High on our wish-list for the line-up at our Paradiso benefit was Bettie Serveert and we're very pleased that they confirmed recently! Bettie Serveert was also playing at our very first (house-warming) party here at ADM, back in November 1997
DJ Isis was high on our wish-list as well and we're very pleased that she confirmed too!
Amsterdam - February 7, 2018
ADM CELEBRATES ITS RIGHT TO EXIST IN PARADISO.
Today the judge rejected the municipality’s short term plans to evict Amsterdam’s last cultural free-space ADM. On Wednesday 28 February Paradiso opens its doors to ADM to celebrate this victory.
Today the Raad van State, the Dutch High Court for administrative law, decided as an interim measure that the outcome of ADM's Appeal against the municipality’s plan should be awaited. This means that the planned eviction of the ADM-community is suspended, and the outcome of the appeal remains uncertain.
ADM has been under pressure for some time. The residents as well as sympathizers from all over the world are working together to preserve Amsterdam's last sanctuary of free creative expression. ADM will celebrate today’s verdict visibly and audibly, in colourful manifestations, all throughout the city, starting in the Paradiso.
Paradiso itsself was rescued from demolition by the squatting-movement 50 years ago. In support, the music-temple Paradiso that it is today, will open its doors to the ADM!
During the evening of Wednesday 28 February, Paradiso will be filled with creativity, art and other forms of cultural expression that ADM has to offer.
The theme of this night is: 'Space Invaded'
Some highlight of the line-up are: Bettie Serveert, Bl3nder & DefP, Dj Isis, Dj Bone, Convoi Exceptional, Deadwood, Dj Gibbo b2b, Dj Adi J, NunsWithGunsVJ, Fer à Coudre and Suwanne's Clit-Club
ADM invites everyone at this time of threat and social repression to stand up for a just Amsterdam, in which everyone is equal.
Support ADM and come on Wednesday February 28 to Paradiso to enjoy lots of beautiful creations and creatures!
