Event Information

We are delighted… no… we're absolutely thrilled to announce that our special guest DJ will be Pete Lyster, who'll be bringing his incomparable box of magnificent rarities, top-draw classics and super soulful gems. We'll also be joined behind the decks by Dave and Lynne Girdwood, who'll be coming all the way from Scotland. They both packed the floor at Northern Soul Amsterdam earlier in the year with a fantastic selection of 45s. Pete Lyster, Dave & Lynne Girdwood - what a combination! But wait… there's more...

To make sure the soul magic lasts for as long as possible, the night will begin two hours earlier than usual. So, the fun begins at 7:30pm through til 2:30 am! But wait, there's still more!

Everyone coming along will get a free Northern Soul Amsterdam button badge to have, to hold and to treasure! Northern Soul Amsterdam - small but most certainly mighty!

Perfectly situated, Cafe Batavia is just a few minutes away from Centraal Station. Wooden dance floor. Air conditioning. Dedicated smoking room. More than 40 different biers! Food served all night.

One of Europe's best kept secrets - great little venue with a big atmosphere, crowd totally up for any tunes as long as they're danceable. Brilliant hosts, always an honour to play here...if you haven't been would highly recommend it, top line up for future nights

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

Just started getting the box together, trying to work out just what KLM will allow me to keep in my sticky fingers all thro' the flight and not have to be put in the hold, 

And the last few times I've dj'd in Amsterdam I think I've maybe underestimated the knowledge and how sussed up you lot / locals are ; well not this time !

I don't want Pete, Russ or Dave on my case - so this time we really go for it ! 

See you Sat.

Or maybe, before,  ( in the Irish pub for Man. United  v   the other lot for the  [ uk ] 12.30 kick off ) ?

well done Russ and Pete

Didn't see anyone who wasn't having a good time - seemed like everyone danced at one time or another, great enthusiasm and atmosphere. Loved all the music that was played ; very thoughtful sets and completely atb. DJ's sets complemented each other but with a lovely friendly determination to keep pushing it and to keep the standards up and up and dig deep too.


Nice one !

Greatly appreciated, Pete. Thanks a lot! The venue might be small, but that helps create a great atmosphere. We were absolutely delighted with the support from the UK, and especially those who came from your part of the world.

Of course, it all means nothing if there's not great music to hold people's interest and get them out on the dance floor. And that's where you, and Dave and Lynne Girdwood, have to take so much of the credit. Your sets went down an absolute treat. And I have to wonder when we'll hear the like of them again - unless we twist your arm and get you to come back in the future. :D

Really, it was an amazing night and undoubtedly the highlight of Northern Soul Amsterdam's short existence so far. Brilliant!!
