Netherlands

The Netherlands (Dutch: Nederland) is located in Northwestern Europe, and bordered by the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east. The capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government is The Hague. The Netherlands is often called Holland, which is formally incorrect as North and South Holland are merely two of its twelve provinces. The word Dutch is used to refer to the people, the language, and anything appertaining to the Netherlands.

 

The NetherlandsHistory

Although the scene in The Netherlands is as old as psy-trance itself, it has been keeping itself to its shores. Psy-trance in the Netherlands has been spreading its wings for a very long time. It began at the Ruigoord, the squatted village that later became legalized. This pioneering era was also felt in the club Trance Buda, where local DJs hosted regular nights. Meanwhile, psy-trance was also morphing into an underground scene while the old squat the Silo pumped wild psychedelic parties in its basement.

With the closing of the Silo, the scene moved to the Elf, the squatted embassy of Belgium that for three years became the glowing light of psychedelic trance. Housing up to 300 seasonal members and many travellers from everywhere in the world, the Elf made an impressive imprint in the Dutch psy-trance and opened it for international trancers, bringing the very spirit of Goa to the Netherlands.
