Paradigm x ZeeZout 2024

Saturday, Feb 3, 2:00 PM, Paradigm, Groningen

Even though summer’s still so, so far away, a daytime festival is a welcome surprise no matter the season. Eleven artists, including S-candalo, DJ Europarking, Naone, Job Jobse, and Helena Hauff, make their way to Groningen’s old sugar factory for a day of fast-paced trance and bass-heavy techno.

ZeeZout and Paradigm’s events were among the most sought-after in 2023, so imagine the force on the floor when they team up. 

BASIS/ Rebekah all night long

Sat, 3 Feb, 23:00 • BASIS, NL

BASIS/ Rebekah all night long

Saturday, Feb 3, 11:00 PM, BASIS, Utrecht

Leave it up to Rebekah to entertain dancers all night long. She plays tracks so fast the speed is afraid of her and doesn’t shy away from basses that drill even the sturdiest ribcages.

To say Rebekah only plays techno would do her no justice because hardcore, breaks, and even hardstyle are nothing new to the London-based DJ. Catch her in BASIS, Utrecht’s rawest club, this Saturday.

JOY Gashouder | Day 1

Saturday, Feb 17, 3:00 PM, Gashouder Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam

One of the most iconic buildings in Amsterdam opens its doors to JOY, the house party originally hailing from Bloemendaal.

Even though the beach is far away and the sun hasn’t shown its face in weeks, the Gashouder will be 100% filled with housey, gooey, and sweaty vibes.

As the name implies, JOY is a party centered around fun. Allow special guest Franky Rizardo to warm your heart during his 4-hour set. 

Verknipt Presents: Basswell All Night Long

Fri, 23 Feb, 23:00 • Hemkade 48, NL

Verknipt Presents: Basswell All Night Long!

Saturday, Feb 23, 11:00 PM, Hemkade 48, Zaandam 

Powerful, fast, hard: many adjectives describe Basswell’s style, but his sound is best experienced live. Imagine a wall of sound coming your way and then some more; the French DJ never slows down during his sets.

Are you ready for a 7-hour-long journey soundtracked by the hardest and fastest tunes known to man? The Hemkade in Zaandam is the perfect backdrop for this night, as its industrial look and feel make you forget you haven’t left the dancefloor for hours now.
