West - Thursday

Wednesday, 16 October 2019
ADE kicks into second gear today and we’re here to help you find your way through the vast offering of talks, parties and happenings. We compiled five tips together with Desperados to show you around in the western district.

Amsterdam’s Westside is a pure-bred musical hotspot. It is where you can dance in iconic industrial venues and rave in warehouses until the sun rises, not to mention pop-up (record) stores, exhibitions and conference programming worth exploring.

Vinylism | Radio Radio | 17:00 - 21:00

If you’re looking for thundering beats and techno, you’ll find that Amsterdam West is a somewhat of a treasure trove. Head over to Westergas to find Radio Radio. By day, it is home to Rotterdam’s Clone Records and their pop-up store, and this evening you can drop by for a free show featuring Amotik, DJ Stingray 313, Ellen Allien and Freddy K.

Awakenings | Gashouder | 22:00 - 08:00

Tapping into that same vein, Awakenings is taking over the massive Gashouder near the Westerpark together with Adam Beyer’s stalwart Drumcode Records. He invited a range of friends to keep you dancing deep through the night, and you can hear set by the likes of Bart SkilsEnrico Sangiuliano, Maceo Plex and Monika Kruse. You can also find the techno institute taking over H7 Warehouse a little further west, where Ansome, Perc, and Stranger are set to headline.

Electric Deluxe | Thuishaven | 16:00 - 06:00

Thuishaven is not a club, but a festival site surrounded by industry, oil tankers and scrapyards. A perfect setting if you’re up for raw electronics tonight, as Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe crew is taking over for a bass-laden showcase that features Clouds, Daniel Avery, Konduku, Speedy himself together with Surgeon, Palmbomen II and Versalife. Buckle up.

Body Drop | VLLA | 17:00 - 02:00

Body Drop is zooming into a tried and tested musical technique: the drop. The drop is felt on the dance floor as a moment of ecstatic unification, yet this (seemingly singular) range of events emerges from a long labour of rhythmic play and resonances across different tracks. If you want to learn all about it, make sure to drop by to see and hear performances, talks and DJ sets that explore the ins and outs of this phenomenon.

Spielraum | Radion | 23:00 - 08:00

Spielraum is a queer night that aims to create a safer dance floor. A place where everyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity or age, is invited to playfully celebrate their freedom. Tonight the Berlin crew is setting up shop at Radion, a raw three-room club that will be the playground of Freddy K, Hanno Hinkelbein, KI/KI, Peach who are serving a wide spectrum of heavy musical machinations.
