TICKETS: ON DOOR ONLY
4 years ago.
We opened an unusual place for Baku in Khagani Street. This was the first electronic music club and it gathered 50 people at the opening event. The place worked for 2 days. The reason for closing-down was a written complaint of more than 30 neighbors. At the time, because of the debts bigger than us, we did not realize that we actually had just started something huge for our city.
We remember the "Fearless" graffiti created by Azer on the wall of the club.
iN as the development of club culture in Baku began this way.
The opening of the second space with a Russian artist Ishome took place in a former "Face Club". It was attended by 250 people. Later on, we moved to Nizami Street.
We still remember the visuals projected on a 4 meter long panel made by Javid Guliyev and the graffitis by Samir Salahov that transformed the old glamorous place to a whole new level with fresh atmosphere.
For the first time, techno music was performed by local artists in this place.
The club stopped its activity. Our financial frustration and high rent extended our path for 3 more months.
After dropping low with a previous club, iN didn't give up and re-started activity with the first techno event in a former Le Mirage club in Baku. 200 guests gathered at the opening event of 3rd iN with Georgian artist The Forest.
The formation of rave culture in Baku continued in the two-room club located in the center of the city. One of our longest raves, the New Year's Eve finished at 4PM.
During this period DJs like Newa, Stanislav Tolkachev, Noizar and Gio Shengelia performed at iN stage.
The season closing subsequently turned into the club's closure because of regular complaints and threads from neighbors.
Several small clubs offered us their space, the most suitable one was the club called "Underground". But because of the capacity of the space and our long-term and large-scale arrangements inspired by the development of underground scene in Georgia have led us to search for an alternative and more suitable space. Later this club renamed as "Sintetik". We have held 5 events there as iN with headliner artists like Newa, Vako T, Michael Wells, OTHR, Sancho.
Later we held a night with Michael Wells in KHIDI, Georgia and Blazej Malinowski in the Czech Neon Club.
iN opened its 4th location in a Publishing Factory. Fully relying on our own strength we built a new rave place from scratch in about 2 months, giving an abandoned factory a second life. More than 350 people gathered at the event with the participation of VID a.k.a Egal 3.
Despite all the work, time and power spent, the second event with Alex.Do as a headliner got canceled with locks put on our gate one hour before the event, because the factory management considered us as a big thread.
4 places, all the previous work, love and expenses lived for just 1 day, but a very happy day indeed.
We renewed the anti-record - 1 day.
Tbilisi's KHIDI club has given great support to iN at our hardest times with an opportunity to hold 2 iN nights in their venue. 130 ravers from Baku took a tour bus to Georgia to attend the event with Unbalance as the headliner of the night.
Even though the event was not held in Baku, iN was still alive.
Believing in our own strength at all the times during the last 4 years, we found ourselves in the fifth venue built inside of an abandoned factory of Valuable Papers located in 3rd micro district of Baku, Jeyhun Salimov street.
More than 400 people gathered at the opening event with the participation of Kwartz.
This number grew up to 600 at the event with Anthony Linell a.k.a Abdulla Rashim.
