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.

Thursday: Likeminded After Christmas Special @ Oosterbar

The days around christmas up until new year’s day provide an abundance of events set up by some of the Dam’s most interesting promoters. Likeminded is one of them and therefore hosts the cosy Oosterbar for a decent conclusion of a more than eventful year. Playing are Roy ‘Ghetto’ Koch, Jaime Frias, Daan Donk and Atnan.

Friday: The Horrorist & Parrish Smith @ Garage Noord

Garage Noord presents a night of sinister tones and sturdy rhythms to launch you into the year’s final weekend celebration. With a live performance by the one and only Horrorist and a prolonged DJ set by Parrish Smith lined up, lovers of this side of the musical spectrum are in for a real treat.

Saturday: S.A.M., Pieter Jansen & Doris Nicholas @ noorderling

In its turn, noorderling is inviting a tight selection of heads to close off its first year of existence. First up is S.A.M., who’s become somewhat of a production guru as a result of his more than steady flow of extremely atmospheric tracks and reshapes. Complementing him will be local powerhousers Pieter Jansen and Doris Nicholas. Highly recommended!

Sunday: Sleepless In The City by Destructive Creations @ Sugar Factory

The Destructive Creations agency gathers their roster of artists to usher in the year’s last Sunday morning and pull you through the afternoon by any means. The ensemble probably won’t stay quiet for long and might just make some new moves in 2019. Playing are Bertram, Harley Doorson, Jasper Pol, Maksi and Pershian in a celebratory b2b2b2b2b fashion.

Monday (NYE): Reaktor X Dax J @ Warehouse Elementenstraat

Concluding the year with a proper bang will not be done better than at Dax J’s first full-blown Reaktor edition. With both the organization and Dax reigning over everything fierce and powerful for some time now, a collab between the two makes for an absolutely insane line up to take control of Elementenstraat warehouse’s industrial site. Playing are Dax himself, Thomas P. Heckmann, Regis, UVB and many more..

Tuesday (NYD): Breakfast Club Is Burning

After a tiny sweep the same warehouse will be taken over by Is Burning and Breakfast Club to put down another one of their infamous new year’s day parties. As joined forces the two always facilitate a more than interesting selection of sounds and continuously keep the energy flowing in both of the vast rooms. Traditionally, the line up is still to be announced.
