We are anticipating a wonderful evening complete with contemporary art, libations and community topped with a vibrant and contagious dancefloor. A key component to the evening will be the DJ positioned to perform last. We trust this individual to channel the evening’s energy into a grand finale that will leave the guests completely satiated. For this task we have enlisted Kristof. One of the driving forces and resident DJs behind the popular electronic night Green Room, Kristof moves crowds as if he were telekinetic. We are truly honored to have him as our closer. Kristof, in his own words…

There exists a DJ in our lineup who many people will be unfamiliar with. We are taking it back to the days when the adoring crowd trusted in the DJ. This man of mystery is actually a veteran with more than a decade worth of experience commanding the 1s and 2s. Born and raised in Helsinki, Finland, J-Baggs is a master DJ and producer and we are ecstatic to have him performing. Calm, cool, collected and a spiffy dresser; J-Baggs, in his own words…

RaQuel van Haver

RaQuel van Haver is a Columbian-born, Netherlands-raised painter. Her paintings are reflections of people and places which are generally not the focus of European art. Immense in scale, her works toe the line between painting and sculpture, a testament to the copious amounts of oil paint needed to create them. RaQuel van Haver, in her own words…

DJ Turne

We at Amsterdam 2.0 would like to show our appreciation for the unsung hero of popular music. The literal mover and shaker of the dancefloor-the DJ. We are familiar with handiwork of the DJ, but rarely do we get to delve into their ethos…


Performing at Amsterdam 2.0 is one of the most prolific and respected DJs in the city, DJ Turne. A mainstay within the city’s hip-hop scene, we do not think it at all presumptuous to address this man as “OG.” For your viewing pleasure, we present DJ Turne, in his own words…
