Fri/Sat 18 & 19 Aug, Rebel Up NL weekender > Amsterdam @ De Ruimte + Leeuwarden @ Psy-Fi Festival

Hello NL!

This friday & saturday we’ll play a free gig in Amsterdam and at the psychedelic Psy-Fi in the Friesland nature near Leeuwarden.

Friday @ alternative venue De Ruimte in Amsterdam-Noord. During the summer they have their terrace open with live acts and DJ’s.

With Rebel Up we’ll host friday evening with global tunes and hopefully also a live act! Free in! from 20h til midnight.
FB event.

Then next day, saturday, we’ll go up north to Friesland province, for the Psy-Fi festival in a natural park area of De Groene Ster with lakes and such, nature bliss!

Psy-Fi calls itself a psychedelic festival, so not a typical Goa trance festival as there is much more on offer. From yoga, tantric & body awareness and artistic area’s to several music stages of which also a world music stage called the Global Theatre with live acts & DJ’s and the place where we will play a dance set 🙂
Also our Brussels friends of live act Memo Pimiento will join us, wepa! For sure it will be a psychedelic, colourful experience, fingers crossed for sun!

see for full info, timetables & tickets on the Psy-Fi website and FB event

Saturday 29th of January: Rebel Up! Soundclash with DJ BUSHDOOF, DJ POLYESTA & Rebel Up! DJs/VJs @ OCCII

Still feelin’ stuffy, hey ?

You’re not quite finished with your chocolate box and your waistline resembled a creamy croissant with an invisible belly button. It’s normal, it’s global. Happy faces for a happy new year plenty of crisis and resistance against it. Most of us ate plenty for this end of 2010, the snow didn’t prevent us from reaching the turkey’s butt. Wilders gets his own licked more than ever by the local parliament and there’s anarchy in Belgium. The salmon flies above the homeless and the shit of a banker does not want to produce gold yet. On this “divide and rule” game, indignation taken into action remains the best arm.  In order to connect and talk about real good common resolutions for the future, the OCCII and its Rebel Up! Soundclash is a perfect venue for that. We will bring you the atmosphere necessary to redeem your stomach and cruise the world’s perspective. Through what means of transportation ?

HOBO DREAMS OF CINEMATIC SALVATION (Los Angeles/US)
Paolo Davanzo and Lisa Marr have been touring the world for the past 20 years as musicians, filmmakers and ambassadors of cinematic goodwill. When they are not running the Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles, they tour the world singing folks songs to accompany silent Super 8 films they have shot on their travels. From the Mongolian Steppe to the Streets of Mexico City, sit back and relax as these images and sounds are presented as a lullaby of memory and dreams. We’re lucky to have them as they’re just a few days in Europe by the invitation of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Be on time, they’ll play around midnight!

DJ POLYESTA (NL) has gained the rank and right to travel in a magic carpet, swifter, smoother, that fits her attitude to music. On the outskirt of all-lands, she seems to have create her own place where her guests are invited to float in an elegant compound of styles. Like a druid, she’ll combined each force into a musical entanglement and vaporized it as a BalkanAfricarribeoceAsiatic trail. Bring your carpet and maybe one or two cushions if you want to follow her.

DJ BUSHDOOF (Melbourne/AU/A’dam) will use his rickshaw to stroll within the small streets of Laos, filled with charismatic songs and fumes of grilled pork. He’ll bargain his ride for a green 125cc Suzuki and jump into the Favelas of Rio and deal some gems for Baile funk sake. Suddenly reappearing in an electrified tram on Brooklyn Ave. Seeking the right cap, electro hip-hop, electro / pure / hip hop. Within these choices, our local DJ will use the Jamdown decision “Take ’em all, leave none behind”.

The REBEL UP! CREW will take a viral pleasure to ensure sound attraction and visual prospection. We are coming back with more intriguing sounds than ever. With us a Chaabi singer meets easily with a Dubsteppa MC, fresh 2010 tecnocumbia from the Andes collides with South Indian folkpop down to the dance circles of Soweto. We keep it on a no-ground level!

With the knowledge of these eclectic sounds and the temperature it’s going to bring you should also be aware that you coming represents a good step in the means of helping others and enjoying it. By leaving a 5 euro fee at the entrance and maybe a little more, you’ll support an organisation that develops goodwill projects especially in Africa. The name of the organization is Warriors Without Weapons. So here’s one mutual resolution that works !
