About the author
Being driven by music from a young age made me realize how lucky I am to be situated in Amsterdam and its ever growing scene of artists, events and, of course, music enthusiasts. With a focus on the feel of House, Techno and all in between, sharing my love for music in any way possible acts as a fine expressive outlet.

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 make it worth your damn hangover.

Saturday: 2 YEARS of Round UP with Cristi Cons @ BRET

To celebrate their two year existence in style, ROUND UP invited the Romanian Amphia boss Cristi Cons to BRET. Also known as one half of the well-known SIT (Sideways Invisibility Theory) monicker together with Vlad Caia, Cristi Cons has developed a signature sound within the Romanian minimal sound throughout the years. Once a purist master of the classical cello, Cons traversed musical styles and went on to become one of Romania’s most in-demand artists both production- and performance-wise. The Czechs of Round UP have been pushing quality minimalist sounds, so it’s a good thing they targeted the Dam as one of this year’s excursions outside of Prague. Also, VBX affiliated Frank Haag, Ruis’s Pelle and Round UP regulars Bruno Curtis and Agustin Alvarez are present to play tunes. Don’t sleep on this one.

Saturday & Sunday: Het Weekend in collaboration with Rush Hour @ De School

For April’s weekender De School teamed up with one of Amsterdam’s most respected record stores to curate another unique and extensive lineup. The bill consists of Rush Hour initiator Antal, Alessandro Adriani, Toulouse Low Trax and Interstellar Funk to name but a few and will be accompanied by art interventions all over the place. Also, from April on, a beloved area of the institution makes its return: the garden. And 2018’s opening of De School’s garden couldn’t come at any better time. With this weekend’s weather forecasts floating around 20 degrees Celsius, the characteristic outside area will definitely be filled with vibes yet again. Starting with Ocke W inaugurating this year’s garden season, an array of artists will play chilled out sofa sessions throughout the day.
