Klokgebouw Celebrates the Future: A Free Night with Music, Art and Food

14-05-2016 - 15-05-2016, 18:00 on 14 May - 04:00 on 15 May

Klokgebouw in Strijp-S

Eindhoven celebrates the future in the weekend of May 14th and 15th. Philips exists 125 years and on several locations the city will be buzzing with activities to celebrate this birthday. Through the years Philips has had a big impact on (electronic) music and art. Therefore, Eindhoven cultural organisations treat the city to a special cultural line-up at Strijp-S. Where else than in the monumental Klokgebouw, a former Philips factory, visitors can go for a free and diverse program of music, art and food on May 14th from 6 pm to 4 am: from drone show to DJs, from rocking Philicorda organs to specialbeers and from museum robot to experimental Musiclab.


Music: Philicorda Stage and Local Club Night

The musical program starts at 7 pm, when the Philicorda organs begin to roar. Philicorda is an electronic organ, built and designed in the 60s by Philips so people could make music in an affordable and feasible way. At the Effenaar-programmed Philicorda Stage you will see Birth of Joy, Orgel Vreten, zZz, The Stekkers and DODDE raging over the keys of their organs.

Between 12 and 4 am STRP hosts a Local Club Night where you can dance on the beats of Eindhoven bases dj's: Discos Horizontes x Roti Babi, Wildlife, Cafe Tuesday, Room 306, Content & Arcade, Spatial x Fade to Noise, TNTUS & SAN2.


Art: museum  robot and Museum Mangée by Young Art Crowd

After closing time walking through the Van Abbemuseum and admiring the collection? On May 14th this is possible! From the Klokgebouw you control the first European museum robot and watch over his shoulder on a big screen. The Young Art Crowd brings their one-day restaurant Musée Manger to the Klokgebouw to eat, talk and enjoy.



With a selection of cuisines, there is no room for hunger and thirst during Klokgebouw viert de toekomst. Eindhoven mobile restaurants, including Eten zonder Streken and special beer brewery Van Moll, bring their foodtrucks and to grill, cut, cook and poor for you from 6 to 12 pm. DJs from Club Naaldwerk bring their finest LPs and singles to make the food taste even better.
