When What Where – last days of July

WWW is a cultural agenda focused on art, music, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability, community events & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

Dear friends,

One of the best-known feelings for bloggers like me – who don’t pay their rent from blogging – is guilt. Whenever you’re late with your blog posts or spend a long time in radio silence, you feel like a fraud. I really had to prioritize work that pays bills this past month though, hence this half-month cultural agenda. Better late than never, they say where I come from – I abide by that rule. Those of you who are subscribed to the newsletter have received some suggestions for July in their mailbox – the newsletter has priority over everything else – so if you’re one of those who don’t want to miss a thing, make sure to sign up for it.

So, what does the second half of July has to offer us? Find all about it out below.
Have a gorgeous summer y’all!

When What Where April

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go”.
Christopher Morley

Dear all,

Allow me to highlight three of the events I am SUPER looking forward to this month:

First of all, SHFT Happens, on Saturday 7! A one-day immersion where work feels like a retreat, where you get energy & nourishment from focusing and getting stuff done. Amsterdive partnered up with SHFT and we’re giving away discount codes – check all the info below.

Then, in the category of dancing as if there was no tomorrow, an evening of Lumberjacks in Hell at Noorderlicht, on Saturday 14, with the bright presence of DJs Mr Mendel, Marcel Vogel & Tom Noble!

Finally, in the category of culture, the concert “Symphonic Cinema: Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé’ a concert + film at Het Concertgebouw, courtesy of the Amsterdam Culture Club.

A cool thing? You can join me for all three of these programs – let me know if you do! And for now, enjoy the cultural agenda, and feel free to add any cultural suggestion of yours in the comments down below. 💫

5 bands from Amsterdam that won’t let you sit still

It is a mystery to me why haven’t I written about my favourite Amsterdam musicians before.

Good news number one: it’s never too late.
Good news number two: it’s not electronic music.
Good news number three: this is all very very danceable. In some cases, freaky-danceable (just invented the term, by the way).

Ah, bands from Amsterdam! Not the good old classics, not the über famous ones. Real bands composed of real people who make real sound and play in real concerts that real people attend. Some of these musicians are folks whose activity I follow closely because I KNOW that whatever they are involved in, it’s bound to be good (or simply put, bound to make me happy). This is how I have seen a couple of these bands a few times already (Furake, Conjunto Papa Upa) and don’t seem to get tired of it. If you’re into dancing like a freak, this is possibly going to be your pool as well. Let’s jump right in.

Oh, also, there’s a giveaway by the end of this article.
