DE RUIMTE ❤️ SAUNAKARAVAAN
13:00 at Saunakaravaan
In the early days on Buiksloterdijk we shared a spot with our friends from Saunakaravaan, where we organised sauna evenings with live music together. They joined us in our second location, but unfortunately had to leave in 2019. After some travelling through the city they ended up in the area of Tuinen van West. Their sauna kept us sane and feeling good in years of working hard and we kept on going to their Sunday sauna evenings. For our 10 year anniversary, we want to pick up this collaboration and share the bliss of the sauna combined with live music with you.
Join us for a small festival at the beautiful, low-key and DIY wellness haven Saunakaravaan created in Amsterdam-West, with no less than three saunas, a hot tub, campfire and a dome for performances.

Based in Berlin, Niko de Paula Lefort works as sound artist.

Also known as nikoLFO, he is a resident host on Archipel Stations Community Radio and co-founder of record labels Portals Editions and Archipel Editions.
As a singer, Eva Hoogland specializes in Turkish folk music and free improvisation. Her repertoire comes from various Turkish regions with a preference for Eastern Anatolian songs. Eva comes from a musical family, being the daughter of fortepianist Stanley Hoogland and sister of improviser Oscar Jan Hoogland, with whom she was part of the psych/funk/folk band 69AY.
Microwolf is the alias of the Tilburg DIY singer/producer Benjamin van Vliet. After being the leader of the stubborn anti-folk band Moi, le voisin for 7 years, he founded Microwolf for his most intimately radical ideas. In 2023 he released his last album ‘Changelings’ on Tiny Room Records, an ambitious and jazzy prog-folk concept album about becoming a father. Live at the Saunakaravaan he brings the long, meandering pieces of this album back to their acoustic, intimate origins.
