A HAARLEM KINGSDAY

We are looking forward to this tuesday when The Benelux will do its part in the nationwide festivities and play the Roring On Stage Festival in Haarlem. All you Haarlem cuties and Amsterdam avoiders do come see us level the Groenmarkt with a full set at around 4 pm. As a warm up, listen to this DJ set by our house DJ De Messias. As a special surprise to you, it contains a part of our new single Liar, to be released May 1st. Can you find it in there?

 

After the show in Haarlem we will travel back to the madness that is Amsterdam on Kingsday where De Messias will actually play this set on the I Love Noord Ferry between Houthavens and NDSM werf from 8:30 to 10 pm. We are not fooled by his proclaimed republicanism, and expect him to ROCK the boat.

ACOUSTIC HOUSE MUSIC

Of course, you know The Benelux as a full frontal electronic noizeblast. But we have a different side. It is as intense, but not as loud. On friday the 29th we made people dance using hardly any of our usual hardware support system at De Doos, our favorite midnight post practice beerchamber. Normally it’s open only from monday to wednesday, and live music has been banned from De Doos for years after a neighborly dispute. Until last week. Oh how great it was to touch and be touched. Smell and be smelled. More acoustic shows to be announced soon!
