Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow your options down by weekly suggesting the events where you can meet, dance and drink with Amsterdam’s finest crowds. After all, ‘a hangover ain’t worth the pain if the party is lame’. So here’s where you weekend warriors should go to for next Monday’s hangover.

Friday: The Percolator invites HOT CHIP (Alexis Taylor DJ-set) @ AIR

This Friday Guerilla Speakerz and The Heykids take over AIR with a second edition of their own night called ‘The Percolator’. After the succesful first edition, these folks decided to invite none other than Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip to do a special DJ-set for the night. Than followed by an almost unlimited back2back set by Speakerz and the Kids themselves. Finally, local hero Beesmunt Soundsystem will end the night with some heavy sounding house rhythms. Listen to their mixtape beneath to get an idea.

Friday: Bar27 Funke Friday – Red Edition @ Studio 80

Another group of people celebrating their second edition of a successful party concept is Bar27 with their Funke Friday Red Edition. Why Funke Friday? Because they flew in Berlin superstar Sascha Funke supported by Olivier Weiter, Ken Abel, Charles Davos (live), Erin and even some female touches by Eke Evi. Expect lots of deep house, minimal en melodic techno during the six hours of both audio and visual pleasure at Studio 80.

Saturday: HENK op de HELLING @ NDSM Docks

On Saturday it’s time for the best mini-festivals again: Henk op de Helling. I wrote about this a few weeks back in our summer festivals preview. I just thought I’d remind you that although it’s been sold out for a while, there are still tickets available at the door on Saturday!

Saturday: ELECTRONATION 9 YR Fight Cancer Benefit @ PARADISO

On Saturday the 23d of July, Electronation will celebrate it’s 9 year anniversary in Holland’s most legendary venue. This joyful fact will be celebrated in the Paradiso in a special collaboration with the FightCancer initiative. The three rooms of the Amsterdam Pop temple will be packed to the rafters with Holland’s finest from the electro, house, disco and techno scene! The massive line-up fully consists of friends and relatives that helped or contributed to the success of Electronation in the past 9 years. In honor of Roy Avni, the founding father of Electronation that passed away last year way too soon, all profit of this 9 year Anniversary will be donated to the FightCancer initiative from the KWF kankerbestrijding. Who are on the bill for this occassion? Robotnick, Terry Toner vs Herr Arter, Anton Pieete, Darko Esser, Warren Fellow, Mason, Applescal (Live), Arjuna Schiks (Live), ONNO, Marnix, Homework, The Heykids, Victor Coral and many more!

Saturday: Green Room @ Studio /K

Green Room brings the highest quality electronic artists of today to the city of Amsterdam for a night of blazing progressive music and sharp visual displays. Finding inspiration from the hidden underground electronic parties of 1980′s in L.A. Innovation and diversity reigned supreme at that time, so prepare for an event that is born out of a lust for everything dark, edgy and green. Expect to hear an array of Wonk, Glitch, Future Beat/Dub, Electronica, Juke, IDM and Electro provided by KUEDO, Kavsrave, Clouds, Kristof, Krampfhaft and local hero Juha.
