Northern Soul Amsterdam Mini Weekender: December 2018

Northern Soul Amsterdam Mini Weekender: December 2018 magazine cover

Following on from the sell-out success of the first Northern Soul Amsterdam mini weekender in 2017, we’re doing the whole thing all over again! Come and visit us for a 2nd LOST WEEKEND of top quality rare soul, classy crossover, funk, R&B and more, right in the heart of soul city Amsterdam!

The DJs:

DJs confirmed for our 2nd small but mighty Northern Soul Amsterdam Lost Weekend are Gerd Baum (Germany), Lars Bulnehim (Austria), Matt Fox (Germany), Mick Heffernam (UK), Dani Herranz (Spain), Friedemann Klock (Germany), Pete Lyster (UK), Andy Skelson (NL), plus Northern Soul Amsterdam residents Pete45 & Loma Russ and a selection of local DJs. All events are strictly original vinyl only.

It’s the perfect time to head to Amsterdam, not just for a weekend fix of great soul music in a small and friendly venue, but also for all your Christmas shopping. Something else you might want to consider is that Amsterdam boasts an incredible 29 (yes, 29!) record shops.

Experience a soulful Lost Weekend in Amsterdam! Come for the great tunes and friendly atmosphere while celebrating Northern Soul Amsterdam’s 3rd anniversary in the city of bridges, canals, bicycles and much, much more. Discover hidden record shops, go Christmas shopping, take in the festive lights, indulge in a canal boat cruise, and enjoy the relaxed cafés and fascinating museums.

Friday 7th December

Soul Night
20:30-02:30 (Ticket only)
Start off your Lost Weekend with a night of top quality rare soul played by our impressive line-up of DJs. We won’t be finishing too late on the Friday so you have the chance to enjoy the sights of Amsterdam on Saturday before picking up the soul grooves again.

Saturday 8th

Mid-tempo and mellow session
14:00-18:00 (Free event)
Relax and enjoy an afternoon chill out session of deep, sweet and mid-tempo soul and more. Grab a bite to eat while enjoying the music. Use Café Batavia as a base and go Xmas shopping, record hunting, or explore the city and take in the picturesque sights that make Amsterdam such a beautifully soulful destination.

Saturday 8th

Soul Night
20:30-02:30 (Ticket only)
The intimate environment of Café Batavia will again provide the venue for what will be a second full-on night of top quality soul, deep funk, classy crossover, R&B and a whole lot more played by our superb line-up of Lost Weekend DJs.

The venue:

Café Batavia is a small and intimate venue with a private party feel. A traditional Dutch “brown café” housed in a listed art deco building dating to 1920, our venue stands opposite Amsterdam Centraal Station and is just a few doors away from the impressive Basilica of St Nicholas, which dominates the station's skyline. Café Batavia has an excellent selection of bottled, draught beers and other beverages and serves great food until 21:30 each day. We'll be taking over Café Batavia for our mini weekender, which means two rooms for music as well as the bar area.


Weekender tickets:

To ensure a cosy, intimate and private party feel, ticket numbers are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Quality over quantity is our aim.

Weekend passes are available at a cost of just 20 euros per person. This includes entry into both the Friday and Saturday soul nights. The Saturday afternoon "mid-tempo and mellow" session at Café Batavia is free for everyone.

Tickets are available from Russell Gilbert via PaPal. Send payment to: rigilbert@lomarecords.com

Please include your name and address so that tickets can be posted to you a little later in the year.
