Zodiak Commune celebrates 18th birthday in Waalhalla

24 January 2012 ,

The Eindhoven organization Zodiak Commune is perhaps a bit late with its 18th birthday, but on the special date 3.03 they make amends double for this with a true unbirthday party in Waalhalla Nijmegen.

During "EIGHTEEN +“ your world is completely turned upside down from 22:00 to 06:00 with a strong program that brings out the best from the underground.

While during Update 2.0.12 on the 7th of January this year people danced on the holy grounds of the Natlab in Eindhoven - where more than half a century ago the first symphony of electronic bleeps and noises was produced - on Saturday the 3rd of March 2012 Zodiak Commune takes you to the city where they organized their legendary Liquid Foundation parties at the Kolpinghuis fifteen years ago. The old TDK tapes with acidic acid as the only reminder of that time can be put back into the closet, as during "EIGHTEEN +” you are going to relive it all over again in Waalhalla. Allthough the music has developed since then and the DJs have mounted many other venues, all have remained faithful to the quirky but accessible underground vibe that Zodiak Commune has been known for already for over 18 years.

For one night Waalhalla will be transformed into the world of Zodiak Commune, where nothing is what it is and everything is what it is not. While the drive in the main hall is already in motion with corrosive acid and trippy techno bleeps in the beginning of the evening, the raging Tekno train later in the evening will spin more around than just the hands of the clock. In the Dubstep & Drum 'n Bass café too you experience anything but an stationary night in an atmosphere where rough basses, piercing hi-hats and other wild sounds call the shots. Want to escape from the festivities for some rest, space and a chat? Then you can retreat into the Space Out. No hysterical tea parties with mad hats here, but an oasis of tumbling beats and steaming soundscapes.
