This is how you beat a Kingsday comedown

Revel in brainy beats at Progress Bar Amsterdam.


Stack up on some enlightening thoughts and revel in brainy beats this Saturday with the return of Progress Bar. The Amsterdam club affair will be hosting an all-round event filled with inspirational talks and a music programme, sure to keep you going until the wee morning hours.

Meredith Greer will kick off the evening by expressing her thought-provoking ideas. The writer and determined feminist comes as a stroke of fresh air, protesting the cloying ideas pronounced by middle-aged white men [no offense]. With her delightful cynicism having appeared in De Volkskrant and Vrij Nederland, amongst others, Greer is currently claiming an important spot out there—and deservedly so, because she tells it like it is.

After Greer has you fired up, (re-)igniting the feminist spark within you, channel on that same energy through to a conversation with DJ-slash-producer Lotic, who is currently operative in Berlin’s underground. Tension seems to characterize a majority of Lotic’s tracks, which are a blissful dismay, balancing between soft and hard, bold and timid. But rest assured, Lotic won’t just be talking about his progressive beats; he’ll be showcasing his skills during an hour-long set later on that night.

In fact, the entire night is filled with sets that fuck all edicts and help you shrug them off on the dance floor, where the only rule is to do whatever the hell you want. View the entire line-up here—wait, did we mention DJ Nigga Fox and Ziúr? In case you really can’t make it this Saturday, Progress Bar S02E07 will also be streamed live on Facebook.

29 April, 8.30pm until 4am

Paradiso Noord, Amsterdam
