Spend your day hacking and evening partying in North Amsterdam

This Saturday, the 26th of November, you can spend your entire day at the old Shell building, just across the water from Central Station in North Amsterdam. Here you can attend the Hack de Overheid event and/or the Eddie the Eagle party.

Hack de Overheid

If you’re feeling a bit geeky, be sure to attend the Hack de Overheid (‘hack the government’) event, which is held prior to the party. You need to register here to attend. This event is all all about using (open) data to get new insights through the ways of hacking. Matt Biddulph, Marius Watz and Marietje Schaake will be attending as speakers, with coffee by Koffie Kees Kraakman, food by Hot Mama Hot and high-, low- and no-tech art.

Eddie the Eagle party

From 21:00 till 04:00 you can attend the last Eddie the Eagle event of the year. An evening filled with live music, performances, art and more. With, for example, DJ Lonely and DJ Baba Electronica. They’re into Brazilian hardcore funk, a style created in the favela’s of Rio. Listen for yourself:

There are dozens of acts and installations. One which got my attention is a presentation of porn banners by Pinar and Viola, an independent designer duo that creates crazy designs drenched in pulp and kitsch aesthetics.

There’ll be a cocktail bar and free hand picked oysters by Sjim Hemdrix. If all of this sounds a bit crazy, it probably is.
