Explore the Dutch underground with L.A.N.

Melkweg Expo and Subbacultcha honour rising talent.


Delving deep into the Netherlands’ alternative art/music scene, Melkweg Expo and Subbacultcha unite to bring you music and photography for the whole month of December. With each partner having a strong fascination for rising talent, the two have fused to present a collection of photographs that captures emerging acts that have all been featured in Subbacultcha over the past two years.

Expect a concise selection of photographers and musicians that revive the industry with fresh creations and dedication to their chosen medium. L.A.N. (Local Area Network) is a commemoration of the visual and audible arts, formed by the coming together of forward-thinking young artists.

Of course this occasion must be celebrated—with not one, but two events. During the opening night on 1 December, L.A.N. Exhibition opens its arms and welcomes viewers to “celebrate the beauty of creation and collaboration”. Waterlelyck has been invited to provide the soundtrack, and Jupiler will generously be providing beer. In a final celebration on 23 December, the much-awaited L.A.N. Party will take place at Melkweg with a line-up that surely will have you up all night.

Featured artists: Wessel Baarda (Red Light Radio), Verena Blok (The Mauskovic Dance Band), Iris Duvekot (Meduse MagiQ), Maurice van Es (Red Light Radio), Zahra Reijs (Sevdaliza), Eva Reinalda (Iguana Death Cult), Annabel van Royen (Waterlelyck), Gilleam Trapenberg (Torus & SMIB) and Isolde Woudstra (The Homesick & Idiott Smith)
