The charity four-a-side tournament will go down at the renowned club on ADE Thursday, with 16 teams competing for the cup. RA's and De School's teams will be joined by groups repping electronic music jobs board Doors Open, booking agency Odd Fantastic, Atonal, Zenker Brothers' Ilian Tape label, Helsinki's Post Bar and Berlin’s Wilde Renate. The Netherlands will be represented by teams from Dekmantel, Rush Hour, Clone, Redlight Radio, PIP Den Haag, Zwart Goud and last year's champions, Garage Noord.
As always, the RA Cup is for a good cause, with all of this year's proceeds going towards the Netherlands branch of climate movement Extinction Rebellion. Entry, which is open to the public, is a €5 donation.
The RA Cup will run from 2 till 9 PM, and spectators will be able to take in the highs and lows of each match pitch-side. De School's cafe will be open for food and drinks, and they'll be streaming the matches there so you can keep up with the tournament ànd your ADE meetings. In addition they also have a barbecue going on all day long. On top of this they're also putting on something totally new: a Playstation FIFA tournament, including prizes.
