Amsterdam Tech Drinks - Halloween Edition

This year, we’re holding our second edition of a very TQ Halloween, which we’ll celebrate on Nov. 1st, as an edition of monthly Amsterdam Tech Drinks. In true TQ fashion, we’re going all out with our festivities; join us in the Club for sweet tunes from our DJ, wild dance moves, and great company…and, we’re throwing in some extras for the spookiest night of the year. We’ll be handing out free shots for anyone who graces us with a costume (funny, scary, absurd, we want it all). But, we’re taking it up a notch with a Halloween Costume contest. Prizes will go to winners of three different categories, so make sure to start planning ASAP. The categories are:

  • Best individual costume
  • Best duo 
  • Best team costume

We're also excited to welcome back our partners to take part in the fun:

• Chivas Venture will be back with their sponsored cocktail bar. Make sure to grab one before they run out and head on down to the Smallest Disco (hint: wear some white for the black lights). 

• Best known for selecting the perfect in-store music for brands, TQ resident now also curate the tunes for the Amsterdam Tech Drinks, inviting different DJs from their network to play each month. This month we'll welcome Sven Prinsen, resident DJ at Shelter. Read more below!

This month, Kollekt is bringing along DJ Sven Prinsen, resident at Amsterdam-based club Shelter:

There are two things Sven Prinsen got spoon-fed as a kid: classical music and small portions of wine. His parents set the tone as professional orchestra players. But inevitably, electronic music would prevail, preferably accompanied by a good glass of wine. 

Expect the most galvanizing gems from bon vivant and partystart-shaman Sven Prinsen. With his remarkable bouquet of disco, house and hints of afro beat, he doesn’t just move your feet, but your soul as well.
