Further, we do organize shows in Amsterdam, mostly with a focus on electronic and electro-acoustic music. In the past, we also put on shows for psychedelic and experimental guitar music, but currently we don’t have plans do so.
In our series Ruisburo at De Ruimte we also work with New Emergences to promote more diversity in experimental (electronic) music.
Demo policy (updated September 20th, 2022)
This is for our regular series and contemporary series.
Our schedule is full until the end of 2023, and we are not looking for new music or musicians for 2024.
As such, we don’t accept any demos.
