because I have to write an essay for example. The minimalistic simplicity of his music is beautiful — although he has composed other stuff as well. He also happens to be one of the most influential composers of the last fifty years. On the 11th of May he’ll be in Amsterdam and has something very special planned. I can’t wait. (..more)
