Club evening with live acts, DJs and a mix of exciting music styles
The Holland Festival goes on into the wee hours in the unpolished atmosphere of nightclub Lofi in Amsterdam’s western harbour area. On 3 June, this will feature Blue Lab Beats and Pink Oculus.
Let yourself be swept off your feet by the wonderful blend of jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk and R&B from the adventurous jazztronica duo Blue Lab Beats backed by two musicians on trumpet and saxophone. Following this, singer Pink Oculus (Esperanza Denswil) will perform in an audio-visual installation designed especially for her by Boris Acket - an optical temple inspired by elements from Afrofuturism. Backed by her band and violinist Yannick Hiwat, Pink Oculus sings about black and female empowerment and the strength of her ancestors, who were Maroons: liberated enslaved people in Suriname.
The live acts are followed by extravagant DJ sets from Catu Diosis (Uganda) and Lofi favourites like DJ Esa (UK/South Africa) and Philou Louzolo (Netherlands). More than enough vibes to keep going until the wee hours!

OCULUS is an audio-visual installation developed for Pink Oculus by audio-visual artist Boris Acket, spatial designer Dennis Vanderbroeck and researcher Vincent van Velsen. Different media were used for the installation: spatial design, light design and audio-reactive design. What is unique about OCULUS is the convergence of design, music and substantive research.
