SOCA VS DANCEHALL RED FETE

On Friday December 1st we will host our last
Soca vs Dancehall for 2017 and that will be the Red Fete.
The Red Fete is simple, all you have to do is wear something
Red. It can be a red top, t-shirt, pants, dress etc etc. Be creative.
The editions in Arnhem in 2011 and Amsterdam in 2015 were
a huge success including a sold out edition in Melkweg and
this edition is also expected to be great.

SOCA VS DANCEHALL WILL DONATE TO ST MAARTEN

We are eager for the date to reach to enjoy SVD Glow Edition,
but we are also saddened by the devastation of St. Maarten by Hurricane Irma.
This is why the upcoming Soca vs Dancehall on September 29th will also be a
benefit event for the victims of St. Maarten. We will donate a part of the income
of the event, we will also have a donation box at the event where you can
deposit cash. This will all be used to purchase necessary goods for the people
on the island. Soon we will let you know where you can drop off goods which will
be sent to the people on the island. The Melkweg is also donating to the cause.
These are just a few of the things we are doing for the victims
