Stay & Play: Amado, 14th October 2016

If you dig Kurt Vile, Jack Savoretti, Kings of Leon or Rival Sons then Dutch musician Amado could well be up your street. Amado graduated from the respected Herman Brood Academy in 2012 and toured with various bands in the Netherlands  and Belgium. He’s now flying solo and anyone staying with us on October 14th is in for a real treat. He’ll be performing songs from his gorgeous album ‘Falling from the sky’ at our very own ZincBAR. So come on down, grab a drink and let Amado’s dreamy voice transport you to another world for the night. Head over to Amado’s facebook page to see what he’s all about.

Amado has come to us through our Stay & Play programme which gives artists free accomodation in exchange for playing a gig at the hostel. If you’re interested in getting involved, drop us an email to [email protected]

We’ve partnered with our lovely neighbours at The Eye Film Museum to bring you a programme of in-hostel events as part of KLIK! Festival, Amsterdam’s annual celebration of animation. KLIK! is all about bringing animation to a wider audience in fresh and exciting new ways. Animation has the power to bridge the gap between the playful and the serious. It’s at once universal and easy to grasp whilst simultaneously being able to broach surprisingly complex subject matter. Between the 25th and the 30th October you’ll be able to check out various events taking place around the hostel and you can also hop next door to The Eye to see what’s happening over there. Visit our October schedule to see what’s planned at ClinkNOORD and head to KLIK!’s website for more info on the festival.

Your Canvas

There’s some incredible artwork around the hostel, painted by artists who’ve come to us through our ClinkCREATIVE initiative (ClinkCREATIVE is our collection of programmes set up to engage guests and local communities with artists, musicians and creatives in exciting cities).

Now it’s your time for our guests to have a go! If you’re staying with us in October, this canvas is all YOURS. It’s your chance to unleash your inner artist, collaborate with other guests, get creative, be playful, have fun. When finished, this big art piece will tell the collective story of the travellers who’ve passed through ClinkNOORD’s halls. So what are you waiting for? Get stuck in and make your mark!
Remember, if you don’t want to miss out on all the cool, creative stuff happening at ClinkNOORD and Amsterdam this Octover, book your bed now!
