About the author
Born and raised in Amsterdam, lives to dance and dances to live on electronic music, has a small vinyl addiction, appreciates a little sarcasm now and then, thinks musicals are annoying and loves those moments where you lose track of time completely.

New name, same concept. 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: Dystoptian Showcase @ Closure

If there’s a brand new club in town, I have no choice but to go and check it out. When you book Dimitri for your opening weekend you definitely got my attention. On Friday there’ll be a Dystopian showcase in Closure. This means raw, melancholic and dark electronic music. I’m starting to appreciate this intense and harder side of electronic music more and more every day. Don Williams, Distant Echoes, Ron Albrecht, Sandrien and and Invite will perform and I’m excited.

Friday: KEINEMUSIK x KARTON Showcase @ Studio 80

I remember the Watergate x KEINEMUSIK special as if it were yesterday. Of course Ellen Allien, Sebo K and Quantum Entanglement were amazing, but in Studio 2 magic was created and I was blown away by KEINEMUSIK. This label knows you don’t necessarily need to be overly serious to be taken seriously. If people would stop taking themselves so serious all the time the world would be a nicer place for sure. And KEINEMUSIK is just straight up fun. This Friday Adam Port, Rampa and Reznik will be back and I sure as hell can’t wait.

Saturday: KNUS @ De ClubUp

If I’m completely honest, for some reason I don’t go to ClubUp that often. However, I’m more than happy to go there again and experience that amazing sound system for this party. KNUS is small enough to find your friends when you’ve lost them in the crowd but big enough to make new ones. What could be better than doing this while dancing to Dutch heroes Nuno Dos Santos, Tsepo and Pieter Jansen? Probably nothing.


Fade Blank in Cruquiusgilde (which is an intimate venue I really recommend you to check out) or Junction in Radion are two other options that will be worth your hangover.
