Backdoor to Open Summer Season With DJ Hector Fonseca at Melkweg

Time flies. It seems like only yesterday the indoor dance event Backdoor was organized for the first time, but Backdoor has been around for an amazing three years! Rumour has it that there is a new gay hotspot now!

“Backdoor distinguishes itself from other parties with its nice crowd and its diversity of styles and ages,” Jurandy Lucas, the creative brain behind Backdoor notes. In a light-hearted atmosphere - free of pigeon holing and discrimination - you see and meet it all; from muscle boys, fashionistas and circuit kids, to runway divas and leather men, to name but a few.

“Life is a celebration, and we want to celebrate it with the widest possible diversity of sexual preferences and variety of forms,” Jurandy continues. “We are committed to more courtesy and love for each other. Thick, thin, mini, maxi, queer, trans, drag, pitch black or lily white, it doesn’t matter. People are the salt of the earth, and we want to celebrate that!”

With the move to the Melkweg in January 2018, Lucas has taken his party to a new direction. The second edition in this Amsterdam pop temple is called “Angels in Paradise” and is produced in collaboration with Angels from Zurich (famous for the Black Party and White Party). “We take Backdoor to a higher level with international collaborations and artists. It promises to be a gigantic spectacle with top artists and a lot of visual entertainment,” Jurandy says with a big smile.

“We have booked the world’s official Billboard #1 remixer, DJ and producer Hector Fonseca. Creative director Alex Baronny Hoessly will attend in person. He is going to host his famous Angels party for the first time in Amsterdam, and he will take his resident DJ Jack Chang with him!”

Lucas is far from finished talking about this when we inquire about the June 9 line-up. “You know, Backdoor is more than just one party. That is why we also have Theo Heskes’s successful and popular party concept Totally on board. Urban legends such as Alex Sinclar, Nina, Shug La Sheedah, and of course our very own and very sexy resident DJ Diego Summers will also be performing. MC Manny and percussionist Cleyton Barros are also playing leading roles in our special Summer Kick-Off Party.”

For this edition, Backdoor will raise the level of visuals in its own unique way. Well-known VJ Synaesthesik will seamlessly merge visuals and music. According to the enthusiastic organizer, the dance floor will never be the same again. He mentions that the professional go-go dancers, the changing acts, the entertainment and the surprising performances will guarantee a top-level show.

Hector FonsecaIt seems that Backdoor is on the right track here. Anyone who thinks they need to go to Barcelona or Berlin for a large and international program or event, can now indulge in our very own Amsterdam.

For one night, the Dutch capital will be the European and national centre of the gay music and dance scene. Saturday, June 9 will perhaps be the hottest night of the year! Don’t miss out!
