Rob is 28 (but needs his beard to actually look like it), loves music, adventures and spontaneous people. His scribblings are about these things too, so if you share his interests, stay tuned!

Today we can finally announce all the details of this year’s edition of our outdoor festival Next Monday’s Hangover: Buiten Westen. After Gaasperpark last year, we now move to the beautiful and central Westerpark. Six local initiatives for electronic music will all host a stage with a mix of DJs and live acts, and the entire park will be turned into one big carnival of art and entertainment. We will keep you updated of all festival news via, but for now these are the main facts:

Six stages, six hosts

Every stage is home to an Amsterdam based initiative for electronic music: Pleinvrees, Rekorder, Circus Wunderbar, BlackOut, Vrijbuiters and PaardenKracht. They each have an own distinct sound: from disco, to house, to techno. But all share a similar warm vibe too. Pleinvrees stands for a warm, more melodious sound and have Oliver Koletzki, AKA AKA ft. Thalstroem and Joris Delacroix leading the dance. Rekorder believes in house music without borders, with Max Cooper, Kollektiv Turmstrasse and more they will go from funky to tech. Circus Wunder is a modern interpretation of the circus. Music meets freaky entertainment with ringmasters such as Rodriguez Jr. and Marc Romboy. BlackOut pioneers a mix of the new UK house sound combined with a more classic US sound, Prosumer, Blawan and Levon Vincent lead the way. To round the festival off we have Vrijbuiters presenting their techno sound and PaardenKracht who will host a disco extravaganza!

Art, design, performance, experience

You need a lot of words to say something simple: Buiten Westen will be about more than just music. We believe art, fashion and food have as much of an impact on a visitor’s experience as music, and as hosts of this event we at will make sure that this festival will be a cultural event instead of just a dance event. Buiten Westen will invest strongly in art, design, performance, experience and everything else that tickles the senses. Regular visitors of Next Monday’s Hangover will already know what that means when coming from us!
