For Amsterdam Pride, we partnered with the organisers of the multi-genre music festival, Milkshake, to bring you a fabulous evening of performances at Soho House Amsterdam from some of the city’s most talented queer performers. On the roster for the night were Zu Browka, Shady Lady, Mia Cecile and Doppelgang, with DJ sets that ranged from 1980s disco and synth-funk to deep Chicago house and bumpy breakbeat. Alongside their sets, dancers and drag queens posed, vogued and sashayed across the dance floor. Headlining it all was Dutch legend and global rising talent, Carista, with a set that swung between soul, electro-house, garage, and everything in between.
We also hosted a club takeover in our Canal Room with electro-pop DJ and producer LYZZA, who brought experimental sounds to the House, blending techno and hardcore with dancey pop beats, alongside DJs Diora and Miss Araxta.
