18 January 2017 / Westergasfabriek (Music)
In the words of the Mothership: “In the Mothership we play it funky. Not yer disco-glitter-wig kinda pussy funk. But the dirty greasy gritty streetcorner kinda sweaty balls funk. So get your moves together and hit the floor.” Check this exciting show at Pacific Parc this coming Thursday night.
20 January 2018 / Dam Square
Every year on January there is a party right at the Dam: the opening of the tulip season with the official kick-off in Amsterdam. On Saturday the 20th of January 2018 it is time again, then the Dam will be transformed by growers into a tulip pluck garden with no less than 200,000 colorful tulips. Extra fun: this year is the theme of the National Tulip Day ‘romance’. Tulips have a rich symbolism. Therefore is the perfect opportunity to create an unforgettable present for that special person.
