After a sold-out night at Paradiso during ADE 2022, Cloud 8 and Ziongate are once again joining forces for club night TRIBES, a magical dance ritual.


Ziongate is the new futuristic club night based on African electronic riddims. In a world overstimulated by media, political and social pressures, Ziongate brings an alternative future where the focus is not the individual but the collective. The riddims of afrotech, amapiano, gqom and afrohouse lead to a place where people are free.

Cloud 8

Since 2018, Cloud 8 brings together a variety of DJs, live performances and art with their events in Rotterdam. Led by the best selection of soulful and deep afrohouse by international artist Cloud 8 quickly became the event for a diverse audience.
