BKS x ADE — Secret Artists In Residence
Best Kept Secret will make a first ever appearance at Amsterdam Dance Event
Exciting news. Best Kept Secret will make a first ever appearance at Amsterdam Dance Event. On Saturday October 22 during Secret Artists In Residence, BKS will present MAAJI (Maarten Vos & JS Park), Nadia Struiwigh, Pitto and Ultrastation (Nuno dos Santos & Cosmic Force) at the Melkweg. For this occasion, these acts will jointly dive into a studio set-up at BUNK Hotels in Amsterdam Noord the week prior to the event. The results of this week of studio sessions can be heard live during ADE. Tickets are available now → Tickets.
A week before Best Kept Secret Festival started last June – and during the festival itself - musicians, producers and singers of all sorts gathered during the first edition of Secret Artists In Residence to hold magical, unusual jam sessions. With DJ, producer and musician Pitto assigned as curator of the project, Colin Benders, black midi, Tessa Rose Jackson, Sjamsjoedin, Niels Broos, Maarten Vos and JS Park were among the participating artists. Check out the 3voor12 video to catch a glimpse of what happened back in June.
Particularly, Maarten Vos and JS Park founded a pact that weekend in their shared love for modular synthesizers, an encounter from which their new project MAAJI was conceived. During Amsterdam Dance Event they will show what they have been working on live for the first time during a brand new edition of Secret Artists In Residence, alongside the performances by Nadia Struiwigh, Ultrastation, and Pitto. The artists will perform live, back-to-back, in a special cube set-up, so the audience will be able to follow along closely. This whole evening will be masterfully tied together by the artistic vision of visual artist Gert Wessels.
We can't wait to see what kind of magical moments will happen here, so we hope to see you at the Melkweg on October 22!
