Sometime in October, while I was deejaying at an event, I met Miriam Flores. Miriam is a Brazilian techno DJ that has lived in Rotterdam for over 20 years. She recently bought an old cargo boat, drove it to the city, and turned it into her house. After checking out it’s massive and unused basement, we both looked at each other and realized that A PARTY HAD TO BE THROWN HERE. Another two-month journey started with the goal of turning the boat into the most unique dancefloor in town. The Naughty Boat Party project was born. However, this time we wanted to host a proper rave, so we contacted Poing (former club BAR) to use its club space for an afterparty.
After 2 months of preparations everything worked out; 12 hours of nonstop music from DJs from around the country. My dream to organize an event at the space previously used by BAR came true, and 100% of pre-sale tickets (260 in total) sold out before the event. Many thanks to Miriam, Royal Surf Club and everyone involved in this project.
