This year, instead of hosting the artists in the event space next to Pllek, after dinner the restaurant will be turned into an intimate club where they will be programming prominent live music showcases. Pllek Live Stage serves as a figurehead of a new and upcoming subculture, where the art of performing live music is making a prominent way into the electronic dance scene. Pllek is well known for its warm and eclectic vibe. Located on the vibrant waterfront of the creative NDSM, this will be the place where you can dance to extraordinary dance music with a view of the city skyline.

Karpov not Kasparov
Local heros in their native Bucharest but also quite active musical tourists, Karpov not Kasparov have been carrying their instruments throughout Europe during the past four years, playing their very energetic live set in alternative venues from Berlin, Milano, Vienna, Florence, Hamburg, Basel, Torino, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Prague, Warsaw, Lille, Budapest etc.

The duo began making music based on the rules and strategies of chess. It might seem complicated but the output is always a very danceable tune, sometimes with jazzy flavours, sometimes inspired by Oriental Folklore (because chess is an Oriental game) but always mixed with powerful 80's dance floor sounds. You might also see at their gigs ballet dancers or maybe some sort of theatrical performance, sometimes chess games played by the audience and other times the musicians play a live score for obscure silent films.
Pllek
Pllek is an open-minded, surprising, warm and creative cultural hang-out that serves honest food and cooks up an inspiring, funky mix of music, movies, exhibitions, workshops, yoga, mini-festivals and much more. Our programming is always focused on interconnection, (cultural) awareness and our shared world. Pllek prides itself on Amsterdam's best skyline view and is often called a hidden gem in magzines all around the world, from Ney York till Hong Kong. Its industrial container architecture fits in nicely with its shipyard surroundings. But inside, Pllek manages to offer a cosy home-away-from-home and a unique, accessible attitude. A raw, urban island vibe which invites you to open up and look around.
