Rave giants Innovation have announced the 2021 dates for their annual Innovation In The Dam weekender!
Over the years the pilgrimage to Amsterdam each November for this event has become a right of passage for countless die hard drum and bass lovers from across the globe. Many promoters have tried to copy the formula, but few have succeeded to muster the levels of excitement that Innovation In The Dam has surrounding it.
As we’re all painfully aware, the past year hasn’t fared well for club events or festivals (Unless you’re living in New Zealand!). The global Covid-19 pandemic, plus the social distancing & lockdowns that came with it, put stop to pretty much every event over the past 12 months.
With the vaccine roll out already underway across the UK and many European countries we’re optimistic that the world will be in a more positive place by late November… Let’s keep our fingers, toes & whatever else we can think of crossed!!!!
If all goes to plan, this years Inno In The Dam event will be taking place on 26th, 27th & 28th November 2021.
What To Expect
No line up information has been released just yet, but if past Innovation In The Dam events are anything to go by then expect a bloody good party! Let’s be honest, with its abundance of coffee shops, bars, historic sights to see & of course the unique Red Light district to experience, it’s hard not to have fun in Amsterdam.
Artists such as Andy C, Chase & Status, Hybrid Minds, DJ Hazard, DJ Hype, Dimension, Benny Page, Serial Killaz, Voltage & My Nu Leng have all graced the line ups in recent years. Innovation also bring in extra production & the mighty GHB sound system to make sure the bassline’s hit you with all the right frequencies.
Innovation’s home in Amsterdam has always been the excellent Melkweg club, situated just off Leidseplein Square in the heart of the city. Events will be taking place at Melkweg on the Friday & Sunday nights of this 3 day festival.
Saturday night will be located at Lofi, a venue not used by Innovation before. This club has famously hosted parties during the ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event). As far as we’re aware Innovation are the first to do a D&B event there!
Saturday daytime is when the 600 capacity boat party sets sail. This is Amsterdam’s largest drum & bass boat party. Definitely one for all you true hardcore D&B heads! Tickets for the boat party always sell out super fast so grab yours as soon as they go on sale.
