Milkshake Festival 2013
By AIR & Paradiso
For boys who love girls who love girls who love boys who love boys…
After a successful first edition, AIR and Paradiso once again cooperate to bring you all the second edition of Milkshake Festival, recently awarded the ‘Golden Gnome’ for ‘Best One-Day Festival 2012’. On Sunday July 21st, Milkshake Festival will take place at Westerpark in Amsterdam. The early bird tickets sold out incredibly fast and today marks the start of the regular ticket sale.
‘For All Who Love’ is the epitome of Milkshake’s image and describes the ambiance of last year’s smashing first edition. Milkshake is a dance festival which was born from the thought ‘everything is possible’ and shows that entertainment, music preference, choice of clothing and status has nothing to do with sexuality whatsoever. At Milkshake, an ambiance exists that is free of stereotypes created by society. Life is a party because of the range of different skin colors, sexual preferences and appearances. Milkshake celebrates the city and its initiatives and is an impetus to bring the courtesy and friendly manners back into society. Thick, thin, small, large, gay, straight, trans, black or white: people are the salt of the earth and this is what we celebrate!
Milkshake festival is a concept developed by Peter van Vught (Paradiso) and Marieke Samallo (AIR). They thought it was time for spectacle, entertainment and an interesting fusion of a selection of the liberal club nights that have a link with Paradiso and AIR.
