Our event at the Wuppertal club takes place on May 11th.

By Staff

Up next: Open Ground.

For our next party, we're coming to an exciting new venue in Wuppertal, Open Ground, which has been earning the reputation of having one of the best sounding rooms around. UK funky don Roska, eclectic Londoner Nancy June, Cologne-based dub selector Parissa and Refuge co-founder Richard Akingbehin will play, promising a night of bass-driven sounds for your head and body. The party will run Saturday from 11PM to 7AM.

Before the party starts (9-1030PM), we will host a workshop, introducing sound enthusiasts to the philosophy and technical specifics of a Funktion-One soundsytem. This 90-minute session will be a unique opportunity to learn about the world-renowned systems, directly from a Funktion-One representative. This workshop is planned to be held in German, with possibility for English translations. Participants will be welcome to stay for the party afterwards to hear the system in action!

As always with Refuge Worldwide workshop programs, priority will be given to applicants with refugee backgrounds, BIPoC, people from the LGBTQIA community, disabled people, women and gender nonconforming people, or anyone else who feels that due to their background, they face difficulties accessing music education.
