Party Report: Pitch Festival

Over the weekend past, Amsterdam’s Westerpark played host once again to the diversely curated Pitch Festival. Held over two days, July 2-3, Pitch Festival is one which, for us at least, breaks the pattern of dance music exclusive events so frequently attended.

As Saturday, 4 July was one of the hottest days we have had in Western Europe the past few years, we tried not to burn ourselves out too early, arriving around 4 pm. After a long warm up from Woody, an unsung hero of the Berlin underground, moving the crowd at the sunny Kaap stage, I though it was high time to check out the rest of the event. The whole design at Pitch is always outstanding and aesthetically ...
