After the success of the first edition of pool party Float in February a second edition of this party is planned in Vlaardingen. The day before, on Friday October 25th, swimming pool De Kulk and pop venue De Kroepoekfabriek, in collaboration with the organization of the drum and bass party Liquidation, will add a spectacular evening with big names from the United Kingdom and the US.
Rory Dickhoff, one of the organizers, says: “A big, professional pool party is a big project. After the first edition of Float, however, we knew immediately that we wanted to do this more often. Float, however, focuses primarily on house, disco and related styles. We got the call from our following to give other styles a place too.”
That place is called for. In collaboration with the organization Liquidation, a second pool party has been set up where drum and bass is central. Programmer Elroy Timmermans: “In principle, Liquidation is a one-off project in this setting. We wanted to make it extra special. That is why we have opted for three DJ’s with a good track record that fit in perfectly with the summery, warm atmospheres of a tropical swimming pool.
The program includes Nu:tone, Commix and Submorphics, supplemented by regional DJ’s from the Liquidation stable. Nu: tone and Commix are both from the UK, Submorphics is originally from San Francisco, USA. The trio has released work on the largest record labels within the drum and bass and can count on a large number of fans throughout the Netherlands.
Timmermans: “Within the drum and bass there are many substyle styles. A swimming pool is sunny and summery, so we focus on the liquid drum and bass. The dark, bombastic sound is in second place.”
The decor will match that sound. “We are going to turn out a lot in terms of light and decor. It really has to be a special experience. The first edition of Float was already magical, but now we really want to surpass ourselves with Liquidation and the second edition of Float. ”
Ticket sales for both Liquidation and Float has already started and is going fast. You can also buy combi tickets for those who want to go to both parties. Tickets are available at www.liquidationdnb.nl. House lovers can visit www.floatfestival.nl
