Refuge Worldwide & Carhartt WIP announce Europe tour

16 events take place from 16 September - 08 December

By Staff

We're hitting the road! Building on the success of last year’s European tour, the Berlin-based radio station Refuge Worldwide returns to the road this autumn, this time in collaboration with Carhartt WIP. 

The parties and workshops start on 16 September, kicking off at Control Club in Bucharest, and end with a Berlin date on December 8th. Along the way, the tour will stop in Istanbul, Tbilisi, Brussels, Amsterdam, London, Ghent, Paris, Copenhagen, Cologne, Warsaw, Lisbon and Turin. 

There will be sets from artists including rRoxymore, Ece Özel, Sansibar, Hunee, Anu, Bradley Zero, Tikiman, JADALAREIGN, Mala Herba, Andrea, Fernanda Arrau, Willow, Josey Rebelle and Yen Sung, as well as station residents such as DJ Amir, Sally C, Stella Zekri, Nikola, Calamidades Lola, AGY3NA and mokeyanju, and co-founders No Plastic and Richard Akingbehin.

As well as the artists, there will be collaborations with partner collectives of Refuge Worldwide: Rhythm Section, Pleasure Control, Oramics, Kiosk Radio, European Lab, Root Radio, La Notte and HORS-SOL.

As with 2022’s tour, each event will be preceded by a DJ workshop taking place in the venue. One of the night’s artists will host a two-hour, free-to-attend session, helping participants through some of the lessons bedroom DJs learn as they progress to playing club gigs. Applications are now open. As with all Refuge Worldwide programs, priority will be given to people of colour, people from the LGBTQI+ community and those otherwise marginalised from such opportunities. Apply for the workshops here.

In addition to the tour, a limited edition Carhartt WIP and Refuge Worldwide clothing piece will be released in September. Founded in 1994, Carhartt WIP is the subculture and media-focused offshoot of the beloved workwear brand, Carhartt.
