Something is brewing in the Amsterdam nightlife. Something that reaches past the walls of the clubs. Something that breaks boundaries. The city is buzzing with young organizations, upcoming talent, new initiatives and exceptional hybrids. In this climate – probably the healthiest Amsterdam has ever known – Valhalla is born.
United under one roof in the Amsterdam RAI for the first time, Valhalla is the best our capital city has produced in the past years. The flagships of Pleinvrees, Dekmantel, GirlsLoveDJs, Apenkooi, Bar27, FORMAT, Colors, Backstage/Nachtdivisie, PaardenKracht and AIR join forces for Amsterdam’s first winter parade of moving and inspiring electronic music. Everything from disco to techhouse, from deephouse to uncut techno and from UK funky to completely eclectic dance music is at home here. The parties involved have all made a name for themselves in their subgenres.
Dekmantel has risen as a protagonist of pure, American-style house, whilst Bar27 successfully brought the Eastern club sound to Amsterdam. In the Netherlands, Pleinvrees is the trendsetter of atmospheric, melodious house music, with deep bass lines. Colors has gone so far as to give “bass” a new dimension with its UK funky oriented parties.
For years, GirlsLoveDJs has excelled as the bridge builder between many different scenes, where Apenkooi has tripled the fun in nightlife with eclectic theme parties. In a small amount of time, AIR harvested success as a cosmopolitan club with an eye for the crowd and an ear for quality, while PaardenKracht emerged as the Dutch leader in the nu-disco genre. Backstage/Nachtdivisie represents the Chicago Social Club, respectably one of the most successful clubs in Amsterdam.
But Valhalla is more. Valhalla is an indoor winter festival with a multi colored display of music styles, disciplines, organizations, artists and performers. An exploration through the nooks and crannies of a convention center turned dance hall. A stimulating setting, that challenges and surprises, and is all about the experience and adventure.
The pre-sale starts on Thursday October 4th. Tickets are available through the website and at Primera vendors. We consciously kept the price on the low side to keep it interesting. The earlier you purchase, the less you pay.
Valhalla is the Free State in which creativity and liberalism are fully expressed. And the doors will open for you for the first time on December 22nd…
