Did you already made plans for your Whitsunday weekend? Unfortunately the weather promises us no good… Still, we would like to share a few weekend favorites with you:
One. This week the RIGHTABOUTNOW Festival kicked off at the Amsterdam MC Theatre. The festival is one of MC’s annual festivals that includes a razor sharp evening and night program full of cool and innovative musicians, dancers, theatre makers and artists presenting various ways and forms of art, cultures and subcultures. RIGHTABOUTNOW takes place until Sunday May 19.
Two. Tonight Westerunie is hosting a brand new clubnight named KAROUSEL. Karousel is exploring new movements, inspiring artists and musical directions with a strong focus on solid performers, who both strike as individual characters as well as artistically… Curious? Click here, buy your ticket and start celebrating the weekend with some fine house and techno beats.
Three. The infamous SFFEERVOL clubnight at Bitterzoet will be celebrating their 5th birthday on Saturday May 18. You will find dj Snelle Jelle, dj Irwan is presented as special guest of the evening and as the icing on a cake mr. Sffeervol Cream himself will be there as well.
Extra. And for our true dare devils who don’t care what the weather is going to bring, there’s DYINAMIC Festival on Saturday May 18. Deephouse label Diynamic and Studio 80 present this brand new, high quality spring festival together at the Arena Park in Amsterdam! In the summer of 2008, dj Solomun (Diynamic headhunter) made his Dutch debut in the Amsterdam club Studio 80. He returned to the club in 2009 for his first Diynamic label night. As for now, four years later… The collaboration between Studio 80 and Solomun reached a compleet, new high: the worlds first Diynamic Festival. See you there?
Have a nice weekend!

Come visit the fantastic open air restaurant at ‘Het Weekend van de Rollende Keukens‘. The event started yesterday May 9th and will end on Sunday May 12th 2013. Find your favorite dish(es) at this cool open air cuisine, created by countless mobile kitchens at the park of the Westergasfabriek.
After five successful years of outdoor mobile food fun, The Weekend Of The Rolling Kitchens (Rollende Keukens) will be back for its sixth edition.
There is no entrance charge, so it is that simple to stop by and have a few bites. A cool thing to know about the festival is; after the sun goes down there might be a chance to catch an open-air screening of a popular film…
Have a nice weekend!

At Blue Blood we sure can appreciate a nice mini-getaway. Today we like to introduce you to Our Friends from The Exchange Hotel.
Hotel The Exchange is a concept by Otto Nan and Suzanne Oxenaar, instigators of Lloyd Hotel & Culturele Ambassade.
The Exchange shares a love for fashion. Each room of the Exchange has been decorated by Students of Amsterdam Fashion Institure (AMFI). This way around the hotel presents a unique place, in which fashion and architecture come together.
Altogether the hotel counts 61 rooms, varying from one to five-star rooms. As the complete Exchange estate, occupies three buildings, of which one dates from the 17th century… Within the same building you may find the ’contemporary department store Options!‘ and restaurant Stock for a late breakfast or lunch.
