Audio Obscura introduced earlier this 12 months that they'd be internet hosting three nights of techno at a well-known Dutch jail, the Bijlmerbajes Prison, at Amsterdam Dance Event this 12 months – however just some days away from the beginning of the competition and convention, the occasions aren't any extra.

The occasions firm posted at this time on a now-cancelled occasion with Seth Troxler and Honey Dijon, initially slated for Thursday, October 18, citing issues with the venue and native authorities

Over the final couple of years, we now have challenged ourselves by pushing boundaries, organizing occasions in extraordinary venues throughout Amsterdam. Our most important aim has at all times been to supply the guests a novel expertise. We have been lucky sufficient to have a fantastic working relationship with the progressive Amsterdam City Council, who've at all times been supportive of our ventures. However, working with these venues brings on additional dangers as there are many elements to think about that one usually wouldn't even have to consider.

Due to newly revealed points in the course of the license utility course of past our management, we and the native authorities should not capable of assure the protection on the Bijlmer jail anymore. Therefore we're pressured to make the extraordinarily tough determination to cancel the Bijlmer jail occasions throughout Amsterdam Dance Event.

We are totally conscious that this can be a main disappointment to everybody who has purchased tickets and was wanting ahead to rave in a jail with us. We are with you and hope everybody understands that after months of laborious work we did all the things in our energy to make this occur. canceling so near the precise occasion is nowhere close to how we envisioned it ourselves. We heard about this final week and have since tried to resolve the problem on one hand and in the meantime seek for different venues alternatively. It turned out to be a mission unimaginable.

Alternative occasions with some tickets left:
Audio Obscura x Mariel Ito aka Maceo Plex at Central Station 
All Day I Dream & Days like Nights – ADE 

We are discussing to advertise new Bijlmer jail occasions for later this 12 months or early 2019 when the present circumstances that made us cease don't apply anymore.

Much love, Audio Obscura

We can solely think about that the quantity of planning and logistical particulars wanted for such an occasion – with an unimaginable venue – have been immense, and we’re unhappy to see the occasions cancelled so near the beginning of ADE. We have excessive hopes for subsequent 12 months, Audio Obscura!
