special one-time performance during amsterdam dance event 2017
One of our favourite spots in Amsterdam has to be the bicycle passage through the Rijksmuseum. I pass this passage daily and I can’t get enough of it. Soon a special event will take place over here. On October 20 during the Amsterdam Dance Event 2017 there is a special performance by Underworld, promoted by Audio Obscura. The electronic music band will give a one-time free live performance in the passage of the Rijksmuseum.
A unique opportunity to see the British group in an intimate setting. Underworld is known to be as easy a headliner at the world’s largest festivals, as well as in art galleries, department stores and underground techno clubs. Underworld gained worldwide acknowledgement with their hit ‘Born Slippy’ in 1996, which became the soundtrack of the movie Trainspotting. The band now exists for almost thirty years and scores with hits like Cowgirl and Two months off.
Are you a real Underworld fan? Make sure you are at the speech that the band will give on October 18 during ADE 2017. Band members Karl Hyde and Rick Smith will talk about the power of collaboration.
Ps: There is only limited space in the bicycle passage of the Rijks, so if you want to be here, don’t forget to sign up here! On October 17 the registration closes.
