8Bahn Harbour Festival
ARNHEM (NL), 3-4 september 2016

waiting at the door – 3PM

It was the 3rd week I moved to Netherlands, more precisely in Arnhem, Gelderland, almost at the border with Germany.
As every real clubber I already checked out every kind of club, festival or possible event concerning techno music within 100km: 8Bahn Harbour Festival (RA) is something you cannot miss here, the all neighbourhood is on fire waiting for this event.
I found a last-minute ticket (15€ instead of 25€) on ticketswap.nl and I got there (3pm) without expecting anything special: I was completely wrong.

open air stage – 4 PM

Funktion-One soundsystems are everywhere, great 8bahn organization, 3 stages riverside (indoor warehouse, open-air stage and handmade sound system area) plus one boat-party sailing every hour (at the price of 5€).

boatparty #2 – 5PM

Really impressed by their high-quality and full of energy line-up: prominent artists of local and Dutch scene, sought with taste and passion.
Venue is called “Havenloods” and this is 8Bahn, a team of young guys growing faster and faster, able to create magical atmosphere and to make you feel home: I remained even night time for the after.

afterparty, indoor stage – 2AM

Two months later, at an afterparty, I found out that I’ve been published on the local newspaper with a pic of the boatparty: amazing!
