With Lowlands 2013 as one of the highlights of this summer, we feel it is time to look forward to the next great festival experience...

On Wednesday October 16th ADE kicks of with the book release of Mary Go Wild – 25 Years of Dance Music in the Netherlands’ in the Rabozaal area of the Melkweg, followed by a celebration featuring many of the artists who influenced nightlife over the past 25 years. The official opening includes performances by Quazar, Joost van Bellen, Secret Cinema, 2000 and One, Edwin Oosterwal, Michel de Hey, Steve Rachmad, and Fierce Ruling Diva… Would you like to join this exclusive event?

For those who think well of extremely danceable and catchy eighties synth-pop, please meet Capital Cities. A musical duo coming from Los Angeles who just released the ultimate summer record, In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery. Last month, the band started their first European tour together with a full live band. The main members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian are originally creators of radio jingles in Los Angeles. They met by chance through the American ad website Craigslist, where one of them was looking for a producer. The musical click was great and than soon reached further ambitions; Capital Cities was born and went hunting for perfect electro pop songs. You can find lots of cool songs collected on this debut album named In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery. You probably remember the song Safe and Sound, from the Vodafone commercial… This very catchy single kicks off the record. Andre 3000, from Outkast is featured another one of our favorite songs; Farrah Fawcett Hair. Click here to hear some more from Capital Cities.

Would you like to see these guys performing live? On the 4th of September Capital Cities’ European tour makes a stop at the Amsterdam Melkweg! Tickets are available via the Melkweg website.

At Blue Blood we love to spend our free summer time at the park; enjoying intimate outdoor concerts on summer Sundays… You can find this at the hidden gardens of the Open Air Theatre at the Amsterdamse Bos. A wonderful and unique place, designed to serve as a small amphitheater on warm summer nights. When all the lights ignite it feels like magic! Live at Amsterdamse Bos will only take place on two Sundays in August; the 18th and the 25th.

On Sunday August 18th you will find Andy Burrows. Entrace is €15,- and on Sunday the 25th LAB is presenting the Hooverphonic with Orchestra, for the costs of €20,-. Order your ticket(s) online and drown yourself into the wonderful world of the Amsterdamse Bos.

Also in Rotterdam there’s a cool open air film fest; Pleinbioscoop. Pleinbioscoop Rotterdam is Europe’s biggest open-air cinema and takes place from August 14th until the 1st of September 2013. The festival is open every day and is located at the Rotterdam Museumpark. The film programme starts at 12:15, but all visitors are welcome to join anywhere from 19:00 for dinner, drinks and live music. Each night, one of Rotterdam’s local bands will take the stage to complete the entire open-air movie experience…

The entrance for an evening at Pleinbioscoop Rotterdam is €4,- (!!). It is also possible to buy a ticket that allows you to attend 10 screenings, this ’10-rittenkaart’ costs €30,-. Two people can use it at once, so you can also choose to see five films with a friend. Tickets are being sold online and at the cash register at the Museumpark in Rotterdam, during the festival.

Enjoy, see you around!

Although it is a little cloudy, summer feelings are still there… In Haarlem they are responding to this by hosting Parksessies, a relaxing summer picnic with music, art and theatre. For four Wednesday evenings in July and August the city park, Haarlemmerhout will be transformed into a summer picnic paradise filled with various artists, theatre makers and musicians.

The sessions are being hosted by Joshua Baumgarten, also known as Mr. Weird Beard. This born American is one of the most important initiators of Rock ‘n’ Roll culture in Haarlem. Next to his own collective Irrational Libraryalready, Mr. Weird also owns a cool vintage store together with his wife Mara. The shop is located in the Doelstraat in Haarlem, where they regularly hosts fantastic instore-concerts, as you can find a healthy dose of art, cool kitch and instant coffee.

Our Friends from Picknick Rotterdam take care of a picnic-dinner as the Parkbar is the place to go for an ice cold drink… Think of nice Vedett beers, organic wines of the Grapedistrict and homemade lemonades. Last but not least there’s also Victor’s mobile espresso bar.

Do you have a Wednesday off, or like to relax after a busy day at work? Come sit down and drown yourself into the new picnic-style at the Haarlemmerhout park in Haarlem on July 24, July 31 and August 7… Entrance is for free, see you there!
