Over 35 artists lined up for the Dead Space Halloween party!

Posted on: in 2016, Amsterdam Halloween Festival, Halloween, Halloween party

We’ve booked over 35 DJs, artists, freaks & acts for Amsterdam Spook‘s annual Halloween party, Dead Space, on 29 October 2016. All that’s left is to sort your ticket & costume! Check out our bloody good line-up.

Halloween venue

The venue, Hotel Arena was newly renovated in 2016 and is separated into 2 large spaces, 2 small spaces, a huge balcony, and a courtyard (which doubles as a smoking area). Each space has its own music style, acts and theme. The main hall of the Hotel Arena club is a former chapel, with 7-meter high ceilings, murals and marble pillars. There will be a green screen photo booth, themed cocktail bar – and look out for the massive 3-meter high Alien Queen prop we’re building for the stage! And, so much more….

Dead Space Halloween party DJ line-up

Wannabe A Star

Diabolical DJ of the Dark Allies parties, Maarten Nauw is set to spook the decks with dark new wave, synth-pop, electro sounds.

VJ & DJ Alex Kaseta
Resident DJ of underground parties like Spellbound and conveyor of video art across the globe, Alex Kaseta spins flammable, danceable wave & synth music – with attitude.

Otherworldly DJ Dionysius is set to spin his set of space electro, disco, 80s/90s and italopop, in the ‘Mos Eisley Cantina‘ Star Wars bar.

DJ Shirley Macholina
Model, stylist and iconic ROXY DJ Shirley Macholina (a.k.a. DJ Hart) brings her infinite energy and eclectic mix of dirty disco, italo, club, electro and rock to the Mos Eisley Cantina‘ Star Wars bar.

The galactic line-up of artists & performers

We really don’t want to give too much away, but here’s a taste of what’s in store for 29 October!

The Xenomorph from Sweden
Whether you’re a Giger fan or not, this will blow your mind. Words cannot describe the intensity of this award-winning cosplayer. Gawk at them throughout the night, and be sure to grab a photo op for a small donation to our charity, the Dierenambulance Amsterdam.

Star Wars aerialist & burlesque
Freakishly limber and supernaturally talented performer Eva Novakova will ascend to Dead Space this Halloween.

Party Predators
Hailing all the way from Rotterdam, we haven’t told these Predators there’s a Xenomorph coming too. Time to place some bets?

Live alien autopsy
Den Haag theatre troupe HipSick will be sure to put the sick into Halloween this year.

Dead Space poster booth
Don’t miss your moment to be the star on a sci-fi movie poster in this massive green screen photo booth!

Studio Nepco & Artificial Happiness
Imaginative performance troupe releases their creepiest extraterrestrials in Dead Space this Halloween.

Area 51 tricks & treats
It’s happy hour in Dead Space! Catch the Area 51 team of scientists for free shots & treats throughout the night.

Dutch Garrison, Mercenary Mercs and Arty Anna cosplayers
It’s just not a sci-fi party without a pack of Storm Troopers. Looking as accurate as they just stepped off a movie screen, be sure to grab a photo with Star Wars costume community ‘The Dutch Garrison’ or Mercenary Mercs for a small donation to our charity, the Dierenambulance Amsterdam.
