New dance concept ‘ClockWrks’ in Klokgebouw Queen’s night 2008February 29th, 2008
A very special Dutch collaboration has called into being. ClockWrks is a glittering new party organised by the people behind Alda Events (producer of The Armada, Intuition and Famous parties), Sneakerz (the leading legend of Dutch house events), and First Vision (organisation of Lakedance, Flavour and other events at Beachclub Sunrise, Aquabest). These three top organisations have enthusiastically bound forces. Ambitious plans were made instantly and turned into this massive event. Tuesday April 29, Queen’s Night 2008; the whole party from the new force presents: ClockWrks – The Orange Issue in the industrial ‘Klokgebouw’ (clock building) in Eindhoven. Good box office draws are Dubfire (Deepdish), Marco V, Remy, Markus Schulz, Fedde le Grand, Erick E, Sidney Samson, Lee Mortimer and Ron Carroll.
ClockWrks will present four areas with four different styles during this mega event ‘ClockWrks – The Orange Issue’. The Armada Music area will take the lead at their expense for trance & progressive house music. At Sneakerz one can find house in the broadest sense of the word. Flavour will bring the catchiest eclectic summer sounds to Eindhoven. In the Rock and Roll Rehab area will be a lovely mixture of the Italian/Berlin underground electro sound, familiar from the popular Dutch ‘Rauw’ parties. For more information: www.clockwrks.nl.

ClockWrks has been carried by parties who have won their spurs. They have always wanted to set a target of developing new initiatives. Alda Events (set up by Allan Hardenberg and David Lewis) is a dance orientated event organisation which focuses on high qualitative productions in The Netherlands and abroad such as the Armada Nights and the Armada parties at Ibiza for instance. There is more; Alda Events will produce all events of Intuition Recordings by Menno de Jong, they will organise several beach parties at Bloemendaal with the best DJs, and they will launch eight free dance festivals under the name of Citymoves Free Festival coming summer.
The eclectic parties of Sneakerz have become an indispensable element in the Dutch dance scene for the last few years. Sneakerz has become a lifestyle. It is a creative concept without a fixed format where ‘more for less’ counts. Many house talents like Fedde le Grand, Erick E, Lucien Foort, Sidney Samson, Baggi Begovic, Funkerman and Youri Donatz have been able to develop themselves by the support of Sneakerz. The almost weekly held Sneakerz parties are happening in places such as Club Panama (Amsterdam), het Paard van Troje (The Hague), The Matrixx (Nijmegen), Club Vie (Rotterdam) and Club Rembrandt (Eindhoven), plus the different beach locations during the summer season. The organiser of all Sneakerz events is being managed by Dick Leijen.
Jochem van Pelt, owner of Beachclub Sunrise, organiser of the outdoor event Lakedance and creator of the brand new concept Flavour, (which will be launched during ClockWrks on April 29 and which will regularly take place at Beachclub Sunrise at Aquabest during the summer season) is the brain behind the third organisation; First Vision. PR of ClockWrks is being conducted by LiNC Communication.
