A pretty cool two-day music festival in The Hague called Walk the Line is happening this weekend on Friday May 14 and Saturday May 15. Over 40 acts including AVI Buffalo, Bonobo, War Paint, Sleigh Bells will be performing in the city center in various squares, cafes, and clubs. I also love the festival’s web design. Tickets are 25 euros for a day pass and 40 euros for the whole event.
Hey yall, I made an Amsterdam playlist titled The Dam Jams for everyone to enjoy. There’s no theme, just random songs I really like listening to right now in Amsterdam. If you’re into Die Antwoord, Chaka Khan, or Bone Thug you might enjoy it!
The main goal of Music Hack Days is to explore and build the next generation of music applications. It’s a full weekend of hacking in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects. Music, software, hardware, art, the web. Anything goes as long as it’s music related.
This is a shout out to my friend Taylor Browning, she loves Joanna Newsom and tickets to her show might be enough temptation to get her to come visit me in Amsterdam. Anyways, Joanna Newsom is coming to Amsterdam on May 30th at the Melkweg. Special guest Roy Harper will also be joining her. Get your tickets here.
Of course it’s already sold out but many of my friends have found it pretty easy to scalp tickets in this city soooo maybe you can snag some tickets for MGMT and Zombie Zombie, performing at the Melkweg March 28.
