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: PRISMA @ Studio 80

I’m going to Max Cooper’s Emergence live show on Friday and I couldn’t wish for a better after-party than PRISMA. As you probably know PRISMA is all about the futuristic, complex, artistic, deeper side of techno. I’m going to both Nachtdigital and Fusion for the first time this summer and this Friday I’ll be able to dip my toes into the festival magic a little bit because Steffen Bennemann and Manamana are playing. Oh and local talents Some Chemistry and Thom East are performing as well. Can’t wait!


Friday: Light House @ Canvasopde7e

Light House invites artists to push their own musical boundaries and play music outside their comfort zone. Interesting sets are an obvious and lovely result. This time Craig Richards is up. When you think of partying in London you think of Fabric. Craig is a resident there and has been for years. He helped to create the Fabric sound. He already played in Concrete in Paris and Berghain in Berlin and Canvasopde7e is next. Expect the unexpected this Friday.

Saturday: Oostkaap @ Cruqiusgilde

I’ve been looking forward to this for at least a month for four reasons. One: Massimiliano Pagliara is playing. I discovered this Italian music mastermind during a some Horizon parties and he has become one of my personal favourites. Two: Reza Athar is opening. His choice in music is seriously impressive and I bet that this guy is going to get big. Three: Carlos Valdes is closing. He blew me away with Sandrien during Is Burning and I can’t wait for him to do it again. Four: all of this is happening in Cruquiusgilde. I love this intimate warehouse and the vibe is almost comparable to Trouw. No reason not to go if you ask me. See you there?


Speaking of dipping your toes into the festival magic; both PRISMA and Kaap A’dam will be present at IZTOK in Bulgaria this summer, so your weekend is a done deal if you’re going there this summer. The return of Lazy Sundays, Tomorrow Is Now, Kid! in Studio 80 and the Sunday Opening of Woodstock ’69 where Voltt, Pleinvrees, ZeeZout and LET will provide the music will be worth your hangover as well so be sure to check them out!
