Parties

We present to you: 5 evenings of dancing and partying hard.  We’ve selected some really dope live bands and DJ’s. Every night we hold a competition and a midnight surprise. We kick off the evening with an Upside Down starter, not to be missed!

As we like to party late, we never finish before 4 in the morning.

 

Single evening tickets are available. Check the registration page.

 

Be ready for some pre- and afterparties. We’ll visit some local bars where we used to create a crazy atmosphere.

The first evening, none other than our local Big Band ‘t Mouvement will warm up your feet.
