Amsterdam club Radio Radio has been granted permission to remain open for two more years.
The pop up space will now operate in its current guise — half DJ bar, half pizzeria — until 2021, according to a post on the venue's official Facebook Page. It was originally intended to run for just five months.
Amsterdam has a new club, Lofi, which opened on 17th October with a ZeeZout warehouse party as part of this year's ADE.
Located in the Sloterdijk district, it's the brainchild of Slapfunk's Nelson Yogh Niemel and Samuel Taselaar, founder of Nomads Festival.
Since the launch event — which saw the likes of Midland, Optimo and Avalon Emerson play — names such as Rhadoo, Tama Sumo and Prosumer have all visited the venue, with crews including VBX and FUSE hosting parties.
Armin van Buuren has announced a special, one-off show, entitled This Is Me.
The This Is Me show will take place on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd May 2020 at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.
This Is Me is set to be a very special live experience for trance fans, an amalgamation of all van Buuren's professional life brought together into one show.
On the show, Armin van Buuren says:
Marcel Dettmann's set from Dekmantel 2019 has been made available online.
The recording lasts just under two hours, capturing the momentum we associate with the Berghain resident. Tracks from the likes of O & V & R ('Reversing Into Tomorrow') and Gerd ('Arkest's Blaze') feature, alongside a classic cut from the legendary DJ Rush ('Djax-Up Beat'— released by the iconic label of almost the same name back in 2000) .
Amsterdam club Claire is set to close for good early next month.
The venue originally opened in 2016 in a space based on Rembrandt Square in the city. The owners' statement announcing the closure cited financial reasons for the decision and added that a "new team" would take over the space. It's not known whether that team will continue to run it as a club.
