Backstage at clubbing parties?.
Oh, how I wish I could walk around in a dance club with a press card on my chest! Until now I only made pictures with my little SONY Cyber shot DSC-RX100 camera or most of the time with my SAMSUNG Note 3 mobile phone.
Wouldn’t it be great to walk around with a big camera with flash light and that I could go everywhere. EVERYWHERE! Meeting the DJ’s, the artists. Taking pictures from the gogo dancers backstage.
In 1983 was my first holiday to Ibiza. Harry and I did not go to dance parties at that time. That started 12 years later with our friends Jan and Ron, going to the iT Amsterdam first and later to La Demence Brussels and Red & Blue Antwerp. We went to parties like Salvation, Rapido and Funhouse, Milkshake or Wasteland. A few years later we started clubbing on holidays. On Ibiza we have been to Manumission. We saw La Troya going from Amnesia, to Space and back to Amnesia and this season going from the Wednesday night to the Sunday night, right after Matinee on Saturday. We saw Club KU changing their name to Privilege. We saw DC10 closing and opening again. In 2004 Harry and I married at Club Las Palmas, now the restaurant of Herman de Blijker, and in this club we saw David Guetta playing for a little Betty Ford Clinic-audience. And in all those years I took pictures with my mobile phone. Thousands of pictures are in my database.
But I am getting close. We found our way to be always on the Guestlist. And if we are not on the Guestlist, we are not going! I tweet about the clubbing parties and tag the clubs, the DJ’s and artists like Nalaya and they are all retweeting me or sending sweet private messages. So it has to happen this Summer!
