  • Utrecht Open Deck Evenings?

    I'm going to Utrecht record fair in April. In preparation I've ceased to purchase any records. I've done a month so far!

    Anyhow, really looking forward to breaking my vinyl fast but I've always wondered if there is any sort of evening in a pub/bar/other venue where people can turn up with their finds and do a little DJ set?
    Cheese Please Louise!!!

    TUMBLEWEED!

    That would be a "no", then... I've always wondered why there's not an event for people to spin their finds - maybe it would descend into total chaos? One guy plays his death metal finds, followed by a northern soul dude, followed by a Golden Earring completist, followed by a schlager enthusiast, followed by a free jazz collector etc etc . But you'd assume there would at least be a proper club night, but never managed to find one. Although I've not looked too hard, I'm usually knackered anyway...

      been a few times to Utrecht and sometimes I even feel there's too much of a lack of music in the fair itself..... there's s small stage near the main bar with a few band / dj's on but some corners of the both halls can be very quiet at times; ...for someone like myself who buys lot's of genres my mood can change in a flash and sometimes hearing music whilst digging can inspire me in other directions....the amount of times I've walked into a record shop and heard something being played and it's thrown me in a different course looking in diff sections- it's a good thing) ......so respect to the stalls that blast out tunes during the day.......FK crew usually the loudest to be fair

      there's usually opportunities to go for a drink with other plussers if you shout up on here before the fair..... I've met dues from here there

      I've done a fair bit of drinking around Utrecht and always had it in mind to ask any bars to do a take over on Utrecht weekends but tbh I've never happened upon anywhere that felt suitable for it...i.e. a cosy off kilter bar with some decks.

      In November I was lucky to have stayed in hostel Strowis which I quickly realised is the best hostel in Utrecht....as they have a turntable in the hostel and at November's fair I was up until the early hours playing records with other diggers in an open deck style.....had a complete blast;...... esp with the guys from Peru .......this hostel (Strowis) is rightly v popular however and I tried to book it for November fair dates yesterday but it's already sold out....they have a lot of regulars who stay every time!!

      Enjoy April......giving it a miss due to finances but definitely back in November.
