Viral Radio Festival 2010

Time Out Amsterdam were on point when they nominated Viral Radio as one of the Best Events in Amsterdam. Viral Radio Festival 2010 did not disappoint at all, the festival showcased some of the best Dubstep and Experimental artist from around the World and some exceptional local Dutch talent in Juha, Aardvarck, Cinnaman, and Knalpot. The first night of the festival took place at Trouw, an old newspaper printing press turned venue. Taking the stage on the first night of the festival was Juha, Aardvarck, Cinnaman, LD, Ikonika, the Gaslamp Killer, and Gonjasufi. It just happened to be Gonjasufi’s first ever live performance in Amsterdam, and he killed it. The second day of the festival was a bit more tranquil and personal than the first, with performances by Knalpot, Ras G, and French composer Pierre Bastien, all taking place the state-of-the-art Jazz venue, Bimhuis. If you find yourself in Amsterdam next month be sure to attend the second edition of Hyperrhythm, which will be taking place during the Amsterdam Dance Event on 21st of October.
