New Order Weekend Special

Grab a tour, watch a film, start a game and enjoy the party

In the weekend of april 28 and 3o, Oostenburg was Amsterdam’s unofficial party island. Roest, our neighbors, opened their doors for a new season and Mediamatic Fabriek joined the party. People were able to discover their Energy Avatar, they could play the Energy Battlefield or listen to the stories told in the hot air balloons. Rory and Ula took everybody on a tour to see all the New Order installations. When the sun set, the blue whale lit up again. At the end, people enjoyed the bubble screening and danced to the tunes of deejay Aletro.
