After a short summer break, Paard’s programmers are eager to present new unforgettable concert and club nights in their pop temple. That’s why Paard opens her doors not only with a regular concert night, but with a bunch of self-acting acts (Hausmagger, Palmbomen II and Boef) and crazy afterpartys at the Paard van Stal festival on 1 September. “We wanted to present a line-up as diverse as our program throughout the whole year,” says programmer Henk Koolen. “The names we present are some of our personal favorites,” adds Eva von der Assen. “We wanted to keep the entrance free, to do something in return for our regular visitors.”
Main hall: Boef, Amber Arcades and more
In the Main Hall you can find two of the most promising acts of last season: indiepopband Amber Arcades and the Dutch rap sensation and multi-award winning BOEF. Both acts played some of the biggest festivals/ The afterparty will be hosted by our own famous 80,90 and zero’s dj’s. For those who aren’t aware of this party: it’s gonna be a lot of dancing!
Small hall: Hausmagger, Palmbomen II and more
In the Small Hall temperatures will rise with the Amsterdam based reggae collective The Dubbeez and the rapid surfrock of Hausmagger ( with ex-Rembo & Rembo member Ted Wesselo). R&b/jazz singer Jaskelis, who won the ‘Grote Prijs of Rotterdam’, will be performing right after them. The party continuous with the vintage acid house of Palmbomen II, the solo project of house producer Kai Hugo. Until the end of the night local heroes Twice Upon A Time and Jeans will keep you moving with their tasty dj sets.
Paardcafé: After a rigorous renovation, opened for the first time during the festival
On 1 September, we will not only be celebrating a new concert season but also the opening of a completely new Paardcafé! The renovation is scheduled for this summer and the transformation is being addressed rigorously.
With a larger podium, a new bar, an upgraded soundsystem, airco, a new garderobe and toilets the Paarcafé will be perfect to host some of the Paard van Stal acts such as the dreamy soul of Nana Adjoa, the indiemusic of Pip Blom and the one of a kind hiphop collective Brandwerk?
The audience can then take a look at the completely renewed stage for the first time! Do you want to know more about the renovation or contribute yourself? Check out https://www.voordekunst.nl/projecten/5990-verbouwing-paardcafe-1
