(2 Sep, Amsterdam, Netherlands)
ZeeZout Festival creates a moment for memories at Tuinen van West with this single-day house and techno festival. A temporary space curated to let you fully be present. Vivid, lively, and sharp as ever. Loose like never before.
ZeeZout is one that thrives on dance culture, with a dance floor, DJs, and people who dance to it. But this dance culture is fluid, and so much more than that. They believe in exploring dance culture beyond the borders of our own parties. All beautiful, mind-blowing, and weird assets of it. From love to ecstasy, sweat to armpits, nerves to goosebumps, and every feeling in between.
Connecting people through this culture, making strangers friends, and making friends dance, and, like any culture, it doesn’t only exist in the places you expect it to, and it exists wherever people want it to exist, wherever you want it to exist.
So, with an open mind, they aim to explore this phenomenon. It’s not about finding ‘the true dance culture’ or finding the truth, for that matter. Because of the fluidity, there simply is none. It’s about the excitement of the unknown. They constantly re-evaluate, adapt, and explore, just as our visitors.
