Not the usual rave, but a party with a purpose

Where good vibes flow thanks to an epic line up, but also because we set the stage for five courageous Amsterdam-based creative entrepreneurs. They do good for refugees and all funds raised will be donated to their initiatives. So if you are into disco, techno, house music and you give a damn come party with us.

Line up

Some of Amsterdam’s finest DJ’s and bands make this the night you’ll never forget. The music ranges from groovy disco and Syrian sounds, to edgy house and techno. And when you’re tired of dancing, there are some wicked games to play.

The initiatives

Your funds will be used for:

  • Meals
  • Scholarships
  • Start-ups
  • Sheltersuits
  • Lodges


We are a group of Amsterdam-based entrepreneurs and creatives. Late 2015, when the flow of refugees reached a peak, we realized we needed to do something for them, something big. But since there are already many meaningful initiatives around, we decided to empower the entrepreneurs who are already doing fantastic work, but could use the extra attention.
