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: ZeeZout Festival @ Blijburg Aan Zee

At last, ZeeZout’s annual gathering at the beach` of Blijburg will conclude 2018’s festival season. In a big way, to say the least. Spread over five distinct stages, the event has arguably come up with their most varied outing up until now. Musically, one can expect to get their groove on at areas delivering all sorts of styles ranging from disco to electro and more. Unique about ZeeZout’s design of space must be the extremely short distances between the different stages and sounds, making it easy to just roam around the beach while deciding where to go next.

Deciding will be tough as the festival’s has lined up so many possible highlights. Both Andrey Pushkarev and Margaret Dygas will play a 3-hour set, Schwefelgelb will be performing live and Identified Patient is going back-to-back with Job Sifre for another round of pure synergy to name but a few of them.

Saturday: Phase Fatale, Parrish Smith & Antenes @ De School

Planning on continuing ZeeZout’s festivities in a proper way? You’d best go visit De School for some madness downstairs. The three artists taking the decks at night can all justly be seen as true forces in their own respected way, but all cover the common ground of pure intense electronics.

Next to this year’s commence of his own label ‘Bite’, Hayden Payne AKA Phase Fatale hasn’t stopped making waves and keeps on overwhelming crowd’s with his particular blend of techno, industrial and EBM-influenced sounds on a global scale. A blend that’s extremely well suited for the infamous School basement. Also accompanied by Parrish Smith’s relentless and punky attitude towards techno and antenes’ harsh and moody vibe, this night might perfectly resemble being in the right place at the right time.
