Amsterdam, September 6th - 8th
The shock has just about passed for the end of Summer. As we mourn, let us also celebrate! There’s still so much going on in Amsterdam. This week, there’s Samba, plenty of truffle pasta, bouldering, and a couple of cracking nights out. Whether you want to get cosy indoors or stay resolute under the elements, read on for a run down of what’s on in Amsterdam in week #1 of September.
Fancy heading to stuff like this and meeting new people? Check out the activities happening on the AD platform here!
Acid Pauli all night long @ Marktkantine
The connotations of ‘all night long’ could not be more dependant on how much you like the DJ. But it’s tricky to imagine anyone not getting excited for Acid Pauli playing at Marktkantine. His melodic beats are psychedelic, adventurous, and full of musicality. I think this song epitomises him.
Head there for a musical expedition this Friday. Worth grabbing a ticket!
Opening: Le Grand Meaulnes / Pretty girls make graves
Watching pretty girls making graves can safely be categorised among the stranger of hobbies. If that’s your sort of thing, we must disappoint you. If you like contemporary art, fashion, and meeting other creatives, then this is for you!
Come along at 5pm to say a toast to Juliaan Andeweg and the Amsterdam Art Gallery at Capital C. Get a sneak preview of his original work at the cutting edge of new media.

Samba & Caipirinhas
How’s your Samba? Whatever you said, you can be safe in the knowledge it’s better than mine. Whether you need a few Caipirinhas to get you moving, or prefer to dance away with a clear head, make your way to WestergasTheater and get ready to pull some shapes.
We’ve got a group heading there together. So if you fancy some drinking company or a little dance instruction, join in via our app and take Roda by storm together.
Spaghetteria Amsterdam - Il weekend del tartufo
The much loved Amsterdam pasta bar is importing everybody’s favourite underground mushroom into their menus this weekend. The long awaited return of the mysterious black fungus is going to hit hard, and ease the painful transition to Autumn.
Spaghetteria has restaurants all over Amsterdam. Bear in mind that reservations aren’t possible, so you might have a little wait if you’re in a big group or come at a busy time.
Garage Noord Interstellar
Garage Noord brings the Amsterdam touch of chic practicality to the rough and ready walls of an old garage. Shrouded under red light and haze, this intimate venue promises a great atmosphere.
Interstellar Funk is playing all night. Catch him for a creative mashup of techno and classic funk. Tickets just €9 on the door. Worth swinging by SkateCafe next door for a couple drinks beforehand.
Lab Experiments & BBQ
Het Lab are celebrating their new colour grading with an eight week long competition. This weekend, they are kicking off with a BBQ, plus prizes for those with the most points at the end! Where tensions escalate in the heat of competition, everything will cool down with a shared BBQ at 15:30.
The competition will be going on into the Autumn, so check it out this Sunday to rouse your spirit and see if you’re a prospect for the grand prize!
Culturele Zondag: Syrische Muziek & Dans
De Hallen’s Cultural Sunday celebrates the creativity and individuality of peoples across the world. This time: Syrian music and dance!
There’s musical performances, space to dance, plus workshops designed specially for both kids and adults. You can check out some authentic Syrian products in the market too. Plus, you’re half a minute’s walk from Foodhallen if you get peckish
